The beaches on the inside of Jervis Bay rightfully receive a lot of attention, but there’s a lot to love about the beaches on the outer northern and southern peninsulas of the bay. Five Mile Beach (officially known as Bherwerre Beach) stretches along the land connecting the Sussex Inlet and Jervis Bay and is only accessible via a bushwalk west from the Cave Beach campground. It runs all the way to Sussex Inlet and is well know for collecting all the angry swells a southerly low can throw at it.
I took this photograph at the start of the summer of 2011, as the sun was setting behind Pigeon House Mountain. I positioned myself on the rocks at the eastern end of the beach and shot with my wide angle 10mm lens to capture as much of the scene as I could in one single exposure.
