Welcome to Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay's snow-white sands attract deserved hype and summer crowds often dispel any illusion of earthly paradise. But you can skip headline-grabbing beaches for a choice of sweeping bays and, just south, cove-dotted Booderee National Park.

In 1995 the Wreck Bay area was returned to local Aboriginal Australians, who now jointly administer Booderee National Park at the southern end of the bay. Interestingly enough, Australian Capital Territory laws apply, a historical quirk originally devised to allow the ACT direct access to the sea.
