White Sands Walk
Jervis Bay activities
The forests, bays and beaches of Jervis Bay National Park are perfect for swimming, bushwalking, bird watching or just enjoying the tranquillity of the area. On the water, kayaking, fishing and boating are popular water sports in Jervis Bay Marine Park.
White Sands Walk
One of the best ways to savour the natural beauty of Jervis Bay is on foot. The White Sands Walk is an easy, hour-long walk across some of the whitest sands in the world, past unspoilt and secluded bays and beaches. The clear, blue waters of Jervis Bay Marine Park will entice you for a swim at any number of beautiful spots.
Along the way, you may be lucky enough to see the native birds that inhabit the dense bushland behind the beaches - colourful rosellas, lorikeets and parrots - as well as kangaroos and even dolphins cruising in the bay.
Start the White Sands walk at Vincentia's Greenfield Beach picnic area off Elizabeth Drive. You'll pass a series of beautiful beaches including Chinamans, Hyams and Seamans beaches with easy-to-follow direction telling you about the native flora and fauna. From Hyams Beach at the end of the walk, return via the Scribbly Gum track that takes you away from the coastline, through tall forest and woodland, finishing up at the top of Greenfield Beach picnic area. If you'd like a longer walk, you can start from Plantation Point, north of Greenfield Beach and you'll have even more time on the beautiful White Sands Walk of Jervis Bay.
