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 (Cafe Brill) for breakfast and lunch or takeaway healthy food. Within walking distance of the Old Boathouse are a bottle shop, fishing tackle supplier, glass blower (lessons available) and a stroll over the bridge to a post office/newsagency, mini-market and hairdresser. Just across the road is a beautician 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.
