Easter School Holidays in Jervis Bay.

The Easter School Holidays have been a favourite time of year in Jervis Bay for many locals and visitors alike. At this time of year we are often treated to lovely sunny days with a touch of morning freshness to remind us that winter is on it’s way. Yet it is still warm enough to take a dip in the crystal clear waters of the bay.

Plus, there is always lots to do!

The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum is hosting ‘Gunyah’ a FREE event celebrating the rich local Indigenous history of the South Coast. Starting at 1pm on Saturday the 8th of April, there will be local language spoken and sung, traditional food and medicine knowledge shared, the Doonoch Dancers and local artists exhibiting their work. Definitely worth a look!

The following weekend we have the Easter parade down the main street of Huskisson is always popular. The FREE community event has been running for over twenty years by the Jervis Bay Lions club, It is always a highlight with community floats, market stalls and plenty of fun to be had. The parade starts at 10.30am on Easter Saturday.

 

These are just a small sample of what is going on in Jervis Bay over the next few weeks, there are of course Dolphin Watching Cruises departing everyday which are a great way to see and enjoy Jervis Bay and what it has to offer.

"The Most Amazing Whale Experience"

We were really lucky and saw everything - whales, dolphins and seals (I didn't see the seals, but it was pointed out on our return from the trip and I missed it). This is my first whale watching experience and it surely set the bar too high for my future whale watching trips. We saw a few adult whales and also a few baby ones - all playing around and showed off some fancy "tricks". They even "played" with us by swimming under our boat - making our boat rock side to side! They (and the dolphins) got extremely close to us.
