Jervis Bay Things to Do

  • Huskisson Sunday Markets

    Markets at Huskisson every second Sunday of the Month. Held at the main oval. It is easy to get to and close to the main strip of the town. You can find plants, food, and all sorts of nick nacks. All super cheap!

  • Huskisson, for tourists

    You may well ask what the Duke of Wellington and the Liverpool to Manchester railway has to do with this town, so far removed from either. It so happens that the village was named after William Huskisson, secretary of the colonies and House of Commons leader for two years (1827-1828).In a quirk of fate, he was chatting to the Duke at the opening of...

    The Bay itself is around 15km long and 10km wide. Its depth of 27 metres means it is probably the deepest sheltered harbour in Australia. The pristine waters are remarkably clean and the colours range from aquamarine to a deep blue. The fauna and the flora are diverse.

  • Historic Lighthouse

    I love this, a tale of bureaucracy gone mad.Someone decided that a lighthouse was required back in the mid 19th century, a decision reached due to the number of wrecks that were occurring.So, someone wrote out where it should be located. Off went a party to build said lighthouse but they couldn't quite work out exactly where it was supposed to go,...

Jervis Bay Shopping

  • by lstylr Written Dec 12, 2010

    Was a service station in Jevis bay.

    What to buy: I was looking for gas for a bbg.

    What to pay: Was a rip off at $30 a refill compared with $15 in sydney. So make sure you don't run out of gas and if you do, get one of your white friends to buy gas cause if you look like you are from out of town they will rip you off.

    I am sure that this point would attract the most visitors. It was a little hazy and I am not the best photographer but I am sure that most people would love to have a photo like this in their album.

Jervis Bay Warnings and Dangers

    No fires allowed.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you go to honeymoon bay, and you want to stay over night on the Friday/Saturday nights, you will not be able to light a fire. I am beginning to understand why the gate attendants were laughing.

    Had we been honeymooners, it may not have been such a hardship anyway....they would have had one another to keep themselves warm.

    What they suggest is that you take gas cooking equipment. You would need to forward plan your trip because camping is offered by a ballot system and occasionally the area is closed for naval exercises.

  • The old lighthouse keeper accommodation

    A magnificent old place. I can only imagine what it must have been like for the keeper and his family so many years ago tending the light.
