The township’s name of Huskisson comes from William Huskisson, who was Colonial Secretary between 1827 and 1829. Because of its location, Huskisson’s past and present revolves around the sea, shipping and tourism. From the 1860s, Huskisson was a favoured place for shipping, and the shipbuilding industry started to flourish, using local spotted gum for sailing vessels and pine for steamers.
Enjoy a bistro lunch at the historic Husky Pub in the centre of Huskisson. And yes Huskisson became Australia’s first mainland coastal plastic bag free town in 2003.
The Jervis Bay Marine Park aims to conserve marine biological diversity and marine habitats, while catering for a broad range of recreational and commercial activities. The Marine park and Booderee National Park attract visitors from all over the world year round.
