About Jervis Bay

Hyams BeachJervis Bay is a very special place. The bay has national park status due to its beauty, cultural, and natural significance. Although the area is known to locals, it is relatively unknown to overseas visitors which has more to do with being distant from an Australian city, even though it is the closest coastline from Canberra, Australia's biggest inland city.

The coastline in Jervis Bay has the clearest water coupled with the whitest sand in the whole of Australia. The sand is so white that it is almost impossible to capture the true colours when photographing the beaches.

'J Bay' as it is also known, is home to dolphins and whales, and is a great place for diving and fishing. Another place of interest besides the beaches is Booderee National Park, an area of natural bush land situated a short distance inland.
