The pretty seaside town of Vincentia in the Shoalhaven region is best known for its powdery white sands and crystal-clear waters. A place of extreme natural beauty, uncover a thriving underwater world in Jervis Bay Marine Park, spot playful dolphins and migrating whales or just relax on exquisite beaches.
Uncover white sand beaches
Grab your beach towel and umbrella because Vincentia is home to 6.5km of white sand beaches, stretching from Huskisson in the north to Hyams Beach in the south. Blenheim Beach is a great snorkelling spot, and there’s a nearby reserve with a picnic area. Orion Beach is one of Vincentia’s best-kept secrets.
A great way to experience the area’s natural beauty is on the White Sands Walk, which begins at the Greenfield Beach picnic area in Vincentia. The 2.5km loop walk finishes at the incredible Hyams Beach. To return to Greenfield Beach, take the Scribbly Gum track through tall forest and woodland.
