Silver Muse, ‘small’ cruise ship of Silversea cruises. This ship was selling tickets for a cruise that included Jervis Bay in January 2024
News Bulletin - cruise ship proposal in Jervis Bay update, 27 March 2022
Port Authority ruled out expanding cruise industry into Jervis Bay
Whilst this is encouraging news it certainly is not surety that Jervis Bay won’t be used as a cruise ship port.  Indeed, the Port Authority indicated in the same letter that they support the preparation of a cruise ship policy in marine parks. This would essentially give permission for cruise ships to come into Jervis Bay.
Approval for cruise ships is written into the draft marine park management plan and until it is removed from this plan we cannot rest.
If you’d like to refresh your memory around what our concerns are then take a look at some of the submissions regarding the draft Marine Park Management Plan, which can be found here.
We currently have a paper Parliamentary petition (requiring 10,000 signatures) underway. Shelley Hancock has agreed to present to Parliament.
Last count over 5000 signatures
  • and this online petition (which will have a greater reach, increases awareness and can supplement the online petition)
    A member of the Husky Woollamia Community Voice has set up an online petition for us to share. This is not a parliamentary petition – so people can sign both our paper petition (very important)

    The minutes from the meeting where the Port Authority met with the Jervis Bay Marine Park Advisory Committee are now available. To see these minutes go to:
    We have written to the new State ministers but so far have not received a response other than ‘your email has been received’.
    We met with Fiona Phillips MP, member for the Federal seat of Gilmore, who indicated support. She will write to the State ministers. 
    Watch out for a Meet the Candidates event at the JB Brewery for the upcoming election.
    We took the opportunity of speaking with the Huskisson Chamber of Commerce. They recently did a poll of their membership which indicated that 90% of local businesses did NOT support Jervis Bay being used as a cruise ship port.
