Greenwell Point

 

 

Where is Greenwell Point, and how do I get there?

Greenwell Point (GP) is approximately 2.5 hours south of Sydney, and 3 hours north east of Canberra, by road. GP is a fishing village – the ‘Point’ is formed by the mouth of two rivers, the Crookhaven and Shoalhaven. Crookhaven Heads is a short boat ride from the main GP wharf – the Heads provides direct ocean access, and from there, a fabulous boat journey south to Jervis Bay, a magnificent marine park.

The surrounding region

 

Greenwell Point is at the northern end of Jervis Bay, a magnificent protected marine park.

From the Jervis Bay Tourism website:

Jervis Bay’s famous white-sand beaches and clear turquoise waters are amongst the safest and most beautiful in the world.

Coastal, marine and hinterland National Parks offer fantastic bushwalking, cycling tracks, Indigenous culture, camping spots, cliff-top lookouts and maritime heritage.

Teeming with native Australian wildlife, our resident dolphins play in the bay all year round. See kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats, and many rare bird & animal species in the wild.

One of the best places in Australia to witness whales on their annual migrations, humpbacks and southern right whales can be seen both offshore and inside the calmer waters of the bay from June through to November.

The many bay and ocean beaches, lagoons, secret coves and hidden creeks are perfect for swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, standup paddle boarding and surfing.

Unspoiled coastal and country villages have local produce markets, boutique shops, art galleries and a terrific museum. The area boasts world-class cafes, restaurants, pubs, wine bars and a burgeoning music scene.

Choose from all kinds of quality accommodation from luxury to budget: couples’ retreats, camping (eco-luxury or bush), boutique B&Bs, motels, hotels, cabins and self-catering holiday homes.

Jervis Bay is central to all the South Coast has to offer: Kangaroo Valley, Berry and Ulladulla all the same distance away and we are close to all the south coast wineries.
