Enjoy Some Local Winter Favourites

Local Winter Favourites

A curious Humpback Whale

See scores of adult and baby humpbacks (and occasionally southern right whales) making their way slowly past Jervis Bay and occasionally taking shelter inside the Bay. Whale watching cruises will take you close to these colossal marine animals and, if they are curious, they may even venture close to the boats for the photographic opportunity of a life time.  You are likely to see whales swimming, breaching, tail splashing and plenty of water spouts as they migrate up and down the coast. Many people have placed whale watching on their ‘to do’ lists and this is a unique winter experience that is difficult to beat.

There will also be the opportunity to see the resident bottlenose dolphins and occasionally seals in the Bay. The friendly dolphins will swim right up to the bowof the boat and happily surf the boat’s wake.  Such sights as this are one of the favourite activities in Jervis Bay and is a major attraction for the area.

Why a Winter Holiday?

Winter is a beautiful time of year to take a bushwalk, ride a bike along the coastal track or go exploring both on the water or in the nearby Booderee National Park. The weather can be perfect for all these possibilities and more in and around picturesque Jervis Bay.  Water, sunscreen and a jumper are recommended for the longer excursions.

The NSW South Coast around Huskisson and Jervis Bay has some of the most beautiful and safe beaches in NSW. Many people travel long distances to see the white sand of these beaches – Hyams Beach is sometimes advertised as the whitest sand in the world.
