Allow plenty of time to explore the area’s rich and varied wildlife. Between June and November, the waters close to Huskisson offer one of the world’s best places to spot migrating humpback whales and southern right whales.

Hike or bike the rugged New South Wales landscape when you explore one of the nearby national parks, such as Jervis Bay National Park or Booderee National Park. Make sure you bring binoculars with you, as these parks are home to marsupials such as kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas, as well as a huge variety of bird life.

Take a day off from the great outdoors to explore Huskisson itself. See famous ships at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum then enjoy a drink at one of the town’s diverse array of restaurants, which stock wines produced at local vineyards. Finally, unwind with a movie at Huskisson Pictures. This pretty little red movie theater dates back to 1913.
