The fun continues into the heart of Jervis Bay itself, where animal-lovers can visit the Shoalhaven Zoo, enjoy some swimming, slide and splash park fun at Nowra Aquatic Park or climb into the treetops at Trees Adventure

The calm, clear waters of Jervis Bay make it an excellent place for young ones to try kayaking and paddleboarding, or it’s the perfect spot for some two-wheeled exploring through Jervis Bay Bike Hire
