Jervis Bay, New South Wales Holidays

Jervis Bay is an oceanic bay and village on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, said to possess the whitest sand in the world. A 70-square-kilometre area of land around the southern headland of the bay is a territory of the Commonwealth of Australia known as the Jervis Bay Territory. 

Jervis Bay Holidays

The white sand beaches of Jervis Bay make it a popular summer destination, and Hyams Beach is one of the star attractions. It's a safe, family beach that gets little swell. It can get busy in peak season, so for a bit more space be sure to check out the equally stunning Huskisson Beach and meet the resident kangaroos of Pebbly Beach. Wherever you decide to lay your towel, you'll find great spots for snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking. Keen birdwatchers should follow the two-kilometre (1.2-mile) return Hyams Beach Trail and keep an eye out for eastern and crimson rosellas.
Considered an institution, the Huskisson Hotel (also known as the Husky Pub) is a top spot to eat. Admire uninterrupted views across the bay as you dine on modern pub fare, such as a bucket of tiger prawns, beer-battered flathead or roasted duck salad. Call in on a Friday and Saturday night for live entertainment. If you're having too much of a good time, stay the night in one of eight suites.

Watch humpbacks and southern right whales frolic in the waters off the sleepy town of Huskisson. You can try your luck spotting whales from the shore, as they'll sometimes swim into the bay with their young. But the best way to see them is on a boat tour. Dolphin Watch Cruises and Jervis Bay Wild offer whale and dolphin watching tours, as well as cruises to seal colonies. Another place to look for whales is from the ruins of Cape St George Lighthouse in Booderee National Park. The lighthouse is at the end of Stony Creek Road, the last section of which is gravel. There is a car park less than 500 metres (0.3 miles) from the lighthouse, and there is a wheelchair accessible path.
