Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay is located 200kms South of Sydney, NSW, Australia - a leisurely two and half hour drive, and 260kms North East of Canberra, ACT Australia - an easy three hour drive.

Jervis Bay has been a marine park since 2003 and is a vast, beuatiful and complex natural system. The clear blue waters, the spectacular white beaches, the rugged landscape, mangroves, seagrass meadows and rocky reefs offer some of the most diverse diving along the east Australian coast: it is regarded by many as the Southern alternative to the Great Barrier Reef.

Through interpretation, understanding Through understanding, appreciation Through appreciation, protection (Freeman Tilden, Interpreting our Heritage 1957)

Surrounding the waters of Jervis Bay is Booderee National Park on the southern side of the bay and to the north is Beecroft Peninsula. Booderee meaning "Bay of Plenty" is a national park owned by the local Aboriginal people "The Wreck Bay Community" and jointly managed with the Australian Government.

The landscape of Booderee encompasses a peninsula of native vegitation, scenic beaches and bays, and magnificent sandstone cliffs.
