A medium cycle path and road ride; an introduction to the area known locally as “The Bay and Basin”.
Tourist Drive 4 - Bay and Basin
On the way into Huskisson visit the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum. The waters of Jervis Bay abound with fish and are home to many pods of dolphins. Regular cruises on Jervis Bay leave from Huskisson Wharf. During whale migration season (May to October) whale viewing cruises operate out of Huskisson. Nestled on the shores of Jervis Bay, Huskisson is a bustling village which traces its history back to the fishing and boat building industries. The shopping centre has a delightful mix of shops, cafes and restaurants. The waters around Vincentia are popular for all water sports. Visitors are welcome at the 9-hole golf course located on top of the hill. A detour from the drive can be made by continuing along Jervis Bay Road to Booderee National Park, the Botanical Gardens and Green Patch. There are some lovely spots in and around Sanctuary Point for picnics and water sports. One of the highlights is Palm Beach which has a gently sloping beach and is ideal for little kids. Boating of all types takes place here. The ‘Basin’ offers swimming, fishing, boating, picnic and bbq facilities – perfect for a great family day out. Boat ramps can be found around the waterways of St Georges Basin and are accessible by reserve. Rejoin the Princes Highway and head north for Nowra or south to Milton.
