Description Booderee National Park is located at Jervis Bay on the South Coast of New South Wales between Nowra and Ulladulla. The park is about three hours drive from Sydney or Canberra. With its unspoiled beaches and abundant flora and fauna, the park, located just three hours from the cities of Sydney and Canberra, is extremely popular with tourists. The Cape St George Lighthouse ruin is considered the most significant European heritage site in the park and was listed on the Register of the National Estate in 1981. Booderee is home to the people of Wreck Bay who have cared for the land and waters of the Jervis Bay area for many generations. The people of the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community are proud of this association -passing on their special knowledge and ancestral and creation stories to their families. Booderee, in the Dhurga language of the region, means 'bay of plenty'. It is the name chosen by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community for the former Jervis Bay National Park and Jervis Bay Botanic Gardens following the handback of the area to the Aboriginal traditional owners. Booderee National Park offers three camping areas. All campsites are unpowered. It is advisable to book campsites in advance as camping is very popular during peak periods.
