Sydney to Jervis Bay – Australian Roadtrip

We set off from Sydney at 11am, later than planned  but not unexpected based on previous trips.
This trip we plan to take the scenic route whenever possible, not the quickest, so instead of taking the highway directly to our first overnight stop at Jervis Bay, we followed the coast road from Stanwell Park.

After driving over the Seacliff Bridge and along the coast past Wollongong, we arrived at Kiama to check out the blowhole and grab some lunch.

The Kiama Blowhole cafe was closing up, so we walked down to the fish markets, which worked well as we were able to get some great fish and chips as well as some pictures of the local pelicans.

We arrived at Jervis Bay around 5pm for our first overnight and after settling into our motel went down to Plantation Point to do some kayaking.

We had heard the fishing was really good off the point, but just as we got out onto the water a strong NW change hit and we were confined to the safety of the sheltered waters along the west shore.

There were plenty of fish around, including a pod of dolphins that swam past us.

A cold front moved in Sunday night washing Monday out, so we caught up on some shopping in nearby Nowra.

The next day was much nicer so we hit Hyams beach for breakfast. Apparently this beach is in the record books as having the whitest sand in the world, which would be a tough call for the judges. It’s an amazing beach though, and well worth visiting as you can see from the gallery below.
