The Amazing ‘Scottish Rocks’ at Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay

We walked down from our campsite at Green Patch Beach in the Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay just for a quick look.

We’d not long arrived, and after spending a glorious few days discovering Hyams beach and the beaches of the Huskisson area, we were excited to see what else this amazing bay on the South Coast had to offer.

Just when we thought we saw it all. This was just as spectacular, if not better. Made even more so by the lack of crowds and pristine natural environment.

It reminded me a lot of the stunning Hazards Beach on the Freycinet Peninsula in Tasmania.

We took a few photos and then decided to hop up on the rocks at the right-hand end of the beach for a better angle.

We walked a little further around, and then a little further and so engrossed we were in our exploration before we knew it we were discovering a place called Scottish Rocks.

These amazing rock formations hugged the cliff and jutted out into the bay. We couldn’t believe our eyes. Craig kept saying “how amazing is this place, this is as good as you would see anywhere in Australia”.

Further around we discovered new coves and inlets, learning how salt forms from the pools that were collecting on the rocks, and having a memorable family moment.

The girls had a ball. I adored watching them interact and Kalyra taking on the responsibility of teaching Savannah how to scramble over the rocks safely.

  1. Hi,

    We are planning a trip up thought SA and then up though the middle and would love some one to recommend places to see and stay. We are planning on camping with two kids. Leaving mid 2014.


  2. Really beautiful photos! I love how the texture of the clouds almost matches those of the rocks!

    Would love to know what kind of lenses/filters (if any) you use! 🙂

  3. We ended up in Jerbis Bay by accident. It has to be one of the best places we have ever seen. But we cannot find any info on the curious rock formation at the mouth of the river.
