Meet the seaside locals
From May to November you will see humpbacks and southern right whales from the cruises that leave Huskisson. This area is also home to the most northerly fur seal colony, and you can also spot fur seals and dolphins from the many vessels that cruise the nearby waters.
Huskisson is a beautiful seaside town on the NSW South Coast, surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Jervis Bay National Park.
This picturesque town is an ideal place for a family holiday. Stretch out on beautiful beaches known for their spectacular white sands. Huskisson's beaches are also well-protected and suitable for young children. Fishing, diving, snorkelling and sailing are popular pursuits in this peaceful Bay.
Huskisson is a prime place for whale watching. These graceful creatures are often sighted between May and November, during their annual migration. Whale watching tours depart from the Huskisson Wharf, simply step aboard a whale spotting vessel with Dolphin Watch Cruises, Jervis Bay Whales or Whale Eco Tour for an unforgettable experience.
Take a ticket into the past when you visit the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum. This fascinating building contains a great collection of maritime artefacts as well as an aboriginal arts centre, weaving together the many stories of the area. Another highlight is Lady Denman, a Huskisson built timber ferry that historically served on Sydney Harbour from 1911 to 1979, and is now on display. The museum's expansive grounds also include a mangrove walk and lake.
In the nearby Sherwood Reserve you’ll find the Falls Walking Track, an easy, meandering walk which runs along Woolgoolga Creek to Woolgoolga Creek Falls. Starting at the Woolgoolga Creek picnic area, stroll through subtropical rainforest and see if you can the native wildlife.
