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.


"Lovely in every way"

We booked for one night as part of a weekend away from Sydney. After a day on a motorbike, we were very tired and ready for a hot shower. Rob welcomed us with open arms, instantly making us feel at home. He helped us with dinner recommendations and local sites.

"Great find"

Set in a delightful location next to very good seafood eateries and near a charming jetty, this place was a delightful surprise. Clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff and a bottle of wine in the fridge!

"“A night in paradise”"

What a lovely place Greenwell Point is! Very peaceful with stunning views over the water within seconds of this accomodation. (Nice view from room also) The host could not have been more pleasant or helpful, and was willing to do anything to ensure we had a good stay. The choice of eateries in winter seem limited so we knocked something up in our room, using the adequate kitchenete facilities. Very comfortable room and a very enjoyable stay.

"“Relaxing and ideal for the weekend getaway”"

I have stayed at the Anchor Bay twice now, it is convenient and away from suburbia of Nowra and is right on the water at Greenwell Point. The rooms are always tidy, smelling fresh with very clean linen and blankets (I liked the low setting on the electric blanket - just enough for my aching back) and the coffee tea facilities well appointed. It is a must to walk along the walkway from the jetty to the end and back before breakfast. The fresh sea breeze and brisk walk does you the world of good. The manager is always polite, courteous and ever helpful with our needs. The jetty and boat ramp are great for pictures and looking back on Coolongata Mountain at Shoalhaven. The free picnic BBQ and tables are an added bonus across the road with a great Fish & Chip shop on the corner. We will be back again, for sure.

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.
