Sydney to Jervis Bay
If you’re looking for a quick trip out of Sydney, one of the most spectacular road trips you can do is follow the coastline to Jervis Bay.
Even though Jervis Bay is only three hours from the Sydney CBD, the detour you can take to get there is fascinating.
As you travel the Princes Highway, witness the amazing views of the Great Dividing Range to the right and Pacific Ocean to the left as you pass by lush green fields of dairy cattle and stunning ocean beaches.
Stop at the Mt Bulli and Sublime Lookouts, both offer incredible views of the Illawarra escarpment and the Wollongong coastline.
Mt Pleasant and Flagstaff Point in Wollongong offer even more outstanding views and a short walk to the two lighthouses within proximity of each other. Stop for some fish and chips along the way!
A detour to the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge is time well spent. You can take a break from driving and walk across the bridge for dramatic coastal views of the Pacific Ocean. If you have time, stop at Kiama for a quick dip and to see the Kiama Blowhole.
Once in Jervis Bay, you will be welcomed by a beautiful landscape, unspoilt coast and wild bushland.
There is an abundance of dolphins in Jervis Bay, so a dolphin-watching cruise is a must do, as well as whale watching during migration.
Visit Hyams Beach, where you will be welcomed by white sands and calm waters that are perfect for snorkelling. Next door, Chinaman’s Beach has spectacular rock formations and a short bush walk through the rainforest.
Booderee National Park is a must visit at the end of your trip to see the endless beaches and breathtaking views.
