About Mollymook

Paradise awaits in Mollymook, and at an approximate 3 hour drive from both Sydney and Canberra, there really is no excuse to bypass one of the best holiday havens New South Wales has to offer. With long stretches of sandy beach, lush golf courses and a thriving food scene, Mollymook is the sort of place you can enjoy and explore all year round.

Things to do

Mollymook is still your quintessential beach town, so don’t forget to pack your togs, surfboard, fishing rod, snorkel – the water activity options are endless. The bay is teeming with sea life, making the classic rockpool ramble at low tide a must-do activity for families; and it’s not unusual to spot a pod of bottlenose dolphins or migrating whales enjoying the crystal clear waters.

For those who prefer to stay on dry land, Mollymook is ideal for discovering picnic spots and coastal walks, plays host to a multitude of monthly markets and is the home of not one, but two scenic golf courses.


Mollymook Golf Course

What’s better than one golf course? Two, of course, and in Mollymook you’ll just happen to find two of the most picture-perfect courses on the South Coast. The hardest part is deciding which course to undertake first – the Beachside Course which offers stunning sea views, or the Hillside Course, which is tucked away in the hills behind Mollymook.

The Bogey Hole

Mollymook’s natural wonder comes in the form of a large rockpool, known as the ‘Bogey Hole’. A popular spot for swimming, snorkelling and jumping into the water (high tide only), it’s highly frequented by both locals and tourists wanting to relax in the safe, calm waters.

Rick Stein at Bannisters

Bringing a slice of culinary glamour to Mollymook is Rick Stein at Bannisters. The acclaimed chef chose Mollymook as the location for his first Australia restaurant in 2009, and it’s his use of fresh seafood and inspired flavours that make this an unmissable dining experience.
