Shoalhaven Heads to Huskisson/Vincentia

Richard has cousins who have retired to Vincentia so we booked in to the Holiday Haven at Huskisson Beach as this was the closest park to our cousins house.

It was a short drive from Shoalhaven Heads into Bomaderry where we stopped at the hardware store to exchange a gas bottle. It had run out the night before.

We drove on through Nowra where major roadworks were going on for the construction of a new bridge across the Shoalhaven River. This will help reduce the serious bottleneck in traffic flow through Nowra.

We called in to the huge Bunnings store for a couple of things before taking the turn off to Huskisson. Huskisson has a busy Main Street with lots of eateries. The Jervis Bay Club sits in prime position with fabulous views across the river and beach below.

As we drove through Huskisson we took notice of where the caravan park we were booked into was. It is situated right on the beachfront. There are two Holiday Haven parks in Huskisson.

Huskisson merges in to Vincentia where we had no trouble finding our cousin’s new place. What an amazing view they have across the bay. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch outside on the deck and, as we were the guests, we got to sit facing the view. Just perfect!

At the rear of their property is a shared pathway that runs from Huskisson all the way through Vincentia. In the afternoon we went for a walk and down the stairs to the beach below. The sand is so white and the water is so blue. As it is a big bay the waves were only gentle little ones. Perfect for swimming, not so great if you want to surf though. Away in the distance you could see Point Perpendicular which sits on the northern side of the entrance to Jervis Bay.

The four of us managed to talk the afternoon away before it was time to go and set up camp at the caravan park. We had been emailed the entry instructions so we didn’t even have to go in to reception. It didn’t take long before we were all set up for the next 3 days.

Our cousin collected us later so we could join them at their home for pizza, wine and more talk.
