The “Bogey Hole” is a large tidal rock pool ideal for swimming with an outer shelf area ideal for snorkelling. In a sheltered area, it is attractive for sun bathers and picnics. Nestled between the famous “Golfie” surfing reef break, Beachside Golf course and Mollymook Beach’s southern headland, access is via a short walk around the headland or by vehicle along Riversdale Avenue, turn left into Burleigh Drive and continue down to the parking area.

It is believed that the name “Bogey Hole” is from an Aboriginal word for “Bathing” and was used by Aboriginal people for 100’s or perhaps 1000’s of years as a place to “Bathe” and trap fish.

THE MOLLYMOOK BOGEY HOLE

For well over 100 years this area has been the focal point of much district activity. People often ask about its history and in his recent publication “Mollymook Revisited” author Alex McAndrew has written a full history of the mining of silica rock in our area which today we know as the ‘Bogey Hole’. However back in 1918 the area to the south of Mollymook beach was originally called ‘Flint Point’.
