Our Tents

Our canvas safari-style tents have been thoughtfully placed amongst the eucalyptus and paperbarks, built above the ground to give privacy and to capture the sea breeze.

  • As part of the #YilaHealingTrail taking place this spring in the Shoalhaven, we are excited to be welcoming Diego Bonetto, also known as ‘The Weedy One’ to Huskisson on Thursday 17th October for a foraging expedition on the rock platform, followed by lunch in the Gunyah.

Diego grew up in northern Italy, where it was still common practice to collect wild produce from the land. When he moved to Australia in the mid 90s he spent many years working in orchards and garden centres and realised that his knowledge was a rare practice in modern societies. He sensed in the people around him a longing to rekindle their untapped connection to nature, and since Covid this desire for nature connection has only increased.

It is Diego’s passion to tell the story of plants, to share his knowledge and to connect with others through mutual story telling.

Spending time with Diego in itself is a treat, he’s a wonderful storyteller, and has a deep appreciation for the natural world and our place in it, ” To tell the story of plants is my passion …I love to enable conversations around belonging, sustainability and agency, while eating food. The old stories and flavours offering an alternative for people to re-engage with their neighbourhoods and ecologies.”

He has recently released a book ‘EAT WEEDS’ – A Field Guide to Foraging  and was featured in an award winning short film (see below) , take a look and you’ll be swept up in his enthusiasm too!

Join us for a wonderful morning on the beach and rock platform at Huskisson, learning about the edible plants that inhabit the foreshore and tidal pools, before heading back to the Gunyah for a lunch and continued conversation and connection.

  • Yippee! You can almost see the smile on this gleeful whale breaching off Point Perpendicular, no wonder Jervis Bay was recently listed by @austtraveller among the 8 best whale watching locations in Australia! From now until early November (with a bit of a lull in August)  you can swim, dive, kayak and cruise to encounter these amazing creatures as they migrate up to QLD in winter and return south for the summer. #jervisbay #visitshoalhaven

  • ☀️Sun is shining this weekend.. and we have some last minute availability, jump online and book direct for best rates.
  • Wake up to the morning birdsong, enjoy tea in bed before heading up for a leisurely breakfast in our treetop Gunyah dining room. A great way to start a day of exploring beautiful Jervis Bay and the Shoalhaven region. 📷 @lolajarrige_
  • Pleased to say that the cleanup after a weekend of CRAZY high rainfall and super king tides is almost complete. We are looking forward to welcoming guests back to camp tomorrow, Wednesday 12th June and the Gunyah is also open for dinner and drinks Wed-Sat. 📷🙏🏼 @lolajarrige_
  • As we spend a rather anxious night wondering when the rain might stop and how high the water might rise, we remind ourselves that the sun will shine again, in fact on Saturday apparently ! 📷🙏🏼 @lolajarrige_ #jervisbay #visitshoalhaven #visitnsw #glampingnotcamping
  • These two cuties are part of a group of 19 that were released recently as part of the rewilding program at Booderee National Park that seeks to re-establish the Eastern Quoll and establish a strong population after they were wiped out in the 1920’s. Eastern quolls are adorable little marsupials that were once common along southeastern Australia, but died out in Booderee during the 1920s. They are the size of a small cat, have a bushy tail and are covered in white spots.
The new 80 hectare purpose-built wildlife enclosure is designed to protect the eastern quolls from predators, and help them re-establish a strong local population in Booderee National Park.
It will provide the best possible chance for the population to thrive while being monitored by staff and researchers.
The 1.8 metre high fence features custom-designed underwater ‘gates’ enabling the park’s long-necked turtles to swim under the fence and move freely in and out to nearby swamps.
The design demonstrates the innovative methods, tools and technology that are being used in Booderee National Park to protect priority threatened species.released into their new highly protected  The rewilding program at Booderee National Park seeks to re-establish the Eastern Quoll and establish a strong population after they were wiped out in the 1920’s.
