The Cove offers self-catering accommodation, is reached after a 13 kilometre drive through the rainforests of Booderee (Jervis Bay) National Park and aims to provide guests with a rare escape from the stresses of modern life.

The sound of the ocean replaces the noise of traffic; native wildlife abounds as kangaroos hop through the grounds and colourful parrots skim through trees; the backdrop is forest, not buildings.

While The Cove can be used as a base to explore the historic surrounding districts, its relaxed atmosphere and tranquil beachfront location surrounded by Booderee National Park lead most guests to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of swimming, bushwalking, boating, reading, and, in the evening, meeting fellow guests at the central barbecue facilities.

Put simply, it's just relaxing! All within an easy drive and on our very own private beach - pure bliss.

The Cove is Advanced Ecotourism Certified. What is ECO Certification?


ECO Certification is a world first. It has been developed by industry for industry, addressing the need to identify genuine nature tourism and ecotourism products in Australia. Nature tourism and ecotourism experiences offer stimulating insights into Australia's natural areas, leaving minimal impacts afterwards. Choosing a product that displays one of the three ECO certification logos means you will enjoy an experience with a quality operator. The three certification levels provide experiences ranging from:

Nature Tourism: Tourism in a natural area that leaves minimal impact on the environment.

Ecotourism:  Tourism in a natural area that offers interesting ways to learn about the environment with an operator that uses resources wisely, contributes to the conservation of the environment and helps local communities.

Advanced Ecotourism: Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism products, providing an opportunity to learn about the environment with an operator who is committed to achieving best practice when using resources wisely, contributing to the conservation of the environment, and helping local communities.
