“Callala Beach-daggy but nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I have holidayed in Jervis Bay on the South Coast of NSW for many years. It is a remarkably beautiful spot. The area has an abundance of beaches, coves and inlets and many times through the year you can find yourself alone on a stunning windswept beach. Callala Beach is only one of many beaches in the area. It has a small village atmosphere full of holiday houses and is attached to Callala Bay and Myola (on the river) which provides easy access for boating and some great fishing. Callala has a holiday van park which is always full in the school holiday season and there is a small number of holiday rentals. It has a daggy local RSL club still stuck in the 1980s that offers reasonable club food and a small shopping centre at Callala Bay. There are areas that have been put aside as a Marine park. It is not uncommon to see large pods of dolphins, ferry penguins and the occasional whales passing through just by sitting on the beach. The sea is a beauitful tourquise colour with powdery white sand, near the shore the water on calm days is a transparent simmering green where it it is easy to see the sea life swimming by. Callala Beach is surrounded bv national park and it is not uncommom to see the wildlife such as kangaroos bouncing along the gulf course. There is an abundance of birds , gallahs, black cockatoos, beautiful coloured parrots that can make an amazing racket. However all this being said it is an amazing calm and tranquil spot on earth.

“Magnificent beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

How brilliant are the beaches here? They seem to stretch forever. We have stayed in cabins on the other side of the estuary from Sussex Inlet several times, with wonderful fishing, walks, and wildlife. The beach is several kilometres long, and took a day for a slow stroll along it's length and back. The St. George's Basin lagoon abuts the Park on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other.

“Waters lovely”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

and the sands are of a pristine environment. BUT the bush is the bush and not exactly exciting though I do love native plants having an interest in them due to having worked at the Bot Gardens.
