Local Attractions

Where do we start ? So much to do..............

Of course we have Callala Beach just a short canoe paddle or swim across from your Jetty, this beautiful stretch of beach is approximately 6 kms which leads to the seaside village of Callala. Swimming, Snorkelling and fishing from your Jetty will give you days of fun, even try beach cricket at low tide on the sand bar in the middle of Currembene Creek - so much fun.

If you're a keen Stand up paddle boarder or keen to give it a go there's a great spot just across from the house over the spit where you can usually catch a small wave.

If you wish to explore further than the fantastic location of By The Sea take a drive along the foreshore through to Vincentia till you can go no further.

So may beautiful beaches to visit, Shark Net Beach Huskisson (Just a 5 min walk from By The Sea at the end of the main street of Huskisson), White Sands Beach Huskisson, Collingwood Beach Vincentia, Orion Beach Vincentia (one of my many favourites), Nelsons Beach Vincentia, Blenheim Beach Vincentia and Greenfields Beach Vincentia (another one of my favourites).

From Greenfields you can even take the walk to Hyam's Beach which is just far enough to stop at the Hyam's Beach Cafe for lunch or a cool drink before the return walk back.

You must take a drive into our untouched Boodoree National Park and visit the many unforgettable beaches, Caves Beach (Surf Beach), Green Patch Beach and Murrays Beach just to mention a few.

Visit the Boodoree Botanical Gardens and some great tranquil bush walks through the park are a must, the National Park Entrance has an information centre for you to collect all the information and guides you need.

Huskisson has lots to explore and do, we have the Lady Denman Heritage Museum with the Mangrove board walk, mini golf at the Huskisson Bowling Club, tennis courts (keys are located at Beyond the Beach clothing store), soccer fields and cricket nets, our quaint Huskisson Picture Theatre, some lovely home ware shops, clothing shops, lots of Restaurants and Cafes to choose from and the newly renovated Huskisson Pub.

Our lovely White Sands Park is great fun for the kids with our giant spider web climbing equipment, 25 metre Sea Pool to get some early morning laps in and a fantastic bike track from Huskisson along the foreshores of Vincentia.

Jervis Bay waters is respected and well looked after, for that reason we have an abundance of wild life, Dolphins, Seals, Whales, Fairy Penguins and much much more lives in our well preserved natural waters. We have a number of Boating operators to take you out for exploring the wild life and beauty of Jervis Bay, Dolphin Watch Cruises, Dolphin Wild Cruises and Huskisson Ferry's. We also have Simo's Afloat Fishing Charters and Jervis Bay Dive Charters. All of our explore and do's listed above are less than 5 min walk from By The Sea - how good is that.

We enjoyed our stay so much. Beautiful view of the water and private wharf was a lovely spot for a picnic. Great restaurant recommendations from the owner, super close to everything. Great for a few couples or family. We will be back!

We had a fantastic time in Huskisson at By The Sea. We had awesome weather for our weekend away which made the view from the balcony stunning. The property is clean and spacious and within easy walking access to town. We took advantage of a discount voucher provided for a whale watching tour that became the highlight of our trip. We will definitely be back

Fantastic view and location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! The view from the living area and balcony is just wonderful.

The house is spacious and it is immaculately clean and tidy. It has a lovely open and airy beach house feel.

We enjoyed lots of fishing,kayaking and swimming off the private jetty.

The house is only a two minute walk to the shops and cafes, meaning a breakfast coffee run each morning was super easy!

Thanks to Helen for being a pleasure to deal with.
