When to visit Jervis Bay
Planning a holiday in Jervis Bay? What a great idea!
We are so passionate and proud of our stunning slice of paradise and would love to have you visit. Jervis Bay is 2.5 – 3 hours south of Sydney and about the same from Canberra- a great distance for a weekend away or even a day trip with lots of great places to check out along the way.
When to visit?
Jervis Bay is becoming a very popular holiday destination and has evolved from a small fishing town steeped in Indigenous and European history, to a beautiful and booming coastal tourism town. Surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, national parks, wildlife and white sandy beaches.
Over the years the Summer Holidays from December- February, have become a favourite holiday destination for families and people from all over the country and now the world! With an array of fantastic accommodation options from beach and bush camping to luxurious homes on the beach. During summer the water is warm and crystal clear perfect for swimming in all day and afternoon BBQs.
During autumn we are treated to pleasant, comfortable days still warm enough to swim and explore. But we start to get a hint of cool morning and evening air. This time of year things start to settle down and through the week it is not uncommon to have whole stretches of beautiful white sand boarded by bush all to your-self.
Once upon a time, winter was a very quite time in Jervis Bay. Our mild winters are now becoming enjoyed by visitors from near and far for weekend and school holiday escapes. PLUS, we have WHALES visit us on their annual migration- which is always very exciting. Once you rug up a whale watching cruise is a fantastic way to spend a glorious winter day in the bay. On a sunny day the water dazzles and if you are brave it is definitely a rewarding experience.
Spring is a really gorgeous time for those that live in Jervis Bay and those that visit. Many native wild- flowers bloom putting on a glorious show and tempting bird and insect pollinators making bushwalking and bird watching quite the spectacle.
ALL year Round
In a nutshell any time of year is special in this incredible place and Of Course we are treated to 100+ resident Bottlenose Dolphins that enjoy the pristine Jervis Bay Marine Park year round.
