Things to do. The Ulladulla Harbour Fossil Walk project was launched in 2009 and was subsequently re-branded the Gondwana Coast Fossil Walk. The concept was developed by Phil Smart and is supported by a local group of enthusiastic volunteers who provide guided tours around the cliffs and rock platforms of the Ulladulla harbour and coast line.
Learn about the Gondwana Coast-line, its approximate age, the abundance of “invertebrate fossils recognised by palaeontologists as “world class” and the type of environment the sediments were deposited,
Learn about the type of creatures that lived on the sea floor some 270 million years ago and how these marine animals were preserved in the sedimentary rock to form intricate moulds and casts. http://gondwanacoastfossilwalk.com.au/
Learn about “Tessellated pavements”, how huge boulders came to lie on the sandy beaches and much more…
The local Mollymook, Ulladulla, Milton area has some lovely easy walks.
Suitable for relaxation, exercise, or to simply just enjoy the stunning local coastline, there is a walk to suit all.
Mollymook to the Narrawallee Inlet entrance and return
One of my favourite walks along Mollymook beach to Banister Head Road, and almost opp. Anker Street take the track marked down onto the southern end of Narrawallee beach, & walk to North end Inlet entrance. Can return via beach or road. On your return journey you may wish to take Mitchell Parade winding around Bannisters Point. (Allow 2 hours)
Mollymook Bannister Headland Rainforest Walk.
