Welcome to The Coastal Resort and its quietly unique blend of people, lifestyle, forest and sea.
Climate is similar to Sydney's, with long, balmy semi tropical summers and warm cosy winters creating images such as jigsaw puzzles around an open fire, picnics by the river, good food and local wine !
Beaches, Lakes and Bays abound with 35 klms of beaches to choose from. Mollymook is best known for its sweeping white sandy beach and family-friendly facilities. Mollymook Bay abounds with sealife and is home to the famous surfing Bottlenose Dolphins with frequent whale sightings during migration season.
Ulladulla is a major commercial centre offering a full retail mix and its quaint harbour a working fishing port supporting a $20 million fishing industry. It hosts a very colourful Blessing of the Fleet Festival at Easter each year with its traditional religious parade, floats and fireworks.
Milton is an old township of arts, crafts, cafe society and markets. It hosts the Settlement Fair over the October Long Weekend and its rustic Scarecrow Festival at Easter.
Accommodation options in the resort area include beachfront precinct, local townships, rural and lakeside locations with an interesting mix offering pubs, motels, guesthouses, B&B's, farmstay, cottages and apartments, eco tourism cabins, tourist parks and free camping.
Golf is a major recreational pastime with Mollymook Golf Club offering a scenic 9 holes Beachside and an 18 hole Hilltop championship course rated No. 14 in the State.
Activities include a climb for the more adventurous to the top of Pigeon House Mountain or The Castle. A drive to Boyd Lookout or Shallow Crossing enters the gateway to our hinterland of mountains, lakes, rivers and waterfalls ! Even a walk at low tide across a sandy isthmus to Green Island provides wonderful views back into the mountains. Kangaroos on Pebbly Beach, Bright Red Parrots, Ostriches, Lyre Birds, a Cruise on Burrill Lake, Wildflower Farming, Bush Tucker and Koori Indigenous Culture provide an alliance of colour and interest.
Restaurants are plentiful and are showcased in the Ulladulla Wine & Food Festival. Ranging from Alfresco to Australian Modern, award Winners to Clubs, chefs provide signature dishes that satisfy a broad market demand. Jazz often adds an extra bit of flavour to tantalise the taste buds.
Artists, Photographers and Crafts are of a very high quality and provide another dimension to your visit with our galleries, craft shops and markets taking the lead.
Sports abound with local clubs hosting championship events such as State Surf Life Saving, Country Rugby, Touch Football and Swimming. Of recent times, International Beach Volleyball has been added to the calendar of events. Not to forget Golf Opens for all divisions.
