5 of the BEST things to do in Jervis Bay (with kids)

5 of the BEST things to do in Jervis Bay (with kids)

 

  1. Jervis Bay Maritime museum

where you can check out some of the wonderful history of the Jervis Bay area, and learn how our little slice of paradise has grown over time.  The Maritime Museum is also home to the Jervis Bay Information Centre  and often features art exhibitions of our local artists.

 

  1. Booderee national park

Booderee National Park is one of the most untouched and pristine national parks remaining on the east coast of Australia. Clear water, white sand beaches, native coastal bushland and home to incredible native wildlife. The park its self is managed by local indigenous people and offer so muxh local knowledge and share this with park visitors at the Botanic Gardens with regular tours. You can’t come to Jervis Bay and NOT go to Booderee National Park!

 

  1. Bay and basin leisure centre

The Bay and Basin Leisure centre is a short drive from the Dolphin Watch Cruises office here in Huskisson. On wet and windy days this is a great place for families to visit, with a great café, gym, spa and lap pool for the adults and a great kids pool and water slide too! Something different from the beach but still great for some exercise and to get your feet wet.

 

  1. Sea kayaking

What a wonderful way to exercise, relax and embrace all that is Jervis Bay! We have a great and very established local company that operate tours all year round. The have a range of tours available and hire options too!

 

  1. Dolphin cruise

Oh YEAH! The Best of all (in our opinion) we operate Dolphin Cruises all year, every day!! We love showcasing all the best Jervis Bay has to offer and sharing it with locals and visitors alike! We always see something different and no two cruises are ever the same.

We would love to have you join us!

 

"I really respect that the whale was more important than us"

Arrived just in time from our overnight stay in Canberra to go on the cruise. We got to see two whales swimming and breaching. Was a spectacular sight. The operators stayed what I though was a decent distance from the whales and when they had gone into the bay and another operator went in further than we did our guy decided that we would move away to give the whales space to get out of the bay. I really respect that the whale was more important that us . Well done
