The beaches in this area are often recognised for their spectacular beauty – white sand and crystal clear ocean. The breathtaking Hyams Beach, just a few kilometres from Sussex Inlet, holds the Guinness World Record for the whitest beach sand on earth! These beaches are all included in the Jervis Bay Marine Park, which spans 100 kilometres along the coast.
The marine park is a fabulous way to explore the region via boat, kayak or paddleboard. Surf, snorkel, scuba dive or fish the beautiful waters which seal, penguins, dolphins and many other marine animals call home. Migrating humpback whales also make their annual passage during the whale-watching season – you can take a cruise or simply enjoy the view from the deck of a stunning beachside restaurant. The marine park also offers great walking trails for those who prefer to stay on dry land.

More activities can be enjoyed in and around Booderee National Park. Booderee offers visitors beaches, beauty and bush all at once. In addition to having a diverse representation of flora and fauna, the park also has some of the highest sea cliffs in the state - with Steamers Head rising to 130 meters. The ruin of the Cape St George Lighthouse is listed on the Commonwealth Heritage List, whilst the park provides insight into our rich Aboriginal heritage too.
Jervis Bay National Park is also close at hand for visitors to Sussex Inlet. Both national parks offer much diversity from wetlands to woodlands, forests to magnificent scenic foreshores.
From your base at Haven Holiday Resort, you can explore many charming seaside villages and towns dotted along the seaboard such as Hyams Beach, Huskisson, Mollymook, and Ulladulla. Also within easy reach (one hour) are the pretty inland towns of Berry and Kangaroo Valley. Both of these towns are surrounded by lush, green landscapes.
Berry is a charming village comprised of many historical buildings and is known for its great local produce – much of which draws upon the surrounding rich, dairy country. Locals proudly describe Kangaroo Valley as the most ‘beautiful valley in Australia.’
However you choose to spend your time in Sussex Inlet, be it exploring the tidal canals, taking in the stunning beaches or soaking up the untouched wilderness of the national parks and marine park, you’ll be sure to love your holiday.
