The 2019 June long weekend is fast approaching and there’s no better way to spend it than in beautiful Jervis Bay. Only a short drive from both Sydney and Canberra (just over 2 hours in both cases), Jervis Bay feels like a world away. There’s so much to see and do – white sand beaches, whale watching, wineries, shops, cafes and restaurants – or you can do nothing at all. And with an extra day off work, you can enjoy a full 48 hours in Jervis Bay.
