Minke Whalers cottage was built in 1926 by Mr Francis Langridge who walked from Melbourne with his family looking for work.It was built from local hardwood cut on site and forms a pair of the original,Historic Whalers cottages on Cyrus Street.
The cottage has been recently fully restored & offers all the modern comfort & styling you would expect.
The whale watching season is also a great time to visit. Don't miss this spectacular annual migration of the Humpback Whale in the pristine waters of Jervis Bay Marine Park. "Minke" has a special arrangement with Dolphin Watch - discount vouchers are available at the cottage. The Northern Migration runs in June and July, the Southern Migration from late August to end November.
Hyams Beach is the jewel of the Shoalhaven and acknowledged as one of the world's most beautiful holiday locations. The magnificent sweep of beach is celebrated in the Guinness Book of Records for possessing the whitest sand in the world.

The bedroom and lounge windows face the Bay and views are also visible from the front verandah and expansive side deck. There are large glass doors between our eat-in kitchen and deck.
