Huskisson, NSW

Huskisson is located on the shores of Jervis Bay in the Shoalhaven area. A popular escape to the many sandy beaches and beautiful bushwalks around the area. Nearby Hyams Beach is known as having the whitest sand in the world.


At the turn of the century Huskisson was a major boat building centre. Today this pioneering history can be seen at the Lady Denman Heritage Complex which also houses the Museum of Jervis Bay, Science and Sea. This popular attraction is home to the Lady Denman Ferry that gracefully ferried passengers across Sydney Harbour for many years. There is a boardwalk through the mangroves from the Lady Denman Complex.

Two companies run dolphin watch tours daily departing from the Huskisson wharf . Whale watching tours operate June & July as these majestic humpback whales make their way up the east coast to mate in the warm tropical waters and September to November as they return with their young.

Beautiful pristine beaches, coastline walks and a cycleway will have you out and about enjoying the scenery. It is a short drive to Booderee National Park, with its beautiful beaches, bountiful birdlife, wonderful nature walks and botanic gardens. Just a short drive inland, sitting like a mountain pocket is the beautiful Kangaroo Valley.


Accommodation is available in Motels, The Husky Pub, Caravan Pakes, Self Contained Houses & B & B’s.
