As we continue on our Make Some memories Convoy for Charity, we are arrive at the beautiful Jervis Bay. From the crystal blue waters and resident dolphins to splendid beaches, this coastal paradise in the Shoalhaven region will delight you with many memorable experiences. We set out to discover the spectacular views from Point Perpendicular Lighthouse on the northern tip and from Cape St George Lighthouse on the southern side.
Our home for the next few nights was the Jervis Bay Holiday Park. This wonderful unspoilt, privately owned park is set on the crystal clear waterway accessing Jervis Bay. A unique feature of the park is it’s own private boat ramp and brand new floating Pontoon, a perfect spot to launch your boat. Accomodation ranges from glamping safari tents to deluxe waterfront spa villas. This was the perfect park to set up a chair and just enjoy the water.
Our first stop in Jervis bay was Jervis Bay Maritime Museum, which features a world renowned collection of maritime artefacts and navigational and surveying instruments. The Museum exhibits a range of nautical equipment, models, photographs, paintings, drawings and objects relating to the history and heritage of the Jervis Bay area. Our convoyers had a ball stepping back in time.
On our way back from the Museum we stoped by the town to do our town fundraising. The people of Jervis Bay were really excited to donate to such a great cause. When we got back to the park the Dyson children held a cooking demonstration for everyone with all their Golden Circle products.
On our second day in Jervis Bay some of the convoyers went whale watching with Jervis Bay Wild. Our convoyers got to witness the tall cliffs of Point Perpendicular, the natural lagoon of Honey Bay and some amazing wildlife, such as dolphins and Humpback Whales. While some of our convoyers were off on the boat, the rest of our convoyers were off having another kind of water adventure, they were at the Jamberoo Theme Park, an adventure water park with, this was a massive treat for the Dyson Children.
When every one got back we held our Defibs R Us charity challenge. This charity challenge was an exciting one. We were lucky enough to have the holiday park lend us some of their pedal carts, so we decided to have a race around the park. It was Bruce Gow and Kat Dyson on one team and Peter May and Ash Dyson on the other team, it was a close race but Bruce and Kat won by an inch.
After the charity challenge Ron and Di Sinclair gave me a tour of their caravan, the Lotus Freelander. This off-road van was “absolute luxury” said Di. The Freelander is jam-packed with absolutely everything you need to start living the Australian dream, with a stylish modern interior and a robust exterior. Ron was very quick to tell me “this van has been amazing through the trip, everything we have needed and its a dream to pack up and down”. For more information on the lotus Freelander, click Here!
Before we knew it, it was time for Happy Hour. Prousty had taken charge of this happy hour as he had his children come down from Sydney to join in. The entire park came down to enjoy some music, laughs and win some great prizes donated from Camec, Caravan RV Camping, Award RV, Maywest caravans, Golden Circle, clearview, Trojan Parts and De Fibs R Us.
The next morning the convoyers, cast and crew packed up and began their journey to our next and final stop, Kiama.
