Unnumbered Site Molloys Timber, Molloy St Bulli

The Molloy family originally lived in Sherbrooke, and walked down from Bulli Mountain to the Bulli Uniting Church and back each weekend. Later they moved to Campbell Street Woonona. Unfortunately their furniture shop near to Davidson’s in Woonona was burnt down, and then they set up Molloy’s Timber, complete with a steam driven saw mill, which is where Cavions Scrap Metal later located.  Timber was supplied from Sherbrooke over Bulli Mountain and also from Tomerong . Later they closed the Mill and operated a Timber Distribution across the road from their original site. The business was closed in mid 2013 – via Mick Roberts – Looking Back.
