25 Things To Do In Jervis Bay With Kids

25 Things To Do Jervis Bay Winter, spring, summer, autumn, there’s always heaps to do with the family down at Jervis Bay, just three hours south of Sydney.

If you’re heading down to Jervis Bay, here’s my collection of great places to visit with kids. I’m not saying this is my absolutely definitive list… but it’s what I’ve detailed here on the blog so far… there are many other top spots and I’ll be putting more ideas up this summer.

Our family spends a lot of time down at Jervis Bay because we’ve got a beach house down there at Vincentia. Too lucky.

There’s SO much to do around Jervis Bay with the kids… even if it rains… so grab a cuppa, sit yourself down and have a look through these posts for some Jervis bay family holiday inspiration.

  1. I have been waiting for this post!! I want to take my mum and dad there these holidays. We’ve never been before and I can’t wait – heard so many good things about it xx

    • Seana Smith says:

      It is such a lovely spot, really it is… and we’re zooming down there next Tuesday for a few days – hooray!! I must write up the White Sands Walk I did and add it to this list. Good thing aboyt this post is that I can add to it as I go along and just change the 21 to 22 then 25 and so on. The caravan park called White Sands has good cabins and is in a terrific spot for young children, and there are also heaps of good houses to rent. Our house is totally booked for all school hols – by friends and ourselves or I’d suggest it.

  2. Hi Seana,

    It looks like an amazing spot – do you ever get tempted to just stay there forever?!

  3. Hi Seana, we moved down here 3 years ago from Sydney because we fell in love with the place. So we bought ‘Greville Corner Cafe and Store’ in Sanctuary Point, right next to Palm Beach. I know your post was about Jervis Bay, but here on the Basin we’re kissing cousins! I just wanted to let you know that we are super family friendly, with plenty of space for prams and kids, with a big menu offering burgers and the like plus our Quality Toddler meals like Beef & Vege Lasagne and Grilled Chicken with Rice Pilaf. We are by the beach, there are 2 kids playgrounds in walking distance, plus we are at the starting point of a section of the beautiful basin walk. Come and visit us next time! Cheers, Sophie & Ian Clayton

    • Seana Smith says:

      Yes, I will. I hardly know the Basin and we’re long overdue an good explore over your way. Thanks so much fior getting in touch.

  4. Hi Seana
    I’ve loved reading all your articles on Jervis Bay. We are hoping to head down there for the first time later this year with our 19 month old. She loves her swimming lessons so I’m sure she would love Moona Moona Creek.
    Do you have any reccommendations for what time of year is best if we want to spend a lot of time in the water?
    Thanks Jenny

    • Seana Smith says:

      Hello, yes I’d say anytime from October to Easter is generally warm… summer can be very hot, but there’s always water to cool you down. Even in winter we do splash and swim on sunny days… but very quickly. It’s a great spot for kids, lots of family-friendly cafes too down there.
