Mollymook: A Leisurely Paradise

A sleepy coastal town with a year-round population of less than 2,000 people, Mollymook is considered a prime destination for recharging. The holiday town is set on New South Wales’ South Coast and is just a three-hour drive from Sydney, so getting to Mollymook is straightforward. Every type of holiday-goer is welcome in this laidback town, as there are a variety of inland and coastal activities to keep your busy. Additionally, the mix of beachside houses, comfortable cottages, luxurious units and spacious condos available to rent out during the holiday season ensure you have the right place to rest your head at night.

Water-Based Activities in Mollymook

No matter what you plan to do on the water, Mollymook Beach is a popular destination. Its golden sandy beaches stretch endlessly and the blue waters are incredibly clear. This beach is a popular surfing hub, with its steady waves; however, there are also designated areas for fishing and board riders. Flagged swimming areas that are patrolled during the summer months ensure further safety.

Break in your snorkelling gear at Collers Beach. If underwater exploration is not your thing, simply splash in the waves, calmer than those of Mollymook Beach, or sunbathe along the shore. This beach is designated as dog-friendly, so bring your furry friend along, as well.

Bringing young children to the beach need not be a safety concern in Mollymook, as the Bogey Hole features calm, shallow waters. The Bogey Hole is a natural rock pool that provides fun for swimmers of all ages and is easily accessible from both of the area’s beaches.

Golf Courses in Mollymook

Mollymook is home to two world-class golf courses that allow you to further enjoy the scenery while playing a round. Mollymook Golf Club boasts nine holes and is set right along Mollymook Beach. At the end of your day, check out the clubhouse, which is full of amenities, and the onsite restaurant that offers additional ocean views. For a stiffer test, visit the Hilltop Golf Course, an 18-hole course. Set at the back of Mollymook, Hilltop features a challenging setup and was recognized as being within the top 100 golf courses in the country by Australian Golf Digest.

Marine Life Observation, On and Offshore

The waters surrounding Mollymook are teeming with marine life. The shores of Mollymook Bay are perfect for spotting aquatic animals while keeping your feet on the ground, as there are pods of dolphins that regularly play in the waters of the bay. Head out there during migration season to observe mother whales and their calves as they make the journey onwards. If you want a closer look at the colourful fish that inhabit the waters surrounding Mollymook, check out one of the many diving charters.

Savour Local Seafood

With its proximity to the water, Mollymook offers prime seafood for visitors to sample or catch themselves. Cast a line from the shore of one of Mollymook's beaches, and reel in your dinner. Alternately, if you are in the market for bigger fishing game, turn your interests to the deep sea fishing charters that launch from the waters surrounding Mollymook. Either of these options allows you to take home your own freshly caught seafood to prepare in the comfort of your holiday accommodation.

If you want food brought to you, check out one of the Mollymook area's restaurants. For high-class dining, check out the Cornwall, which is set in Bannister's Boutique Hotel and is run by famed British chef Rick Stein. Several other, perhaps more affordable, options can be found throughout town. Simply stroll along Ocean or Sheppard’s Streets to uncover what café or eatery best suits you.

Holidays in Mollymook

When visiting Mollymook, travellers have the option to drive directly from Sydney, approximately a three-hour journey, or to take a connecting flight and land at Moruya Airport, which is about an hour away from town. There really isn’t a bad time to visit the region, with Mollymook's hot summers and temperate winters that rarely fall below 15 Celsius. Year-round, Mollymook offers a low-key coastal getaway.

Peaceful location surrounded by wildlife

5 of 5
This was a cute cottage right on the lake. Karen has looked after everything. There were extra candles, lots of mozzie spray, about a 100 videos, and even binoculars. A small welcome hamper and cupboards filled with all the kitchen equipment you could wish for on holidays. The bedrooms had high quality linen (Sheridan) and were gorgeously appointed. everything was clean, neat and quite new looking. We loved the location and spent much of our time interacting with the surroundings - walks near the lake, feeding the birds, photographing the sunsets, feeling the wind (and there is plenty of it on the south coast). The bottle shop/grocery store is about a 2 min walk and the beautiful beach only about an 8 minute drive. This holiday home is highly recommended.

Lakeside cottage with the lot!

5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Rakali during Easter school holidays. Lots of space for our large family and all the amenities you need to keep the kids amused. Loved doing a puzzle at the dining table, whilst the kids fished off the backyard, we will be back. Thanks for the comprehensive email too Bryn, we took your advice on everything!
