Stay & Play
The famous white-sand beaches of Jervis Bay and its clear, turquoise waters are amongst the safest and most beautiful in the world. The many bay and ocean beaches, lagoons, secret coves and hidden creeks are perfect for kayaking, boating, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and surfing.
Our resident dolphins play in Jervis Bay all year round and, from June through to November, this is one of the best places in Australia to watch humpback and southern right whales on their annual migrations.
Booderee National Park, a rich repository of Indigenous knowledge and culture, will surprise and delight with its walking tracks, stunning beaches, surprising wildlife, and the only Aboriginal-owned Botanic Gardens in Australia.
