Summer Holidays Busy Period Guide

The beautiful Shoalhaven is a popular place in the summer school holidays, so we have put together some information to help you get around.

Here are some Jervis Bay tips from our Visitor Services team:

Avoid the crowds at Hyams Beach and discover some of the less well known white sand beaches in Jervis Bay! Callala Beach, Huskisson Beach, Greenfield Beach, Blenheim Beach, Green Patch and Murrays Beach in Booderee National Park are all renowned for calm waters, powdery white sand and stunning scenery.
