Mollymook is a seaside settlement dating back to the 1850s and named after the Mollymawk, a type of albatross.
Mollymook Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the South Coast. "The reef" is where serious surfers head, while safe swimming can be found at Narrawallee Inlet and the Bogey Hole - a large rock pool located on the headland. There are grassy reserves behind the beach perfect for picnics, relaxing and watching the kids at play.
Fishing and whale watching are popular activities at Mollymook and, if you're lucky you'll see dolphins at Mollymook Bay.
Mollymook has two very scenic golf courses - the nine hole Beachside Course on the southern end of the beach and the 18 hole Hilltop Course, in a bushland setting by the ocean.
