Paperbark Camp 5★ - Jervis Bay
Welcome to Paperbark Camp – the original Australian luxe camping experience
Nestled amongst soaring eucalypts on 80 acres just a few kilometres upstream from the white sandy beaches of beautiful Jervis Bay, the camp retains its intimate feel with just twelve safari style tents. Built above the ground on timber platforms that assist the cooling sea breezes and provide a beautiful view of the bush, each tent features polished timber hardwood flooring, solar powered lighting, luxury cotton linen, private open-air ensuite with shower (some with freestanding bath too!) and outdoor seating or lounge area for relaxing to the sounds of the bush.
Conceived over a few sundowners on safari in Africa in the eighties, Paperbark Camp officially opened in 1999 after years of dreaming and planning by the owners, Jeremy & Irena Hutchings.
With the help of their family and a dedicated team of staff, the camp remains a family operated business and continues to be at the forefront of ecotourism and luxury camping in Australia.

Deluxe Plus Safari Tent
King Deluxe Safari Tent
The Deluxe Plus safari tent is the perfect bush retreat for a romantic getaway with its comfy king size bed, day lounges for curling up on and bush bath with a view, this is not your typical tent!

Recently redesigned to reflect the owners new found love affair with everything North African, the King Deluxe is the largest tent and the ultimate romantic getaway amongst the gum trees.
Jervis Bay itself is a nature lovers paradise, and canoes and bikes are provided for guests to explore the local waterways and coastal villages. From the nearby town of Huskisson boats depart regularly on dolphin and whale watching cruises as well as dive and snorkeling trips. A guided sea kayak is a wonderful way of experiencing the bay, or take a picnic and explore the many coves and beaches along the White Sands Walk which eventually take you to Hyams Beach, considered to have the whitest sand in the world.
The award winning Booderee National Park is also a must-see and includes the Botanic gardens, Greenpatch and Murrays Beach where you are sure to see kangaroos, colourful parrots and other native Australian wildlife as well as beautifully pristine coastal landscapes.
