Five Great Walks Near Jervis Bay

Pigeon House Mountain

Where: Morton National Park
Time: 3 hours
Distance: 6km
Grade: Grade 4 (some bushwalking experience is recommended)
Highlights: Incredible panoramic views of the ocean, rare Pigeon House Ash eucalyptus, cliffs and gorges and lyrebirds.

One of the best walks in Morton National Park, Pigeon House Mountain is steep in parts but it is definitely worth the effort. National Parks & Wildlife recommends you choose a dry day to walk as you’ll enjoy better views and minimise any risk when you get to the ladder section near the summit.

White Sands Walk

Where: Greenfield Beach, Vincentia, Jervis Bay
Time: 90 minutes
Distance: 2.5km
Grade: Grade 3 (Suitable for most ages and fitness levels)
Highlights: Stunning white sand beaches, magnificent views across Jervis Bay, kangaroos and other native animals

By far the most popular walk in Jervis Bay, you’ll need to set off early in the holiday season as the track can get busy. It’s an easy walk with spectacular views across Jervis Bay plus you can stop at any of four white sand beaches for a swim. There are bbq facilities, picnic areas and toilets at Greenfield Beach and Blenheim Beach.

Munyunga Waraga Dhugan: Murray’s Beach Walk

Where: Booderee National Park
Time: 2.5 hours
Distance: 5.4km
Grade: Grade 2 (No bushwalking experience necessary)
Highlights: Panoramic views of Jervis Bay, 14 signs outlining the culture and history of the area, Governor Head (look out for dolphins and whales), sea birds.

This trail is relatively flat and is suitable for all ages. Take plenty of sunscreen and water as you may spend longer than you had planned reading about the park’s natural and cultural history. Park in the Murrays Beach carpark.


Gosangs Tunnel

Where: Currarong
Time: 1.5 hours
Distance: 4.8km
Grade: Grade 3 (Suitable for most ages and fitness levels but you will need to be able to crawl through a 10m tunnel).
Highlights: Lobster Bay, Mermaids Inlet, remote beaches and Aboriginal cultural heritage.

The dramatic views from the top of these sea cliffs are some of the most incredible we’ve ever seen. During whale season it’s fun to pack a picnic and rest while you look out for whales passing by on their annual migration. At less than a metre high Gosangs tunnel can be tricky to negotiate and is not suitable for young children.

Grotto Walk

Where: Nowra
Time: 1-2 hours
Distance: 2.6km
Grade: Grade 2 (No bushwalking experience is required but here are some steep sections)
Highlights: views of the Shoalhaven River and cliff top lookouts.

Located just outside of the Nowra, this short walk is suitable for all ages. It’s such a peaceful spot you’ll find yourself wondering how you can be so close to the town centre. There are plenty of picnic spots, so you can spend as much or as little time on the walk as you want.
