Mollymook Beach, Australia
When to go
Summers in Mollymook Beach are typically coastal Australian: plenty of sun, beach-bronzing and watersports galore. There’s no bad time to visit, but during the winter months (June – August) you won’t find as many beach amenities, such as certified lifeguards, and it can feel a bit brisk on the sands.
PlanesFly to Sydney Airport (www.sydneyairport.com.au) for the widest choice of international carriers, including Singapore Airlines (www.singaporeair.com), Emirates (www.emirates.com) and British Airways (www.britishairways.com). From here, it’s just three hours’ drive to Mollymook. Alternatively, Australia’s cosmopolitan capital, Canberra, is two-and-a-half hours’ drive and is a good choice for domestic airlines like Qantas (www.qantas.com) and Virgin Australia (www.virginaustralia.com).
AutomobilesThere’s no local train station within easy reach of Mollymook, so your best bets are shuttle bus services (www.premierms.com.au) and taxis. Travel to Mollymook from Canberra or Sydney and you’ll likely come along the Kings Highway, a picturesque national road that slices through farms and woodland to connect the capital with the beach resorts of the south in around two to three hours – hire a motor from the airport and make your own way there, Beach Boys playlist optional.
