Things To Do In Mollymook, A Great Weekend Getaway In NSW

The best-known features of Mollymook are its superb surf beach, which features wide, clear waters, and its nearby, lushly green golf course. At the end of the day, there are several fantastic restaurants around. Natural and artificial outdoor recreation opportunities are abundant in Mollymook.

1. Where is Mollymook?

On the NSW South Coast, in the Shoalhaven Region, Mollymook is about three hours south of Sydney and about the same distance from Canberra. It is bordered by lush green dairy country and white sand beaches on the southern side of Jervis Bay. The ideal setting for a relaxing weekend.

2. Best beaches in Mollymook

Mollymook Beach

This is the focal point of Mollymook, a lazy stretch of sand encircled to the north and south by the town’s favorite coffee spot, The Mollymook Beach Hut, and the protected Bannisters Headland.

There is a reef in the middle that produces good waves. Everyone can find space here, including young families who tend to cluster in the south and surfers who prefer the northern end.

Jones Beach

This tiny rocky beachfront, which is not a beach in the usual sense but is an excellent place for peaceful reflection, may be reached through a spectacular coastal gum forest that borders the public parking lot at the north side of Bannisters by the Sea.

Buckley’s Beach

This is where you should go if you want to be totally alone. The only way to get to Buckleys Beach, which is sandwiched between Buckleys Point and Narrawallee Inlet, is by boat across the inlet or a trekking trail from Lake Conjola, north of Mollymook. Or you might go kitesurfing there as Peter Bacon did.

Dog-loving neighbors were ecstatic when, in late 2015, a portion of the extended Narrawallee Beach was tested as an off-leash area. After 4 o’clock, you can see folks walking, paddle boarding, and swimming as their adored dogs play in the waves.

Bogey Hole

The Bogey Hole, a tidal rock pool between south Mollymook and Collers Beach, is where a bunch of local women goes swimming in the summer, bobbing around and infusing themselves so fully they’ve given themselves the nickname The Teabags.

The first Nocturnal Night Surf Tag, one of the few night surfing competitions in the world, was conducted this year at Golf Course Reef, just down the beach, under a beautiful Easter full moon.

Spending time on the water is a no-brainer because Jervis Bay is known for its pristine seas and abundant marine life. You have two options: you may be active and go kayaking or scuba diving, or you can be lazy like us and take the Port Venture.

Dolphin cruises and the Jervis Bay Passage Cruise, which involves a sail past Hyams Beach before reaching up close to Point Perpendicular, are additional trips provided by Jervis Bay Wild. One of the best places in New South Wales to get a close-up look at marine life is here.

Join Ray on the Timbery Cultural Bush Walk on Saturday morning if you have some free time. This 2.5-hour cultural tour was both educational and pleasant. Considering how reasonably priced (just $40) it is, it has to be the best Aboriginal-owned and directed tour we have ever taken.
