Simply stroll through the town centre for your pick of galleries and cafes. When it comes to holiday accommodation options in Huskisson, a mixture of townhouses, apartments and private rental homes are available to travellers.

Huskisson Marine Life

While in Huskisson, spend time near or in the water to spot some of the species that inhabit Jervis Bay. Take part in a dolphin cruise to get up close and personal with the friendly dolphins that live in and around the bay. Many times, they swim right up to the boats. From May to August and from September to November, hop on one of the charter boats in Huskisson, and set out into the bay to watch as humpback whales migrate. For a really up-close experience, dive into the water. The scuba diving around Jervis Bay is top notch and allows you to see many species in their natural habitat.

Beachfront Activities in Huskisson

With a multitude of gorgeous white sand beaches in Huskisson and within easy driving distance, the water is never too far away. Spend your days lounging on the white sand or building sand castles right at the water's edge with the kids. Many of the beaches have water that is calm enough to create a safe swimming environment for all skill levels. If you tire of relaxing by the water, try your hand at the many water sports that are popular in Jervis Bay, such as paddle boarding, kayaking or snorkelling.

Explore Huskisson on Foot or by Bike

The best way to explore the Huskisson area is on foot. Along the coast, there are large cliffs to climb, and once on top, you have gorgeous views over Jervis Bay. This summit makes a great lookout point for spotting marine life, if you want to stay on the ground during your observation. A number of lagoons and creeks also flow through Huskisson, and by venturing out in their direction, you have the opportunity to see native flora and fauna and some of Huskisson's land-based species, such as kangaroos. If you tire of walking, hire a bike. Vendors can provide various models to suit your needs, including some with child seats. Cycling tracks abound along the coastline, providing another way to see the water.

It had everything we needed for a few days in Jervis Bay. Close to shops and the beach. Comfortable beds and lounge. We would definitely return again.

The little extras like a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for us was lovely, and the location is excellent. We really enjoyed going for a paddle up the creek in the kayaks, and sitting on the deck by the water was very relaxing.
