Jervis Bay is, without doubt, one of the most photogenic areas of Australia. It’s little known area, particularly against grander tourist destinations, but is a pristine coastal wilderness. I’ve paid a lot of visits to Jervis Bay and in particular to its largest town – Huskisson – including this trip on a mid-summer’s day.
This is the view above Shark Net Beach. There are several boat moorings here and you often find expensive yachts moored up for the night.
Down on Shark Net Beach some tourists prepare to have a paddle on kayaks hired from a nearby watercraft shop.
Down at the wharf there’s a playground, picnic area and charter boat rides.
Parts of Jervis Bay have an almost Caribbean feel to them.
Two companies operate boat cruises out of Huskisson – Dolphin Watch and Jervis Bay Wild.
Needless to say, river-side properties here are not cheap.
Jervis Bay is famous for its dolphins and whales – this boat does trips year-round.
