Husskison NSW

Huskisson is a town in New South Wales, Australia in the City of Shoalhaven. It is located shores of Jervis Bay, 24 km south-east of Nowra. We have stayed here twice and will go back again. There is a variety of accomodation, the trendy fisherman’s huts located right on the waterfront have no public access, which allows guests peace and privacy. We hired sea kayaks and paddled right to our accomodations private jetty.

A boardwalk offers a stroll through the mangrove swamp. It is so pretty and tidal. We walked through both at high and low tide and it was beautiful.

Quite by accident, we discovered a crystal clear idyllic beach hidden from the town centre. A rather comfortable looking camping ground was right at beach side. Fabulous for families.

Lots of great walks not too far away.

We recommend the local Thai restaurant for a tasty and very reasonably priced dinner…or two…or three if you are there for a while. The bottle shop down the road sells chocolate when all the other shops in town are closed!

I had to mention the coffee stop we made on the drive home in Gundagai. Never having wandered through the town, we were so glad we took the time. The Murrumbidgee River was in flood and flowing high and strong.

The old timber bridge was quite lovely in its weathered decay. Take the time to stop in town and check it out, much nicer than the ugly roadside eateries.
