Booderee National Park

Booderee National Park is located in the Jervis Bay Territory of Australia.

What is now the national park was declared as a nature reserve in 1971. In 1992, Jervis Bay National Park was declared.

In 1995, the park was transferred to the Wreck Bay Aboriginal community, which leases the area back to the Australian Department of the Environment and Heritage. At this time, the name of the park was changed to “Booderee”. The name, meaning 'bay of plenty' or 'plenty of fish' in the Dhurga language, was chosen by the local Aboriginal community.

Within the Park, there are pristine beaches declared to have the whitest sand in the world, a penguin colony and unique abundant flora and fauna.
