Mollymook Bogey Hole Attraction
Tourist things to do, visit the Mollymook Bogey Hole, a beautiful natural feature on the southern end of Mollymook beach. It is nestled between the famous “Golfie” surfing reef break, Beachside Golf course and Mollymook Beach’s southern headland, access is via a short walk around the headland or by vehicle along Riversdale Avenue and Burleigh Drive to the Collers beach parking area.
It is a large tidal rock pool ideal for swimming with an outer shelf area ideal for snorkeling. Situated in a sheltered area it has been historically an attractive place for sun bathers and picnics. It is believed that the name “Bogey Hole” is from an Aboriginal word for “Bathing” and was used by Aboriginal people for 100’s or perhaps 1000’s of years as a place to “Bathe” and trap fish.
Because of its attraction to tourist, photographers and locals who regularly frequent this picturesque area, volunteers sponsored by Mollymook Beach Waterfront in association with “Clean Up” Australia, keep this popular “Bogey Hole” area clean on a daily basis.
Photo’s dating back to the early 1900’s show Collers Beach area as a popular picnic area and later in the 1960’s it became recognised for its now famous surfing reef break.
