The Jervis Bay and Basin Arts Inc holds a range of exhibitions from local artists and hosts the famous SeeChange Jervis Bay Arts Festival which has been happening bi-annually since the year 2000 and each time it grows in popularity and diversity.

With over 100 events including art exhibitions, music and songwriting workshops, food events, special guest performances and more, it is a must see for people visiting the area.
The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum located on Woollamia Rd in Huskisson is packed full of fascinating history, culture and art. Here you will find ‘Uncle Laddie Timbery’ known for his traditional Aboriginal art work and beautifully decorated boomerangs. You will usually find him in his gallery where he is always happy to demonstrate boomerang throwing or talk with you about the artwork, what the artefacts are used for and Aboriginal culture and history in the Shoalhaven.
Huskisson Gallery and Picture Framing on Owen St has a range of artwork, photographs, ceramics and jewellery from local artists. Here you can pick up hand crafted, original and one of a kind pieces that make the perfect gift to take home for someone special.
Galamban is another fantastic place to visit while staying in Jervis Bay. Hear Aboriginal stories you’ve never heard before, learn about bushfoods, medicine and survival skills and soak up the truly Australian culture that can only come from indigenous families.
