Where is Mollymook?

Mollymook is a small piece of paradise just a few hours drive south of Sydney and Canberra. Bordered on its western side by the Princes Highway (A1) and by the sea to the east, Mollymook is the jewel of the Shoalhaven region. Why just visit one of the New South Wales south coast’s most beautiful beaches when you could live there? This tiny enclave is home to just over 1,000 people and Ulladulla to the south, is just a few minutes away for all major conveniences. There are public transport services coming from Ulladulla that connect to city trains at Bomaderry station about an hour north of Ulladulla’s town centre.
