Booderee is jointly managed by the people of the Wreck Bay community. The area is a quiet paradise of pristine coastal bushland, wildlife and crystalline ocean.

More than 100 prehistoric Aboriginal sites have been recorded on the Bherwerre Peninsula, some probably dating back to the stabilisation of the sea level about 6,000 years ago.

Archaeological evidence at Lake Burrill about 30 kilometres south of Jervis Bay shows occupation dating back 20,000 years. At that time, the coastline would have been about 20 kilometres east of the present coast, and evidence of coastal Aboriginal communities would have been submerged as sea levels rose to the present level.
