Mollymook is a coastal community that spreads up and over the rear of Bannisters Point and south along the rear of Mollymook Beach, with Mollymook Creek separating it from the northern part of Ulladulla. The 2.3 km long beach (NSW 468) commences in lee of Bannisters Point where it initially faces south, then quickly turns to the south finally swinging round to face north in lee of a southern rock reef. The beach is backed by a near continuous low foredune, then road and houses, with a small creek draining across the northern end. Mollymook Creek crosses the southern section with Mollymook SLSC (founded 1933) toward the southern end. The Mollymook golf course occupies the southern headland. The beach is moderately well exposed with waves averaging 1.4 m along the central and northern section which maintain an attached bar cut by rips every 200-300 m (Fig. 4.351). A rock reef lies off the central portion of the beach, while in the south the headland and northward-trending reef reduces waves to maintain a usually continuous attached bar in front of the surf club (Fig. 4.352). Rips do form however along the entire beach during and following higher seas.

Swimming

Best in the south where the beach is patrolled, waves are lower and rips less frequent. Up the beach avoid the rips and stay on the attached portions of the bars.

Surfing

When the swell is over 1.5 m the southern reef offers a reasonable right, while up the beach the bars and rips produce beach breaks of variable quality. In summer the northern section is protected from the northeasterlies.

Fishing

Best beach fishing is up the beach in the rip holes, while the southern rocks provide a wide, flat access to deeper water.
