An authentic bush retreat in the untouched Jervis Bay, and on the edge of three National Parks, Paperbark Camp is the perfect antidote to city life.
Accommodation is comprised of 12 safari-style canvas tents, all raised off the ground. All have wrap around verandas and ensuite bathrooms that are outside as well as in, and the deluxe tents have freestanding baths with great views.
The 'Gunyah', meaning meeting place in aboriginal, houses the restaurant, which is again raised off the ground so guests can enjoy the breeze and the position in the tree tops. In the summer, dine al fresco on the terrace and watch the resident possums at play and in the winter, curl up next to the open fire.
Located in the bush, there are walking trails aplenty and the scenery is spectacular. Walk through the paperbark, gum and mangrove forests, and at night grab a torch and look out for possums and other nocturnal animals. There are also complimentary bikes and canoes, massages upon request, and the white sand beaches of Jervis Bay in Booderee National Park are close by.
Why we love it
A great way to see the scenery is by canoe. We recommend the Paperbark challenge, which involves canoeing to Huskisson and back, with a picnic and swim stop en route.
