Jacobs Bay Scenic Reserve


Boat access only

Enjoy short walks and water based activities at this campsite which is sheltered from the prevailing north west winds. Good for sea-kayaking.


  • Slips on Jacobs Bay – Fairy Bay Track

    There are two slips on Fairy Bay Track making it very narrow. They are passable with extreme care. There is a steep drop off to the sea from these slips.

    There is also a large windfall blocking the track near the start at Fairy Bay.
