One of the Shoalhaven’s secrets – Beecroft Peninsula May 2, 2017

One of the Shoalhaven’s secrets – Beecroft Peninsula

One of the best kept secrets in the Shoalhaven is the Beecroft Peninsula.  Beecroft Peninsula forms the northern entrance to Jervis Bay.  The Peninsula is owned by the Department of Defence, but as a general rule of thumb is open for public access on the weekends and school holidays.  The Peninsula has spectacular sea cliffs, scenic locations, beaches, bush walks and wildlife.  Point Perpendicular is a destination for rock climbers, but for those not inclined to hang off the side of a cliff, gives great views over Jervis Bay and whale spotting opportunities from shore.  The beaches have the stunning white sand that Jervis Bay is famous for, but without the crowds that some of the other beaches have.  You’ve also got great opportunities for bush walking and bird watching throughout the Peninsula.  One of the favourites is Honeymoon Bay (pictured right), but other great beaches include Long Beach and Target Beach.  If you are looking at fishing, check the details as it is part of the Jervis Bay Marine Park.  The entry to the Beecroft Peninsula is near Currarong and about 20 minutes from the Anchor Bay Motel.  To get more information on the Peninsula check out Beecroft Weapons Range and Peninsula, and or BOOK NOW to explore the Peninsula on a weekend get-away.

 


"Anchor Bay Motel"

Excellent service. Rob greeted us on arrival and provided a good overview of sights to see. Comfortable room. Great location opposite the water and boat launching. Cafe and pub nearby. A lot of interesting sights nearby.

Anchor Bay Motel

"Peaceful and immaculate"

This is a very quiet and friendly village, and Anchor Bay Motel is comfortable and welcoming. The views across the water are wonderful, with pelicans galore on the jetty across the road. It's about 10 mins to Nowra, and 30 mins to Huskisson where most of the tourist action is centred.

"Good value, relaxing, friendly"

On a three week holiday through NSW, the Anchor Bay Motel was the best value accommodation encountered in this price range on the whole trip. I stayed 3 nights. The room was bright, clean, and fresh, with natural light from two directions, and had an inviting verandah to sit outside.

"Lovely View"

We had a quick overnight stay here while attending a wedding. The hosts are very welcoming and happy to recommend places to eat etc. the room was very clean and had a lively view of the wharf where the fishing boats come in. It was also very quiet. Be aware that some of the rooms are only accessed via stairs so if this is a problem for you make sure to ask for a downstairs room. All in all a lovely stay and I would definitely return.

"Always a pleasure staying here"

Third stay here and always a pleasure. It is by no means a Shangri-La but the motel is very clean, beds comfortable and a small kitchenette very useful. Rob was fantastic and helpful even upgrading my aged mother in laws room that was more user friendly for an older person. No hesitation recommending this motel in a this lovely peaceful...
