The South Coast NSW Gem on Everyone’s Bucket List! 

A reputation for having some of the whitest sand in Australia, crystal clear waters, diverse sea life, and an extensive foodie scene Huskisson is the heart of Jervis Bay that draws visitors in every year. Only two and a half hours from Sydney and Canberra, Huskisson is perfectly positioned for regional road trips, making it the top of everyone’s bucket list. 

Adventure Explorer: Nestled within Jervis Bay Marine Park the 16 white sand beaches of Jervis Bay are an adventure lover's paradise with the well-known Hyams Beach amongst the 16. At any one of these locations, you will spot resident dolphins, playful seals, and from May to November, the humpback whale migration joins the pack. Huskisson wharf is lined with eco-boat tours and diving expedition boats ready to help travellers discover the underwater magic of the bay. Dive Jervis Bay offers you the experience of a lifetime – swimming with the whales – one of only a handful of operators approved in Australian waters, whilst Woebegone Freedive guides you through the sea caves of Jervis Bay and brings you up-close to fur seals.

Kayak enthusiasts are equally blessed with the clear waters of Currambene Creek on one side and the calm ocean on the other with friendly guides found at Jervis Bay Kayaks & Paddle Sports Co and Sea Kayaks Jervis Bay ready to help you unlock the lesser-known paddle routes.

Luxury Visitor: In Huskisson, you will also find the pioneers of Australian glamping, Paperbark Camp, complete with romantic treehouse dining at their Gunyah Restaurant. The African inspired canvas tents thoughtfully placed amongst the eucalyptus trees transforms your senses and tricks your mind into thinking you are far away from civilisation.

For ultimate exclusivity on your stay, opt for a private overnight or day sailing charter, where you can have your own captain and dedicated beach by boat itinerary that leaves you speechless. Enjoy a cocktail, or a local Shoalhaven wine and Greenwell Point Oysters at happy hour at one of many waterfront bars and restaurants like the new Huskisson Pavilion.

Family friendly vacation: Family fun is on every corner, from bike riding on the coastal round the bay track or paddling up a crystal-clear inlet with SUP with George to exploring the vibrant strip of cafes and shops on Owen Street the possibilities are endless. Just a short drive and you will be at the entrance of Booderee National Park or ‘bay of plenty’ carefully managed by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal community.

Find yourself stumbling across the sea caves at Murrays Beach or be led by the Steamers Beach walking trail through the tea tree forest towards the coastline. Pitch a tent in a natural setting at one of the four dedicated campsites in Booderee by the beach or in the surrounding grassy camps, because only good memories are made around a campfire.Transcending generational and traveller preferences Huskisson is not biased with things to see, do and explore for every traveller.
