Green Patch, Jervis Bay
"Green Patch in Jervis Bay - A beach that belongs in a movie!"
This has to be in my top 3 of all the Australian Beaches.
The Palm trees that rustle in the wind behind blinding white sand and aqua-marine waters - it took my breath away.
How To Get To Green Patch
Jervis Bay is approximately 3 hours drive from Sydney along the coastal road that links Melbourne to Sydney. For this reason alone, it attracts locals and tourists alike.
Jervis Bay and this beach is actually in the Booderee National Park but there are in fact two entrances to the beach.
If you want to avoid paying the 48 hour National Park charge then you can take the first entrance to the beach. This area tends to be more crowded as the travellers try to avoid extra costs.
But pay the money and go through the National Park and fairly quickly you'll see the sign to the beach on your left.
You can actually camp here in the shade of the trees (no warm showers though!) and the carpark leads you along a wooden path right to the beach.
Why Visit This Australian Beach?
You'll be blown away by its white sand and turquoise waters.
What's more, the National Park has lots more beaches for you to explore - this just happens to be, in my opinion, the best.
This is a great place to come for a few days. If camping isn't your thing then stay in either Huskisson or Vincentia where you'll find plenty of B&B's and holiday homes to rent.
Here you will also find a few shops, cafes and restaurants to kick back and recharge your batteries. A perfect place for a long weekend or even a week.
Come in the summer - the water is surprisingly cold in these parts and therefore too cold out of season.
