With its rich maritime history, Huskisson is a laid-back town on the shores of Jervis Bay Marine Park. It's part of the spectacular South Coast strip in New South Wales, which serves as a haven for dolphins, whales, penguins and seals. In the town centre you'll find a lively street scene, with plenty of cafes, seafood restaurants, dive shops and surf stores.
The South Coast is a world-class whale-watching destination, especially during annual migration season from May to November. In addition to humpbacks and southern right whales, you can also spot playful dolphins, fur seals and penguins frolicking in the marine park.
If you want to make a splash, the local dive shops offer scuba diving and snorkelling trips to Jervis Bay Marine Park. You can also rent kayaks and paddleboards and explore the park at your own pace or sign up for a scenic boat cruise.
There's no better place to soak up Huskisson’s rich shipbuilding heritage than at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum. It's packed with seafaring artefacts, including the magnificent Lady Denman timber ferry that cruised Sydney Harbour from 1911 to 1979.

Huskisson is most well known for its whale-watching opportunities, and the coast around Jervis Bay has plenty of them. It doesn’t stop there, either; dolphins are also prolific off the coast. An effective way to see them is to take one of the many cruises from the Huskisson harbour. You can go on a large cruiser with other tourists or hire your own small boat and guide for a quieter, more intimate encounter with the animals. If you’re the intrepid sort, you can also hire a sea kayak and paddle yourself out with a guide. It’s also easy to find Huskisson accommodation here; the Jervis Bay Motel will make a good choice.
