Jervis Bay is the sort of place that scuba divers blow bubbles over. Much of the coast round here is a protected marine park, and with such crystal-clear waters, isn't it time you put your flippers on? Where Jervis Bay's concerned, diving's just the tip of the reef. Beloved of surfers and swimmers alike, it's also a massive hub for whale- and dolphin-watching, with cruises operating out of the chilled-out town of Huskisson.
