Spend a week in Jervis bay, experiencing the world’s whitest beaches, camp under the stars, visit waterfalls, experience local culture and give back to bushfire-affected areas. Mix up the paddle boarding and BBQs with meaningful restoration activities for those most in need.
Today you will make your way to a central Sydney location where you will meet your Infuse Leaders who will be with you for the duration of your trip. Once everyone has arrived, we will pack the van and head for Jervis Bay, a 2.5-hour drive away. Along the drive, you will get your first glimpse of the pristine beaches before a secret stop for a swim under crystal clear waterfalls. Then onto camp to settle in and get to know the others in your group. Your leaders will go through an orientation chat and explain the week ahead. Get ready for an epic week!
These few days will be spent lending a helping hand to meet the community’s needs at the time. Your days may consist of working with Bushcare teams to rejuvenate natural habitats for the millions of displaced animals that resulted from the 2019/2020 bushfires, tree planting in national parks, helping in a local wildlife refuge or assisting a local animal shelter that looks after domestic pets that families have placed there after losing their homes to the fires. Your afternoons will then be free to explore the local areas. A few highlights of the area include waterfall hikes, ocean caves, afternoon swims and strolling through local towns.
A well-earned beach day to rest and recover after busy days giving back to the community. The white-sand beaches of the area boast turquoise waters and dolphins. Spend the morning swimming, dolphin spotting and playing beach games before trying the famous Husky Meat Pie for lunch. In the afternoon enjoy a cultural tour with a twist. You will stand up paddle board while you learn about the ecosystems most valued by the Indigenous people of Jervis Bay. If the day couldn’t get any better, your evening will consist of a sunset lagoon pizza party as the group discusses their highlights from the week.
Reaching the end of your trip, we will pack up and make the 2.5-hour trip back to Sydney. You will farewell your new friends and Infuse leaders leaving with big smiles and a week full of unforgettable memories. Hopefully, the South Coast now has a special place in your heart!
