Local Attractions

There is everything from fishing, swimming, water skiing, surfing, snorkelling, diving, boating, bird watching to bushwalking as well as several great eateries.

Fishing, swimming and water skiing in Burrill Lake (only 100m away) including use of our 2-man kayak. Surfing and swimming at the local beach 10 minutes walk away (the patrolled beach is at Mollymook). There are other beach areas worth visiting, like Tabourie and Dolphin Point.

Mollymook has two golf courses and, for the walking enthusiasts, why not conquer the peak of Pigeonhouse Mountain (30 km drive away).

Bird watching, mini golf, tennis and the Tabourie Museum are just some of the other local attractions.


Burrill Lake has its own takeaway seafood (among the best in Australia!) and a great cafe for breakfast and lunch or takeaway healthy food. Within walking distance of the Old Boathouse are a bottle shop, fishing tackle supplier, stand-up paddling (lessons available) and a stroll over the bridge to a post office/newsagency, mini-market and hairdresser. Just across the road is a beautician/spa to complete your holiday experience.

Milton-Ulladulla boasts many cafes and restaurants with local seafood the pick of most menus. Theres also great shopping in historic Milton with Nowra/Berry 45 minutes north and Batemans Bay/Mogo 30 minutes south.

The old boathouse is a beautifully renovated home which oozes character and love

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at Burrill Lake. The old boathouse is fully equipped with everything yer needed for a relaxing stay. It was winter but the house is very warm with many heaters and loads of cosy blankets. The kitchen is cute and a dream to cook in. Loads of games and reading material provided with little chocolates for a cup of tea on arrival. Lovely touch x

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a quiet location by Burrill Lake which was great for taking the kids down to the water for a fish or play. There are local shops in walking distance or you're only 5 min from ulladulla and 10 min from Mollymook, everything was so easy. The house is great, fully kitted out with everything you could need with multiple living areas.

We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it if you want a peaceful home, great for families

A Wonderful Place to Escape

  • 5 of 5

I took my two children and their Poppy away for a few days to unwind, explore the area and bond. Although mid winter, there was lots to do (or not!) and the Old Boathouse was perfect! The owners have done an amazing job of presenting this gorgeous, charming abode. Impeccably appointed, we wanted for nothing. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and beautifully renovated it is a credit to Frank and Sue. Thank you, we hope to be back very soon! Dan & Family

Fantastic house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 nights at The Boathouse. It was immaculately clean and had everything needed for a relaxing stay. The outside deck was a great place to sit and dine on warm days and the inside dining area great when the weather was cool. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms great and we loved the different living areas for spreading out. The local fish and chip shop exceeded our expectations and was hard to resist, especially combine with something cold next door from the bottle shop. We highly recommend the house and area and will be back!
