Travellers seeking quiet holidays by the water may find exactly what they’re looking for in Mollymook, a sleepy coastal town on NSW's South Coast, a three-hour drive from Sydney. Mollymook offers uncrowded golden beaches, a top-100 Australian golf course and ample opportunities to fish, whether off the beach or out at sea. In the evenings, stroll along the town’s cafe strips to sample local seafood or indulge in a little fine dining. Holiday homes in Mollymook include beach houses with direct water access, modern cottages big enough for the whole family and quaint rentals nestled in the hills behind town.


Mollymook’s Beaches


Visitors to Mollymook can choose from several beaches, depending on their activities of interest. Mollymook Beach, patrolled over the summer, is a surfer’s choice, with consistently good waves. These clear blue waters are also favoured by fishermen and the golden sand is ideal for sunbathing, with flagged swimming areas at various parts of the beach. Meanwhile, Collers Beach, with its calmer waves, is a prime snorkelling spot. Collers Beach is also dog-friendly. Families with small children might prefer to splash around at Mollymook’s Bogey Hole, a naturally-formed rock pool with shallow, protected water, only a short way from the town’s surf and snorkelling beaches.


Wildlife Watching


Mollymook’s waters are home to numerous fish species and marine mammals, some of which you can spot just by strolling along the coast and others that are best observed by jumping in the water with them. From the beach or foreshore, keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, which swim in pods and often come close to humans. During migration season, the waters around Mollymook welcome whales, often mothers shepherding their young, which you can observe in their habitat by taking part in a whale watching cruise. To get to know the area’s colourful fish, you can do some diving, either on your own or as part of an organised tour.


Golf Courses in Mollymook


When you’re not in the water, you can take advantage of Mollymook’s two golf courses, set in attractive natural surrounds. Mollymook Golf Club is located alongside Mollymook Beach, affording a sweeping coastline panorama as you sharpen your skills on the nine-hole course. Afterwards, have a meal at the golf club’s restaurant, which also faces the water. The more challenging eighteen-hole Hilltop Golf Course can be found a bit further inland and is held in high esteem by the Australian Golf Digest, which ranks this Mollymook Golf Course amongst the hundred best Australian courses.


Mollymook Fishing & Seafood

Some people prefer fishing directly off the beach, while others will rent charters and take them out to the open water to catch bigger game. Even those who don’t wish to fish their own dinner can easily sample local seafood at many restaurants in town.
