Lions Park at Burrill Lake
This Lions Park is located just off the Princes Highway (accessed via Dolphin Point Road) on the beautiful crystal-clear waters of Burrill Lake, a short drive from the coastal town of Ulladulla. The park is maintained and managed by Shoalhaven City Council, but our Lions Club members clean the BBQs on-site every day.
This is a very popular park with families as it provides plenty of shade, a playground, toilet facilities, picnic tables, 4 electric BBQs, car parking spaces and access to shallow swimming areas created by sand spits near the entrance. There are also several popular fishing spots within easy walking distance.

The Lions Ulladulla District Community Foundation - Jindelara Project
The Lions Ulladulla District Community Foundation was established in 2013 as an initiative of the Ulladulla Milton Lions Club. It operates as a voluntary organization managed by a committee, who’s president is a Lion, comprising members from local service clubs such as Apex, Lions, and Rotary.
The foundation’s main objective is to address the critical and pressing need for local respite care, for people with severe disabilities and their families/carers in Ulladulla and surrounding areas.
Australia Day Celebrations
The Ulladulla Milton Lions Club run the Australia Day celebrations at the Mollymook Beach Reserve on the 26th of January each year. The day is made up of a youth music spectacular and coincides with our regular Mollymook Markets with more than 120 market stalls.
We start the day with a Welcome to Country provided by one of the local elders followed by the flag raising carried out by the 1st Burrill Sea Scouts. The day is designed around being a family day where families can come along for the day and enjoy the markets as well as watching some of our very talented youth up on stage competing for prize money. The first prize in the Youth Music Spectacular is $2,000 with second prize being $1,000 and third receiving $500. We also give out two encouragement awards of $150 each. We have a prominent Australian attending on the day as our Australia Day Ambassador, supplied by the Australia Day Council as well as local dignitaries such as the Shoalhaven City Mayor, our State Member of Parliament and our Federal Member of Parliament.
As a standard practice, our club annually sponsors two Year 11 students from Ulladulla High School to participate in an Outward Bound course. This course is centred around enhancing key attributes, including:
- Social Competence
- Environmental Responsibility
We’ve consistently received outstanding feedback from the participants, highlighting the valuable impact of this experience.
Lions Recycle for Sight
Lions Recycle for Sight Australia has collected millions of pairs of used spectacles, sunglasses, new frames and other equipment. The program distributes regraded, or refurbished, spectacles to many parts of the world to Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and other humanitarian organisations for distribution to people in need, with no expense or obligation for the recipient.
Since the Australian program started in the early 1990s, the program has delivered over 2.5 million pair to countries in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Indian Sub-continent, East Asia, and the Far East, including China, the countries of the Pacific Rim and Southern Asia and Oceania.
If you have any glasses, or sunglasses, that you no longer use or need, then why not recycle them by donating them to this great program. Our Lions members at the Lions Preloved Bookshop in Bellbrook Arcade (see here) are available to collect donations of your old glasses.
Peace Poster Competition
For over three decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special contest in schools and youth groups. The Peace Poster Contest was created in 1988 to give young people the opportunity to creatively express their feelings for world peace and to share their vision with the world. Approximately 350, 000 children from more than 65 countries participate in the contest annually. The Ulladulla Milton Lions Club is proud to be a part if this contest, and we have showcased many fine artistic works from our local schools.
The contest theme is changed each year. It is announced in June and is open to students who will be 11, 12 and 13 years of age on November 15th of the current year.
Each year, Ulladulla Milton Lions Club sponsor students from Ulladulla Public School, Milton Public School, and St Marys School.
