Odometer: 249 km
Our first stop is Mollymook, on the coast close to Ulladulla, south of Sydney. On our way there we took the scenic route, driving over one of the most famous stretches of Australian roads; the Sea Cliff Bridge on the Grand Pacific Drive just north of Wollongong.
We made a quick stop at the Kiama blowhole, before stopping for lunch in Berry. This is a very cute country town, feels like we have stepped back in time. We can highly recommend the pies from the Milkwood Bakery!
We spotted the first signs of the 2020 summer fires, interesting to see that many scorched gum trees are covered in green shoots, nature is recovering.
Then on to Mollymook, we are staying just a block from the beach. The place is sooo peaceful after the stress of the move. It feels like we can breathe again. We had a great time walking along the beach and relaxing. The weather was amazing, it unexpectedly warmed up to 27 degrees C and we needed to get our shorts, hats and sandals out.
This is the life, strolling on the beach, toes in the water, sipping a fresh latte ….. Sigh!
- Best coffee: Native in Ulladulla
- Accomodation: AirBnB Wallace Lane in Mollymook

Inland from Ulladulla is Pigeon house mountain – my thesis area. You get to the base of a 10 m climb up a steel ladder bolted to the sandstone. From the top is a view of Cliffs of early Permian sandstones and conglomerates unconformably sitting on Devonian to Ordovician folded basement rocks. You can drive on further into Yadboro gorge – beautiful national park forest surrounded by the beautiful cliffs. with the beautiful upper reaches of the Clyde River. Best to take at least half a day.

OMG ! This IS the life !! I’m off to buy lotto tickets.
Did you go to Rick Stein’s restaurant in Mollymook ? Safe travels Janny and Mike. Look forward to reading more of your adventures. In the mean time, an Irish prayer for your journey….
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you close.
Love that prayer!
No, Rick Stein’s has been a Covid hotspot, we did walk past it (lovely setting), but decided to give it a miss. 😷
