YOUR VISIT TO JERVIS BAY
Jervis Bay is becoming a very popular 'all year round' holiday destination and has developed from a boat building and fishing village (see our interesting Blog on A Short History of Jervis Bay), to a beautiful and growing coastal town specialising in tourism and especially now, eco-tourism. It is surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, two national parks, abundant wildlife, white sand beaches and crystal-clear, turquoise-coloured water. Jervis Bay itself is a Marine Park with many carefully thought through restrictions to ensure its longevity and beauty. Snorkeling and scuba diving are popular in Jervis Bay because of the abundant marine life and the clarity of the water all year round.
Spring is a glorious time for both those that live in Jervis Bay and for those that visit (and wish they could to stay!).

Autumn treats us to pleasant and comfortable days that are still warm enough to swim, explore and adventure but also brings in some cooler mornings and evenings (great for brisk early morning walks and cosy night sleeping). During this time of the year, things start to settle down after summer, and through the week, it is not uncommon to have whole stretches of beautiful white sand beach, backed by the adjoining National Parks all to yourself.
May also is the beginning of the fabulous Whale Watching season that continues through until mid-November. Whale watching should be on everybody's 'to do list' and is a speciality of this area.
