I live locally and love this park. If visiting as a tourist, a car permit is $11 for 48hrs. Be warned: It's policed by rangers. Camping is best pre-booked and Christmas holiday period is via "lottery". There's a tourist information center as you enter the park.. Stop in for extra info. The beaches are great, surrounded by bush. Cave Beach... More

You need to pay a fee to enter but worth it. The sceneries are amazing and there is a lot to do, such as picture areas, walking paths and beaches.

Nice place to unwind and get back to nature. The signage makes it easy to find your way around. Wear good walking shoes if doing the Bush walks. Take food as not a lot of option to buy. The park entry fee is affordable.

If you're in Jervis Bay, then Booderee is a must visit spot. Our favorite places there were Green Patch beach, Murrays beach and Cave beach. Green Patch is as stunning as Hyams beach, the most famous beach in the region, with turquoise waters and white sand. We had the opportunity to see kangaroos there, wild ones walking and relaxing on... More

If you have limited time make sure you visit Murray Beach!!' Quiet/clear blue sea/hidden gem!! Went there on a hot day.. Around 3pm... Were so lucky to get a place under the shade of trees.. It's a 300m walk from the car park but Seriously..Best beach ever.. You might think you are in paradise.. !!!

Some family friends camped here across several sites with a range of different aged children. Literally everyone loved it. The location has kangaroos, parrots and various other bush land creatures, who due to a history of guests feeding ( you shouldn't) are quite bold but still amazing. The beach is perfect. Extremely safe for children and a great place to... More

We had a great day at the National Park. It costs $11 entry per car and that is valid for 48 hours. With a map, you can find so many little gems along the way, beautiful secluded beaches, camping grounds and a historical lighthouse.

Distances are short but a car is needed. Gladly paid the fee to see almost empty beaches and to take walks. Whiten two days we had time to visit 4 beaches, botanical garden and took couple of the walks but also turned back twice because of the snakes (red belly black snakes). There were also different birds, frogs, kangaroos &... More

Such a beautiful place to visit and so many great beaches to see. Scottish rocks is quite quiet and I think unofficially nude! Murrays beach is just gorgeous as is green patch. Beaches are easily accessible through short walks (couple of hundred metres) through the bush, pristine water and sand. Loads of flys wherever we went, aero guard didn't make... More

While at a Jervis Bay, we visited the Booderee National park and in particular, the Botanical Gardens. This is half owned and run by Aboriginal administration. It is an off shoot of the Canberra Botanical Gardens. A truly lovely place, peaceful, pretty, with a variety of walks and vegetation.,a highlight was the Illawarra flame tree.
