Currumbene Creek


Jervis Bay is a sanctuary for fishos (amatuer or pro), with plenty of water to throw in a line. If it’s deep sea fishing you’re after Simos Afloat is your catch. 

The boat ramp at Wollamia is a short drive away to launch the boat down Currumbene Creek. Or if you want to get closer to the headlands, try Murrays Beach.

Caves Beach Booderee


Its a pretty special day for Husky locals when the waves pick up on the door step of the Hotel,  but it doesnt happen very often! Nearby south facing Caves Beach in Boooderee National Park generally gets some nice waves or a short trip around the corner to Culburra is home to surfing champ siblings – The Wrights.
