.

Quoting the Sunday Telegraph Article: ‘Best Out-of-Town Wellness Breaks’ Sunday Telegraph March 25, 2018: If you’re in Sydney the article recommends you head for the NSW HOTSPOT of MOLLYMOOK.

“Mollymook on NSW’s South Coast boasts pristine beaches and gritty hiking trails. Learn to surf at ‘Mollymook Beach Surf School and enjoy oysters at Rick Stein’s – Bannisters by the Sea”.

Quoting the Canberra Lifestyle article: Jan. 29, 2018 “As you drive down the hill towards the main beach, you’re greeted by a beautiful sprawling vista of sand and sea. Mollymook has it all for a quintessential day at the beach. It’s picturesque, inviting, and there is plenty on offer, from sandy beaches that go for miles, to top-notch seafood, fine dining and a spectacular food trail that’s a foodie’s dream. And to work off all that feasting, there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, bodysurfing, board riding, picnicking, snorkelling, surfing and fishing”.

The article continues by providing many highlights for a getaway to Mollymook that includes its lovely beach, the bogey hole, surfing, fine dining restaurants, food and wine, Golf club and golf courses, local cafes, beach and bush walking/hiking and much more.

Mollymook Golf Club’s trained young staff are here to make your dining experience, a memorable one!

Guests at Mollymook Beach Waterfront and the Beach View cottage are excited to hear that the Golfie will again serve its Tapas menus over Easter, similar to its great success over the past Christmas holiday period, albeit it will be upstairs in the cafe area rather than downstairs as was the case over Christmas. Besides lovely food you can enjoy the best ocean views in the district. Highly recommended by  guests from the award winning 4 1/2 star accommodation at Mollymook Beach Waterfront.

NSW State Surf Titles. Day 3 – Masters Boat Racing

With a southerly wind blowing the surf had risen noticeably in comparison to the previous days. Day 3’s main focus was on the Surf Boat Racing by the ‘masters’ boat crews, male and female. The big surf resulted in a bit of carnage with the strong competition. 

The 180 Female swimmers crew of Simone Scott, Monica Mudge, Tracy Holt and Charyl Garin were swept by veteran Garth Brooks. They demonstrated enormous courage in the big surf conditions and rowed exceptionally well to gain a Silver medal in tough competition.

Highly Recommended, the purchase of a ‘Gift Voucher’ for use at the Tallwood Restaurant for that special person.

Tallwood Restaurant – Owner and Executive Chef, Matt Upson

.

Some very dear guests visiting Mollymook and staying at the Mollymook Beach Waterfront accommodation became aware of my wife’s recent 70th birthday and graciously purchased a ‘Gift Voucher’ for use at the Tallwood Restaurant, one of, if not their favourite restaurant on their annual visit for holidays each January into this beautiful area.

On their card they wrote: “To the wonderful June, a little something to keep the birthday celebrations going”. 

June was overwhelmed, she responded “what gift voucher could you give to someone that would be so useful, appreciated and enjoyed, as an evening at the Tallwood Restaurant.

We waited for the January Holiday rush to subside and then chose a carefree evening to savour the Tallwood Restaurant delights. For starters we chose ‘House sourdough and accompaniments’ an easy choice to enjoy with a recommended Pinot Gris wine.  Then the servings began. a) One of our favourites throughout the years since Tallwood opened is their ‘Portuguese fish cakes with saffron mayonnaise. We love this dish, so tasty! b) The twice cooked Duck leg followed with chilli vinegar, fragrant salad was mouth watering, so tender, the only way to serve duck in our opinion. c) Next we chose the market fish of the day, accompanied with eggplant, pomegranate, lemon, sumac. So tasty, the flours that accompanied the fish were nothing short of amazing.  d) We were already fully satisfied, the servings had been very generous, nonetheless as is my custom I had another dish on order. It was the beef rump with mushrooms ragout, silver beet and kipfler chips. Fabulous! The beef so tender and the accompaniments along with beans, broccoli, ginger and garlic filled with flavour.

Highly recommended should you be looking to give a gift to someone special that will be truly appreciated.
