Twenty minutes south east from Nowra and on the shores of the famous Jervis Bay, you’ll find the historic township of Huskisson.

This town is a great location to base yourself for exploring Jervis Bay and other great areas of the beautiful Shoalhaven, and it takes advantage of the fantastic coastal and basin views and sun, surf and sea atmosphere.

Huskisson had a major boat building industry at the turn of the century and you can gain an insight into this pioneering industry by visiting the Lady Denman Heritage Complex. This popular attraction houses a maritime museum and is also the site of the Lady Denman Ferry.

Huskisson also offers some interesting shopping with an aboriginal art and crafts centre and a great trading post that will fascinate you for hours with its collection of antiques, bric-a-brac and other second hand goods.

Modern licensed clubs, the famous Husky Pub, a comprehensive shopping centre and a wide range of services ensure you’ll enjoy your visit.

Activities you can enjoy include fishing, diving, sailing and surfing as well as hire and charter boats. And you can’t miss dolphin and whale watching on the cruise boats that depart from here. You’ll also find a cinema, bowls, golf and tennis.

There are many beautiful bushwalks around the area and a stroll along the miles of white, clean beaches is a definite for your diary.

There are good services for the holiday-maker and lots of accommodation covering the full gamut from top-of-the-range resort-style, to motels, bed and breakfasts, caravan parks, holiday cottages and eco-camping.
