A babbling clear creek flows across river pebbles spilling into a beautiful natural rock swimming pool.
Like all things care must be taken to ensure the conditions are right.
Don’t forget to take your mask and snorkel.
and bring your rubbish back…

A slow moving lightning storm eased it’s way across the bay last night.
The moon was out illuminating the beach but shrouded occasionally by clouds drifting by.
I took a couple of time exposures looking back at Huskisson caravan park and across the bay

You don’t even have to enter the water to see some of natures wonders.
carefully look around the rock pools when it’s calm and at low tide and you might be lucky enough to see one of our local Sea anemones'
(Oulactis Anemone) but be careful and keep an eye out for the Blue Ringed Octopus, small, but very, very deadly.
I have only seen a couple in all my years of picking amongst the rocks, rare but you may come across one so be careful and don’t play with or pick them up.
Located in the beautiful Booderie National Park is a place called Stony Creek…it’s an enclosed natural rock pool that can be enjoyed by all.
one end is slightly open to the ocean but the reef along the eastern end offers good protection for the snorkelers and swimmers.
Of course care must be taken, you are dealing with mother nature after all.
Make sure the conditions are right before doing anything close to the water or ocean.
The scenery around this part of the coast is breathtaking, you can get maps of all the walking trails from the park visitors centre on the way into the park.
Or from the Lady Denman Museum.
When your at the Museum take a leisurely walk along the Mangrove Boardwalk, it winds it’s way right out to the river.
If your quiet you may see all manner of critters.
this day I snapped a couple of our locals hanging around the pylons.

The natural beauty of the Jervis Bay region and it's surrounds can be astonishing, here are two pictures that look at the same area from opposite directions.
This is an area inside the northern headland of Jervis Bay known as the Docks, it has two arches that lead into a high cave where the roof has collapsed and allowing the sun to enter making it into a beautiful natural cathedral, the coloured sponges and rocks inside the cave are beautifully highlighted by the natural light streaming into the cave.
The rugged and what must have seemed to the first sailors, daunting cliffs that guard the north and south entrance to Jervis Bay.
The ruins of the historic Cape St George Lighthouse sit atop rugged and eroded cliffs
The spectacular 300ft high cliffs that guard the northern side of Jervis Bay.
The southern side of Jervis bay is flanked by Booderie National Park
The water is crystal clear and after rain small waterfalls cascade from the cliffs
Jump in one of the Fast Jervis Bay tour boats and take a trip north of the bay, where you will come across the amazing sight of Drum and Drumsticks.
All along the sentinel cliffs north and south of the bay you will see spectacular sea caves eroded by wind and water.
One of the iconic symbols of the region has to be the Sea Eagle.
Jump on a paddle board to explore the river at Huskisson and you might have company.
Take a trip into the Booderie National Park and explore the remains of the
Get up early for an early morning stroll along one of the many beautiful beaches that rim the bay.
300ft high Point Perpendicular rises above the sea, take one of the bay tours and have a close encounter with this amazing part of the Jervis Bay environment.
Early mornings are the time you will hear another iconic character of the Australian Landscape.
The bird watchers won’t be disappointed, the area is famous for it’s variety of birdlife
Another sometimes over friendly local, but who can complain when you look this cute.
The area is famous for it’s rock fishing platforms, Marlin,Tuna, Kingfish and more can be caught off some of the recognized platforms.
Currumbeen Creek winds it’s way from Huskisson right back to the Princess Highway.
White Sands Carnival.
The carnival usually ends with an impressive fireworks held on the spit opposite Huskisson at the entrance to Currambeen Creek.

Photographed in Booderie National Park.
Some 158 square kilometres (61 sq mi) of the land on both sides of the bay has been identified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because the coastal heathland supports the largest sub-population of the endangered Eastern Bristlebird, isolated from other sub-populations. The Jervis Bay natural environment is protected in the Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay National Park and the Jervis Bay Marine Park.
One of many secluded inlets around the Jervis Bay region.
If you visit this area you just have to make the effort to get up and watch the sunrise
it will put a smile on your dial that will last all day.
Another perfect day on one of our local beaches.
Late in the afternoon as the sun sets low in the west, you may get to see one of the colourful south coast rainbows that appear when there is moisture and some broken cloud drifting across the bay.
This one was rather unusual and very special and I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time.
Why not hire a boat from one of our local hire companies and do some drift fishing for Flathead and Squid.
Details can be found at the information Centre at the Lady Denman Museum.
