Just a two and half hour drive away from Sydney is the beautiful Jervis Bay, the jewel of the south coast. Here you’ll find beaches listed in the Guinness Book of Records for having the whitest sand in the world.
Jervis Bay’s picturesque beaches have powder-fine white sand and crystal clear water. They’re rich in native Australian wildlife on land and sea including the resident dolphins which can be seen playing in the turquoise blue waters all year round.
Take a cruise on board a purpose built catamaran and enjoy sightings of these graceful wild dolphins as they playfully ride the waves. The coast of Jervis Bay is also one of the best places in Australia to spot whales on their annual migration. With a bit of luck you could spot humpback and southern right whales both offshore and inside the calmer waters of the bay.
The road to Jervis Bay takes you over the incredible Sea Cliff Bridge which winds its way above the ocean and around the cliff face with magnificent views. Make sure you stop to see the fascinating Kiama Blowhole which noisily erupts water through natural holes in the coastal rock. The local Aboriginal people call it Kiarama-a, meaning ‘where the sea makes noise’.
