Booderee National Park

Important COVID-19 update

Booderee National Park has re-opened for day visitors from the Shoalhaven LGA only. Camping at Booderee National Park will recommence from 1 November 2021 with bookings now open.

There are no restrictions on making a camping booking and from 1 November we anticipate being able to welcome campers from across NSW as travel restriction ease.

Please check COVID-19 restrictions in your areas relating to the Jervis Bay Territory before planning a trip or making a booking to stay at Booderee National Park.

You’ll see lots of native animals at Booderee, from sharing the shores with seals, to catching a glimpse of a swamp wallaby while out walking. Whale-watching is one of our most popular activities – head to the Cape St George Lighthouse for the best view.

Follow these handy hints to increase your chances of seeing Booderee’s abundant wildlife (while keeping yourself safe):

  • Early morning and sunset are good times to see wildlife.
  • Use a torch to look for nocturnal animals at night. Be careful not to shine strong spotlights onto sleeping birds.
  • Look for clues showing where animals have been, especially tracks, droppings and scratchings.
  • Animals are often heard before they are seen. Walk quietly, listen and watch for movement.
  • Use binoculars to get a closer look.
  • Look out for animals crossing roads, including lizards and snakes.
  • Do not approach, disturb or feed wildlife.
