Whether you are looking to relax on a white sand beach, snorkel in clear blue
water, or go whale watching or bush walking, we have Jervis Bay accommodation to suit every budget and holiday need. Jervis Bay, 170km from Sydney, boasts charming small towns, hidden
creeks, secluded coves, and a hinterland of rugged mountains, waterfalls, creeks and great bush walking. See our Culburra Beach Accommodation or some Hyams Beach accommodation for a selection of beachside holiday options.
Jervis Bay is 15km long and 10km wide and its crystal clear waters make it the
perfect location for all sorts of water activities including diving,
snorkelling, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing and kayaking. Our Jervis
Bay hotels are the perfect base for taking a charter boat tour to watch the pod
of 60 Bottlenose Dolphins, which live in the bay all year round, and migrating
Humpback Whales, which pass the bay in June and July and again between
September and November.
Using our Jervis Bay hotels as a base, the breathtaking natural scenery of the
area can be appreciated by visiting the Booderee National Park. Booderee is a
local Koori word meaning “bay of plenty (fish)” and the park boasts white sand
beaches, sandstone cliffs at the ocean's edge, a ruined lighthouse with
spectacular cliff views and surfing at Caves Beach. Also in the area, is the
Australian National Botanic Gardens Annexe, which is 80 hectares large and
boasts an extensive collection of native plants.
While staying in one of our Jervis Bay hotels it is worth visiting is the Lady
Denman Museum. The museum focuses on the history of the district including
Indigenous history, early exploration, timber industry, early settlement,
lighthouse history, shipwrecks, whaling industry and the Naval base history.
The museum also has an Aboriginal arts and crafts gallery with a number of
items for sale, and a board walk through the mangroves.
