Cupitt’s Winery “This is a cellar door with a great restaurant and beautiful grounds. On Sunday afternoons in summer they have live bands play.” 58 Washburton Rd, Ulladulla. cupitt.com.au. St. Isidore “This is a great one-hat rural restaurant run by a husbandand-wife team, with a beautiful kitchen garden.” 89 Croobyar Rd, Milton. stisidore.com.au. Tallwood “Go here for modern Australian cuisine – and their breakfast is excellent.” 2/85 Tallwood Ave, Mollymook Beach. tallwoodeat.com.au. Milk Haus “Set in an old cheese factory, this cafe serves gorgeous vegetarian and health-minded food.” 170 Woodstock Rd, Woodstock. milkhaus.com.au. Native “This is where you’ll find the best coffffee on the South Coast.” 2/84 Princes Hwy, Ulladulla. nativecafe.com.au. Bannisters By The Sea “I love both Bannisters for difffferent reasons. The original Bannisters By The Sea has a great pool bar, which does fantastic cocktails and great pizza. It’s kid-friendly and has a great summer afternoon vibe to it. The Pavilion, the newer of the two, has a great restaurant upstairs. The food is fantastic and I love what Mitch and his crew are doing. It has a slightly Middle Eastern open-grill kind of vibe, and the space has a bigger bar feel to it. It’s great to kick on and have a drink after you finish your dinner!” 191 Mitchell Pde, Mollymook Beach. bannisters.com.au. Stand-up paddleboarding “You can hire stand-up paddle boards at Narrawallee Inlet and also get lessons. It’s beautifully calm round there and a great option for non-beach people.” Coastal walks “Down on the Ulladulla headland, there are some amazing coastal walks with some really rare birds. It feels like you could be on a secluded beach trek.” Rennies Beach “I grew up on the ocean in Cronulla, so I’m obsessed with South Coast beaches and surf. Mollymook Beach is beautiful, but if you go further down to Ulladulla there’s an amazing beach called Rennies. It’s like an untouched national park and the surf is brilliant – but be careful because it’s not patrolled.”
