My everyday ritual is to walk from my house to Ulladulla to grab a coffee from Native. In peak season the line can be long, but the cafe is situated right on picturesque Ulladulla Harbour, so waiting is never a chore — and the coffee is definitely worth it.

Great coffee here, plus a little retail therapy. This organic cafe/shop stocks some great labels including Arthur Apparel, Duskii swimwear, Pony Rider homewares and Agent Eighteen Wetsuits.
Bannisters Pavilion, bannisters.com.au
What’s not to love about this place? It’s around the corner from my house, so we often pop up to the roof bar for an aperitif or book for dinner. And you do need to book.
Pigeon House Mountain, nationalparks.nsw.gov.au
I love this hike in Morton National Park. It’s about a 35-kilometre drive from Mollymook, with quite a bit of dirt road. The five-kilometre hike is steep in some parts, but the track is well maintained and there are plenty of spots to take a break. At the top you will have views over the Budawang Range, and on a clear day you can see as far as Jervis Bay.
