HYAMS BEACH

Get to know
the area

A dreamy beachside destination that graces many a postcard, Hyams Beach is a little slice of paradise on the South Coast of New South Wales. Beautifully positioned along the shores of Jervis Bay, this is where native bushland spills over onto white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Peaceful, quiet, and simply stunning, Hyams Beach is one good looking town.

Lifestyle

As one of Jervis Bay’s most photogenic beaches, Hyams Beach is a must-visit part of the region. Quiet, secluded and mesmerisingly pretty, Hyams Beach is a haven, not only for wildlife but for those who want the feeling of being away from it all. 

The town itself is small (meaning no shopping village), boasting several streets of towering gum trees and beachside abodes.

 The town’s one cafe – the popular Hyams Beach Store and Café – spins out an all-day menu, including the ever-popular fish n’ chips, which is a huge crowd-pleaser. But with Vincentia and Huskisson close at hand, locals are never left wanting.  

On land, Hyams Beach Trail and White Sands Walk takes you through beautiful bushland that is teeming with wildlife, and out to vantage points that soak up some incredible views. Booderee National Park is home to the regions whitest and most pristine beaches – Greenpatch and Murrays Beach, plus many hiking and bike trails that lead to lookouts, such as Cape St George Lighthouse (perfect for whale watching). 

Jervis Bay Marine Park is also at its doorstep with diving and snorkelling spots that will have you swimming amongst bottlenose dolphins and fur seals. And when in season, cruises and chartered boats ferry people out to view the majestic whales that go about their annual migration. 

Perfectly positioned in the Shoalhaven region, Hyams Beach is equal distance from Sydney and Canberra (two-and-a-half-hour drive either way). It is a popular summertime destination, but year-round, it’s a stunning haven away from it all.

BEACHES

Hyams Beach may be small, but its string of beaches is anything but. From the north of the town to the south, the beaches are bordered by national parkland, leaving you to feel worlds away from it all. The beaches here are picture-perfect – white sand and turquoise water, and there are plenty of rockpools to explore. 

JERVIS BAY MARINE PARK

Deep dive into Jervis Bay Marine Park, a wildlife sanctuary just off the coast of Hyams Beach. Kayak amongst the playful sea life, or swim with bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and little penguins. During the colder months, the annual migration of the humpback and southern right whales are a highlight. 

NATIONAL PARKS

With Jervis Bay National Park to one side and Booderee National Park to the other, Hyams Beach is a lush wilderness to be enjoyed year-round. Rich in wildlife (kangaroos, wallabies, rosellas, wombats and echidnas), the national parks offer a variety of walking trails, some that lead to stunning lookouts and others to hidden beaches that are pure paradise.
