The Ultimate Weekend In Jervis Bay – Top 5 Things To Do
THE ULTIMATE WEEKEND IN JERVIS BAY – TOP 5 THINGS TO DO.
It’s no secret Jervis Bay holds many natural gems. Some of which even have some of the whitest sand in the world…
1. MERMAIDS INLET
Located along the south coast of Currarong, Mermaids Inlet a beautiful spot to explore. The path to Mermaids Inlet is dreamy. Especially in the morning when the sun is shining through the clouds, hitting your path in different shades. An inlet of crashing waves forming against tall, jagged sandstone cliffs and rock formations is what to expect.
2. GOSANGS TUNNEL
Mermaids inlet and Gosangs tunnel are about a 10 min walk from one another and both are just a small distance out of Nowra. The only way to pass through the tunnel is to get right down and crab walk through it. It only took maybe 2 minutes to pass through the tunnel. 2 minutes of crab walking for the amazing views… TOTALLY worth it! From this viewpoint you could look off to the right and see the main viewpoint of Mermaids Inlet. What gives these spots their magic is mostly the journey to them.
2. MURRAYS BEACH
One word comes to mind when i think of this beach. Tranquil. Located in Boodaree National Park – 30 mins from Nowra, lies a sweet national park filled with hidden beaches and bays! It really reminded us of Bruny Island in Tasmania. Where the tall trees meet the beach. We got to Murrays Beach after our morning adventures and meeting up with our friends. We had quite a few places in mind to visit but we got to Murrays beach in the afternoon and found it so lovely we decided to stay for a while.
2. HYAMS BEACH
The only expectation I had of Hyams was to see some white ass sand. Then we were also rewarded with some turquoise waters!! it was probably the clearest water id seen in NSW thus far. The type of ocean that looked too good not to be experienced! The weather for this day was similar for the whole weekend, we had bursts of sunshine, some bursts lasted longer than others. But with every burst of sweet sweet sun, made us even more grateful to be there in that moment. It was busy, but not overly crowded which was a treat. With the title of whitest sand in the world, you’d expect it to be absolutely packed with people and it wasn’t, so we were in great luck.
2. HOLE IN THE WALL BEACH
Hole in The Wall Beach gets its name from the sandstone rock wall with a hole in it at the eastern end of the beach. The hole has now collapsed and formed a U shape which makes for some beautiful framing for photos! The water was lovely and calm so for a while we just sat in the water and enjoyed the sunshine. Now whenever I visit a bay it reminds me of my hometown Adelaide. Peaceful oceans at almost every shoreline.
