A Winter Holiday: Jervis Bay

Experience Jervis Bay in Winter or Things to do in Winter in Jervis Bay

A Jervis Bay holiday in winter is a fantastic idea! Jervis Bay is one of the most popular holiday destinations in NSW and in winter the area 'sparkles'. The weather is a highlight with an average high temperature nearing 20 degrees between May and September, perfect for the winter getaway. The weather in winter is therefore considered mild and the days very often sunny. There’s plenty to experience during the winter months in and around Jervis Bay, including shopping, dining, bush walking, photography, bike riding and much more. An adventure awaits you and your family/friends in Jervis Bay, including the spectacular winter experience of whale watching (Mid May-Early Nov) as the whale migrate north and then return south with their calves.

Enjoy Some Local Winter Favourites

See any number 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 bow of 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 during winter or summer.

Why a Winter Holiday?

Winter time in Jervis Bay provides many fun-filled and unique opportunities. Winter tourists can enjoy a special holiday in the quieter months of the year. This is ideal if you want a more relaxed experience and want to enjoy wide open spaces and beaches. During winter the wide array of great Huskisson cafes and restaurants also await the adventurous traveller and connoisseur.

Winter can be a perfect season in which to take a bushwalk, ride a bike along the coastal track, go exploring both on the water or in the nearby Booderee National Park or even try a spot of quiet fishing. The weather can be perfect for the many possible activities in and around picturesque Jervis Bay. 

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.
