It's hard to resist the powder-fine sand and clear turquoise waters of Jervis Bay, on the New South Wales South Coast. The beaches are among the safest and most beautiful in the country. Add amazing scuba diving opportunities, whale and dolphin watching cruises, fantastic bush campsites and quaint coastal villages, and Jervis Bay oozes summer charm.
HOW TO GET THERE
Jervis Bay is in the Shoalhaven region of New South Wales, about a three hour drive south of Sydney. A door to door shuttle service is available between Sydney Airport and the South Coast seven days a week. Trains from Sydney travel to Nowra and other South Coast destinations, and Nowra Coaches operates services throughout the region.
