Only 20 minutes from Nowra, Jervis Bay is noted for having Australia’s whitest sand beaches.
The waters around Jervis Bay are protected as Jervis Bay Marine Park and they are home to dolphins, whales, seals and penguins. The marine park is a popular spot for scuba diving.
Much of the area is national park, with the NSW Jervis Bay National Park in NSW and Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay Territory.
Huskisson and Vincentia are the two main towns in the region although many travellers base themselves in Nowra, which is less than 30 minutes away.
