Huskisson to Vincentia Cycle Route
A great way to explore the beaches of Jervis Bay is by cycling on the shared pathway between Huskisson and Vincentia, along the south-western shore of Jervis Bay. Jervis Bay is known for its unspoilt, white sandy beaches and the glorious aqua tones of the bay. On this easy bike ride, you can experience seven beautiful Jervis Bay beaches in one scenic hit.

Our starting point was at White Sands Park at Huskisson. The park is very popular with everyone - families, children, personal trainers and tourists alike. The park features open space, BBQ's, seating, toilets, swings and a giant climbing frame, but possibly the best feature is the view of Jervis Bay. You can access Shark Net Beach via a path from the park.

The shared walkway / cycleway runs from White Sands Park behind the caravan park to Huskisson Beach. Behind the beach is a large reserve with picnic tables, toilets, a playground and climbing equipment.

The path runs to Moona Moona Creek Reserve where there is a small section of road to navigate. Moona Moona Creek is a picturesque spot and for me was one of the highlights of this ride.

At the Moona Moona Creek reserve, you will find picnic shelters, BBQ's, toilets and a small playground. The creek itself is really pretty with crystal clear, shallow water and it is a popular spot for stand up paddle boarders and for families with young children enjoying the shallow water. There is also access to Moona Moona Beach from the reserve.

The cycle path continues past the reserve and over the road bridge to Vincentia. Follow the path to Ilfracombe Ave. The path runs alongside the three-kilometre stretch of Collingwood Beach.

Towards the southern end of the beach Ilfracombe Ave ends but the path continues behind the houses.

I enjoyed this section of the path riding beside pretty little garden areas and bushland. We stopped at the southern end of the beach before the metal bridge for some morning tea and a paddle in the water. You could not ask for a prettier spot and this part of the beach was also quite protected from the wind.

After crossing the bridge at the end of Collingwood Beach you will pass by some toilets and the Holden Street boat ramp. The next beach you will come across is Orion beach. There is a new section of pathway (completed in August 2016) suspended high up above the beach.

From the path, you can see spectacular glimpses of the secluded beach and the aqua hues of the water through the trees. At various intervals there are stairs down to the beach if you want a closer look.

We continued on the path towards Plantation Point Park. This large reserve features open grassed areas, a boat ramp, children's playground, fitness equipment, picnic tables, BBQ's, toilet facilities and open showers as well as access to Jervis Bay. From Plantation Point Park you can access the sheltered Barfleur Beach on the bay and on the southern side of the point is Nelsons Beach which is more exposed. The weathered sandstone cliffs around Plantation Point are quite dramatic.
