Erowal Bay is a quiet village on St. Georges Basin in an area of natural beauty surrounded by kangaroos, pelicans and other wildlife, but only minutes from Jervis Bay and the townships of Hyams Beach, Vincentia and Huskisson . It is located 3 hours from Sydney or 2.5 hours from Canberra and Sydney airport. The area is perfect for walking, playing tennis at the local village courts or relaxing in the sleepy village atmosphere surrounded by kangaroos and other wildlife.

Waterskiing, fishing, canoeing and windsurfing are just some of the activities to be enjoyed on St George's Basin.

Nearby, there is a boat ramp and local store with videos, takeaway food, petrol, alcohol and groceries.

Attractions at nearby Jervis Bay (Huskisson, Vincentia and Hyams Beach) include dolphin cruises, scuba diving, cafes, restaurants, golf course, movie theatre and supermarket.

Booderee National Park, a 10 minute drive away is a place of outstanding natural beauty. 'Booderee' is an Aboriginal word from the Dhurga language meaning 'bay of plenty' or 'plenty of fish'. Booderee is owned by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community and has always been a significant place for Koori people. Please care for the land and waters as this is a very special place. Booderee offers a wide range of activities. Learn about Koori culture and traditional foods through Booderee's Aboriginal interpretive program. Enjoy a wide range of walks, surf at Cave beach or swim among the fish in the tranquil waters of Green Patch beach. The historic Cape St George Lighthouse is the perfect location for whale and bird watching.

Visit The botanic Gardens in Booderee National Park (open 9am - 5pm daily) or stop by the visitor centre (9am - 4pm daily.)

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at George's. The peaceful location and beautifully done house made our stay very enjoyable. A morning of kangaroos, chickens and Kayaks made the kids so happy. We loved it.

Serenity on the water

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

The cottage had everything we needed and we all (especially the kids) enjoyed the opportunity to use the kayaks and the fire pit (which was already made!)

We have been to the South Coast many times and enjoyed exploring Erowal Bay - such a lovely and untouched area.

Thanks to Warren and Beth (and Lily the dog)

Couldn't have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

George's on the Basin was perfect for our needs as a group of four (2 couples). The house itself was well equipped with a good kitchen and bathroom, big tv for movies in the evening and even complementary kayaks! Warren was very welcoming and accommodating of our request to check in a little earlier. Would strongly recommend a stay at Goerges, we'll be back someday!

So quiet and charming

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for a quiet kid free weekend. The house was well appointed, clean and comfortable and had such a charming feel. We especially loved the visit from the beagle and chickens. We will be back for sure. Thank you
