About St Georges Basin
The towns on the fringes of the broad St Georges Basin waterway make an ideal base for anyone who enjoys boating and fishing. These towns also offer easy access to the sheltered waters and beaches of Jervis Bay including Hyams Beach, Greenpatch and Murrays Beach and to the ocean beaches to the south.
This peaceful spot is perfect for the whole family to enjoy sailing, swimming, water-skiing, kayaking and snorkelling. Don’t miss Booderee National Park Botanic Garden which is a short drive from Sanctuary Point and well worth a visit. The scenic 40-minute Basin Walk follows the shoreline from Palm Beach Reserve to Paradise Beach Reserve. Conjola National Park has forests surrounding beautiful lakes and estuaries, and large areas of woodland and heath which become a mass of wildflowers in spring. The park is ideal for walking, birdwatching, swimming, fishing and canoeing.
