Just three hours south of Sydney, Jervis Bay boasts some of the most idyllic coastal scenery in Australia. Visitors to Jervis Bay are met with pristine beaches, creeks, lagoons and hidden coves. Popular activities in the area include swimming, surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, fishing, standup paddle boarding, and even whale watching—humpback whales can often be spotted resting in the calm waters of Jervis Bay from June to November.
Slightly further inland, you’ll find plenty of bushwalking and cycling tracks, camping grounds, displays of Indigenous culture, and spectacular cliff-top lookouts. The small towns and villages scattered throughout the area host everything from local farmers’ markets to art galleries and fine dining restaurants.
