Paperbark camp is located 2 hrs drive (190km) south of Sydney in Jervis Bay which is part of the Shoalhaven region. The Shoalhaven has a wealth of natural treasures but the bay area is the jewel in its crown with its calm, clear waters, amazing white sand beaches and pristine coastal bush landscapes. The area boasts three national parks, The Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay National Park and Jervis Bay Marine Park which together include many kilometres of walking trails and deserted beaches as well as providing sanctuary to a wide variety of wildlife and underwater creatures.
Paperbark camp is 4km from the small holiday town of Huskisson on the shores of the bay where the Currambene Creek meets the bay. Also around the bay are Vincentia, Hyams Beach and Jervis Bay Village which is in the Booderee National Park.
The bay and its extensive surrounding area, covers 16km from North to South and 10km from East to West. Having a car is therefore useful for exploring the area and is certainly the easiest way of travelling to the bay. However we do encourage guests to consider alternative modes of transport. The train from Central station Sydney to Bomaderry(Nowra) is particularly scenic and we are happy to arrange a transfer to the camp after which guests are able to explore the area by bike, canoe or by an escorted tour.
