About Huskisson

Wrapped around the vast blue playground of Jervis Bay Marine Park, Huskisson is a natural magnet for fans of water sports and classic Australian beach holidays. Fishing, diving, snorkelling and sailing all rank high here while the beaches are pristine, well protected and great for families.

Migrating whales are often sighted inside the bay between May and November while fur seals and dolphins can be seen from cruise vessels based in Huskisson. This is Australia's most northerly fur seal colony, as well as the only mainland colony.

At Huskisson, the Lady Denman Museum relates the fascinating history of Jervis Bay from the different persepectives of whalers, timber cutters and local Aboriginal people. You'll see shipwecks, lighthouses, some outstanding examples of the boatbuilder's craft and the history of the bay's naval base.
