Choose holiday accommodation in Vincentia, New South Wales

Overlooking the marvellous marine park that is Jervis Bay is Vincentia, a picturesque seaside town in New South Wales. Located in the Shoalhaven region of the state, Vincentia enjoys a prime location boasting pristine white sand beaches and sparkling, clean water, making it a terrific tourist destination that offers a wide selection of holiday rentals.

Vincentia is less than three hours’ drive from Sydney and only three hours from Canberra, making it remarkably accessible for visitors from around Australia and worldwide. Shoalhaven, in fact, is the no.1 tourist destination in New South Wales.

Sitting on the dock of the bay

Vincentia is one of a string of small seaside towns dotted around Jervis Bay, which is itself one of only three marine parks in the whole of Australia and is officially a National Park. An extraordinarily beautiful stretch of coastline, the bay has both cultural significance and natural importance because of its remarkable beaches and clean water – said to have the clearest water and whitest sands of anywhere in Australia.

Vincentia is one of the main hubs on Jervis Bay, served well by supermarkets, shops, cafes and restaurants. It also boasts some of the best beaches on the bay, running along its 6.5km shoreline. Shoalhaven’s popularity as a destination means there is a terrific choice of holiday accommodation, from villas and houses to apartments.

The most popular activities for visitors to Vincentia centre on marine activities – swimming, surfing and fishing are a given on those wonderful beaches. Scuba divers will find the bay a little piece of paradise as its reefs are remarkably diverse and considered second only to the Great Barrier Reef in their beauty.

But there is a much bigger reason to travel to this beautiful part of the world and it comes in the shape of humpback whales. Jervis Bay is on the main migration route, north and south, for these magnificent creatures so whale-watching opportunities from June to November are plentiful.

Beneath the crystal clear blue waters of Jervis Bay can be found around 250 species of fish, such as octopus, Port Jackson sharks, weedy sea dragons and cuttlefish. Kangaroos from the rainforest, only metres from the shore, often visit the beach and the bay is also home to pods of friendly dolphins.

A natural wonder

Some of Australia’s amazing flora and fauna can be seen in the rainforest and also along the shores of the two rivers that feed Jervis Bay. Mangroves shroud Moona Moona Creek and Currembene Creek, while the seagrass filters the water, adding to its reputation as the cleanest on the coast. Look for the black stingrays that can reach up to 2m long in the waters.

Minutes from Vincentia is the quaint town of Huskisson, which boasts a rich seafaring history. The town’s maritime museum, the Lady Denman Heritage Complex, is home to the Lady Denman, the wooden Sydney Harbour ferry. Now fully restored, the ferry was built in Huskisson in 1911.

A weather eye

Vincentia enjoys a coastal temperate climate with average summer daily temperatures of 24°C and winter temperatures of 16°C. Those intending to catch the migrating whales in their pomp will be visiting during the out-of-season winter months but the plentiful number of holiday rentals make a visit to Vincentia simple at any time of year.
