About Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay is a diverse and beautiful landscape filled with quiet beaches, towering cliffs and lush national parklands.

Jervis Bay’s white sandy shores and clear waters make it a popular destination for holidaymakers. Beaches such as Hyams and Seven Mile Beach are great for swimming, kayaking, fishing, stand up paddle boarding, boating and surfing. Follow the idyllic White Sands Walk past secluded bays and inlets and perhaps even spot a colourful rosella or native lorikeet along the way.

Jervis Bay is a popular spot for whale watching during migration season from May to November. Find a place on the headland overlooking the ocean or book a boat tour to catch a glimpse of these majestic creatures. Penguin Head at Culburra and the lookout at Booderee National Park are both great vantage points. Aside from humpback, southern right, minke and pilot whales, there’s also the possibility that you might see seals, penguins, albatross, and dolphins.

Jervis Bay National Park is rich in Aboriginal heritage and boasts a range of native plants and animals, forests, bays and beaches, all of which make the area a popular attraction for swimming, bushwalking and birdwatching. There are also several picnic spots within the park.

Enjoy a Thai meal at Jervis Bay's Wild Ginger, or travel to the nearby towns of Huskisson and Vincentia to sample the area’s famed local produce.
