Jervis Bay National Park

Explore the Aboriginal heritage of Jervis Bay National Park on a holiday or weekend away.

 

With its powder-white sands, crystal clear waters, forests, woodlands and wetlands, parts of this south coast park seem untouched by people. Its Aboriginal heritage, however, goes back thousands of years and local Aboriginal people maintain strong connections with the land. The park’s natural riches are the ideal backdrop for a daytrip or a weekend getaway in the great outdoors. Try the incredible White Sands walk and Scribbly Gum track, go swimming, fishing or snorkelling, or relax with a picnic and a throw of the frisbee.

 

Discover an array of birdlife, spot whales and dolphins and feel at one with nature in this very special part of the world.
