Mollymook Ocean Swimming


Epic Ocean Swim, Narrawallee to Mollymook’s south end.


This morning Hans Visch completed the epic journey, swimming from Narrawallee to Mollymook’s south end. Hans explained that this was one of the items he had on his ‘Bucket List’. The ‘Bucket List’ was made famous by actors Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, in the movie undertaking experiences / achievements that a person wishes to accomplish during their lifetime.

Swimmers can take note of Hans excellent example of being accompanied by a paddler for safety. (Pics taken by Hans escort)

Well done Hans, this swim you undertook would have to be a first ever in our local area. Mollymook is well known for their achievements in Surf Boat racing and Beach Athletics, but never for swimming such distances as Narrawallee to Mollymook’s south end.

Hans, your a CHAMP.


1. From John S. the originator of the Mollymook Ocean Swimmers back in the 1990’s. John’s response: “Don’t tell anyone, but I’m envious,  its a very good swim”.

2. From Dave C; “What an achievement for Hans. He has been building up to this for some time. So great that he’s done it. Cheers Dave”

3. From Craig D; “I’m highly impressed. A huge achievement though I wonder how much protection a paddler can give you after seeing the bites some big fish have taken out of canoes! Necessary mentally at least.”

4. Awesome! Lisa C.

Amazing Lunch Specials at ‘Small Town Provisions’


Guests recently stayed at Mollymook Beach Waterfront during January for three weeks. They loved eating out at our best restaurants, not once, but on many occasions experiencing the BEST that Mollymook Milton Ulladulla offer. They loved Gwylo, Small Town, the Rick Stein Restaurants, the Altar Bar and their surprise was Small Town Provisions. So impressed were they with their accommodation at Mollymook Beach Waterfront, on departure they gave the proprietors, Ken and June a ‘Gift Voucher’ to Small Town Provisions.

Ken and June were amazed, they took these following pics to illustrate the beautiful lunch they enjoyed, accompanied by fine wine at ‘Small Town Provisions’.

Short Memorial Service for Joe




Mollymook Ocean Swimmers of past years will all have fond memories of Joe. Often he would arrive for coffee and sometimes breakfast at a similar time to us swimmers at the Beach Hut café.  

He shared many beautiful stories with us and took a real interest in our swimming activities. I remember attending his 90th birthday many years ago, it was well attended by so many locals here at the Mollymook Surf Club. After a bad fall a number of years ago, his family had him admitted to the ARCARE, age facility, Ilett Street, Mollymook. My last visit to see Joe was about two months ago and he was struggling. Today he is at peace.
