Local Tourism Drives

Moruya, A short drive from Mollymook Milton Ulladulla

Only one hours drive from Mollymook is the rural township of Moruya located adjacent to the Moruya River. We traveled down the highway stopping at Mogo for refreshments. In Moruya we enjoyed the walkways along the river bank, the history associated with this headquarters town for the the Eurobodalla Shire, a swim at the local heated outdoor pool but in particular lunch at “the river Moruya Restaurant”. The food was exceptional. I would recommend you book before you take this excursion from Mollymook Milton Ulladulla.

If I could call it a mistake, a friend at Mollymook Beach Waterfront recommended that we also go on a few km’s to Bodalla and try out the “Blue Earth” cafe. Again “food to die for”. It was magnificent, they actually packed what we couldn’t eat and allowed us to take it home for dinner.
