Mollymook Beach

Mollymook Beach is one of the south coast's most famous and best loved beaches with crystal clear waters and golden sands.

Mollymook Beach is long with ample room for body surfers, boardriders and fishers to all occupy their own areas of the beach.

The southern end of the beach is home to the Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Clubhouse and its members patrol the beach during the summer season. Remember to swim between the flags. This end of the beach is neighboured by Mollymook's beachside golf course.

Mollymook Beach often hosts State and National surf lifesaving carnivals. The colour and spectacle of these events are fantastic to witness. This is serious competition as the men and women who guard our great national tradition proudly contest a program of competition that displays their many skills and strengths and their gutsy determination.



Mollymook Beach also hosts international Beach Volleyball, another popular spectator activity.

If you want to picnic, read the papers or just stare out over the beach and ocean, enjoy the grassy reserves along Mollymook Beach.

In the reserve around the Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Clubhouse is a popular childrens playground and a public outdoor exercise facility with equipment and instructions for strengthening and stretching exercises.nippers

Further north is another reserve this one overlooking the middle of the beach locally known as 'the reef'. Beach access is found here for beachcombers and surfers.

The far northern end of Mollymook Beach is another great swimming location and explorers can continue north around the rocks to Bannister Head.

Off the point is a favourite spot for divers in the know.

Mollymook Bay

Mollymook Bay teems with sea life, an indication of its clean and healthy state. It is home to a pod of bottlenose dolphins who have been known to stop at the beach to catch a wave - a magnificent surfing demonstration that you will never forget!

Fish abound in the bay and beach and boat fishing are both popular.

Whales are often spotted during migration seasons as they make their way up the east coast to warm winter waters to have their young. On their way south again you can sometimes see the new mothers teaching their calves essential survival skills.

The Bogey Hole

One of Mollymook best natural features is the 'Bogey Hole', a large circular rock pool located on Mollymook Headland.

The Bogey Hole is a tidal pool and is very shallow at low tide. Its protective ring of rocks ensures a safe and fun environment for children and adults of all ages. Hours of entertainment can also be enjoyed whilst exploring its surrounding rock platform.

For those who can swim, and only during high tide, try launching from popular Dive Rock.

The safe shallow waters of the Bogey Hole make it an ideal location for families with young children and for those people who prefer a calm spot for a dip. It also offers safe snorkeling and is a great spot for a picnic day out.

You can easily walk around the headland from the southern end of Mollymook Beach to the Bogey Hole and Collers Beach or drive to its car park via Riversdale Avenue across Mollymook's Beachside Golf Course.

Beachside Golfing

Mollymook boasts not one but two scenic golf courses.

Mollymook Golf Club's picturesque 9-hole Beachside Course has superb sea views from the course, clubhouse and restaurant. The Clubhouse conducts a very full entertainment calendar.

Their 18-hole championship Hilltop Course is located in Maisie Williams Memorial Drive at the back of Mollymook. Visitors are welcome at both courses.
