Mollymook Beach NSW South Coast

Mollymook Beach is located on the NSW South Coast some 3 1/2 hours drive south of Sydney. It is a tourist “hot spot” with a recent competition undertaken by Wotif.com resulting in the NSW South Coast beaches being the most popular holiday destination.

Wotif conducted a “Battle of the Beaches” competition asking people nominate the best beaches. The NSW South Coast beaches beat eastern Victoria, the Queensland sunshine coast, Thailand and Sydney in the lead up to the finals. In the final the NSW South Coast was victorious over the Queensland Gold Coast.

Mollymook has been a key beach destination for many visitors over the years. It was previously awarded the “Cleanest beach” award and is patrolled by the Mollymook Surf Club throughout the October to April period.

It offers excellent Mollymook beach accommodation facilities for the tourist and the area is well known for its golf course and excellent range of quality restaurants.

Gondwana Coast Fossil Walk – Ulladulla

 

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…
  • Guided tour bookings are made via the Ulladulla Visitors Centre: Phone (02) 4455 1269.

Map for Local Walks

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. (3ha, 500m)  Located at end of Cliff Road, off Mitchell Pde.

Bogey Hole walk. (1 km return)  This walk is a favourite for Mollymook Beach Waterfront guests. It is a very picturesque walk, however if it’s high tide you may have some rocks to navigate. Commence in front of the Golf Club Restaurant, follow pathway south onto beach, around southern point/rocks, see bogey hole, surf-board riders at “Golf course reef”. (Can detour at car park and return following the road up & through the golf course)

Mollymook Beach (4 km return) Walking is best at low tide, relax listening  to the sounds of the ocean. Alternate route along Mitchell Parade walkway.

Bogey Hole / Collers Beach to Ulladulla walk. Ditto above but rather than detour, continue on from car park across Collers Beach and take either the 1st or 2nd set of steps, veer through park to Burrill St Nth. and down into Ulladulla. (This route from Golf Club to Ulladulla and return is approx. 2 km)

“One Track for All”. (1 km return, 30 to 40 min.)

Ulladulla to Burrill Lake beach walk>. (est. 6 km one way) Something different and adventurous. Choose low tide and most of the walk will be along the beach navigating some rocks with a little climbing. (Check bus timetable & catch bus or taxi back from Burrill.)

Mollymook > Burrill Lake to Lake Tabourie. One of my favourite walks following the coast-line. Prepare your self with map/directions, a bus timetable for your return journey and pre-order a packed lunch from Gav’s Deli at the Plaza Ulladulla for pick-up en route. (Best when tide is low for the beach walk from Rennies travelling south, take costumes to cross the lake entrance). (allow 4 to 6 hours)

 Millards Creek Walk. (1.8 km track, 20 to 30 min.) Very pretty walk, reasonably flat, can begin at Ulladulla Bowling club & follow Millards creek until you reach Village Drive. Can then walk across the Hwy and down Boag Street to the Mollymook Golf Club.
