Booderee National Park

Dolphins often frequent the prettiest bays, and Jervis Bay is no exception though it is more likely that they are drawn to the bountiful supply of fish. The national park protecting the south of the bay is called Booderee, a Dhurga word meaning ‘bay of plenty’. Cuttlefish and Port Jackson sharks visit in winter, and there are magnificent sites for snorkelling and diving. Boat cruises to view the resident dolphin pod run from Huskisson. Booderee National Park is home to an abundance of mammals, reptiles and 200 recorded bird species. In the coastal areas, watch for black-browed albatross gliding over the waves and white-bellied sea eagles.
