The Mollymook Australia Day Festival was cancelled due to overnight torrential rain which flooded the Mollymook Beach reserve causing organisers to cancel the formalities, entertainment and market stalls.

Once the rain had cleared by mid morning the locals kept their traditional Australia day celebrations ‘Mollymook Style’ down at Mollymook beach with their family enjoying the surf, sun and sand accompanied by their traditional mid-day BBQ.

Dick was spending time at his holiday house North Mollymook and rather than swim or board ride, he sat back with a coffee capturing these magnificent images during the last week or two as Mollymook experienced some erratic weather albeit not on the scale as elsewhere in the state.

Thursday morning the Mollymook Dolphins on show

It was Wednesday evening when the rains began to abate and a glimmer of sun light emerged in the night sky around 8.30 pm reflecting the possibility of a better tomorrow weather wise. 

Thursday was magnificent, albeit still occasional showers, we awoke to a big surf running out front of the Mollymook Surf Club. Training was abandoned by the ski and board team in lieu of getting out among the big waves for some fun. Then to top off a glorious morning whilst enjoying a coffee at the Mollymook Beach Hut Cafe, the dolphins arrived to provide entertainment as they began ‘body surfing’ the waves.

The annual Mollymook ‘length of beach’ swim was undertaken in glorious conditions. Word had traveled far and wide with out of town swimmers making phone contact days before the swim to check start times and OK to join the peloton. This year we had a record number of 49 swimmers taking part with 20 swimmers doing the entire 4 Km return journey and an additional 29 swimmers completing the 2 Km ‘length of beach’ swim. The ocean was crystal clear with only the slightest breeze on the return journey.
