Kilometres of unspoilt coastline bordered by Booderee National Park – aptly named from the Aboriginal word for ‘bay of plenty’ – and walking trails wind across tranquil beaches and forested oases. With private villas and self-serviced apartments amid sparkling seas, calm lagoons and exotic rainforest, Jervis Bay accommodation is the definition of an idyllic weekend escape and is just a three-hour drive from Sydney.
Kitted cottages overlooking St Georges Bay mean watching the sunrise from a bubbling, waterfront hot tub. Self-contained holiday houses give larger parties the freedom, living space and comfort to feel at home in the pristine locale. While for stand-out family memories, activate your inner Irwin with a glamping experience in a multi-room tent next to waterfronts teeming with wildlife.
