Where Is Jervis Bay?

The Jervis Bay region is just 180km south of Sydney (about 2.5 hours drive). The nearby town of Huskisson offers ample accommodation options for all budgets, plus lots of nice cafes.

It’s not overdeveloped with high rises and tourist gimmicks. It invites you to wander, cycle, swim, paddle, or cruise out to the ocean to watch for breaching whales.

It sits 200km South of Sydney, which takes about 2 hour 50 minutes driving time. While many people visit Sydney to take the Sydney to Brisbane coastal highway, we urge you to turn your thinking upside down and head south before.

Craig billed the White Sands Walk as his favourite coastal walk in Australia so far. I’m not too sure about that, but it’s definitely in my Top 5.

It’s beautiful and virtually free of other walkers. The walking trail meanders around the coast, offering views of the ocean from every step.

It’s also flat, with spectacular views and only a few kilometres. This is the perfect combination of Aussie bush and spectacular ocean.

2. Visit Booderee National Park
