Huskisson or ‘Husky’ is the jewel of the NSW South Coast, nestled amongst some of the whitest sand beaches in the world.
Known to fitness enthusiasts for one of the biggest triathlon festivals in the southern hemisphere, the Husky Tri, this particular ocean swim event is a part of the sister event, the Little Husky.
The ocean swims take place in the majestic Jervis Bay, featuring incredible turquoise waters and the 500m, 1km, 2.5km and 5km distances on offer cover the more casual of swimmers to those that like to take it a little more seriously.
Visit the famous Hyams Beach (home of the world’s whitest sand) and get your lips around a beer at the local brewery or the Husky Pub.
There are two different types of courses on offer; the 500m is around-the-buoys and the 1km, 2km and 5km are point-to-point swims.
The 500m swim starts and finishes at the beach at White Sands.
The 1km swim starts at Huskisson Beach and finishes at the beach at White Sands.
The 2km swim starts at Sailors Grave Beach and finishes at the beach at White Sands.
The 5km swim starts at the Vincentia Sailing Club and finishes at the beach at White Sands.
If you’re after more beach time, or simply to get the ‘Insta-worthy’ photo, head to Hyams Beach which is home to the world’s whitest sand. When you’re finished there, jump back in the car and take a drive through the Booderee National Park where you’ll find some gem walks and beaches to complete your active day.
If you’re after more of a celebration, try out the Jervis Bay Brewing Co. or Flamin Galah brewing Co. which are located just north of the town.
Huskisson is 3-hours drive south from Sydney.
Parking is available on the street around Whitesands Park.
