How to Get to Jervis Bay

Jervis Bay lies 200km south of Sydney along the South Coast of NSW, Australia. The easiest way to visit is by driving there.

From Sydney, it’s a very straightforward drive that takes just 2–3 hours. You’ll follow the M1 south down to Bomaderry, before picking up the A1 Jervis Bay Road. Follow this towards Huskisson, Vincentia and Booderee National Park.

Car Hire

If you don’t have your own car, you should hire one using Discover Cars. Personally, we use Discover Cars and highly recommend them for finding your ideal car hire at an affordable price. Booking online is super easy and the free cancellation policy is great.

To find out more about renting a car with Discover Cars, read our Discover Cars review and Discover Cars Insurance review.

If you want to break up the journey and make a longer trip itinerary out of heading down to Jervis Bay, then we recommend stopping at Killalea Regional Park and Kiama. You can find out more about a road trip from Sydney to Jervis Bay in the guide below.

Public Transport

If you don’t have your own vehicle and don’t want to hire one, then it’s possible to take public transport to Jervis Bay from Sydney. But, with a total journey time of just over five hours and three changes to get from Sydney to Jervis Bay, it’s not a quick trip. Still, if you’re planning to make a weekend trip or holiday out of Jervis Bay, then it’s certainly doable.

You’ll first take the train from Sydney to Kiama. At Kiama, you’ll take the bus to Bomaderry. Then, from Bomaderry, take the #103 bus to Hyams Beach or #102 bus to Huskisson. These two places make the most sense to head to as they’re popular hubs and the majority of cabins centre around these Jervis Bay locations.

You can check public transport options at TransportNSW.

So, all that’s left to say is, have a great trip!
