Fishing then look no further than Ulladulla and the surrounding waterways and lakes at Burrill, Tabourie and Conjola.

The Illawarra Mercury highlighted this to their readers in their March 20, 2018 article titled: ‘A little haven on the South Coast’

In part they wrote: “if you like the idea of fishing but have not been enthused by the thought of getting your hands dirty, messing with fishing lines and slippery bait, and god forbid having to gut and clean your catch should you succeed, well stop right there and get on-board with the gang at Ulladulla Fishing Charters. Laura and Dan Cockroft and their trusty deckhand Benny Somerfield will deliver you a fantastic fishing experience, not only because they have a terrific local knowledge, but because apart from actually catching the fish for you, they do everything!

They prepare the rods and bait your lines. They will de-hook your catch and they will clean and prepare the fish for you to cook. They will supply you with some light refreshments” etc.

.

The “Bogey Hole” is a large tidal rock pool ideal for swimming with an outer shelf area ideal for snorkelling. In a sheltered area, it is attractive for sun bathers and picnics. Nestled between the famous “Golfie” surfing reef break, Beachside Golf course and Mollymook Beach’s southern headland, access is via a short walk around the headland or by vehicle along Riversdale Avenue, turn left into Burleigh Drive and continue down to the parking area.

It is believed that the name “Bogey Hole” is from an Aboriginal word for “Bathing” and was used by Aboriginal people for 100’s or perhaps 1000’s of years as a place to “Bathe” and trap fish.
