Heritage Estates

Voluntary Heritage Estates Land Project grows Jervis Bay National Park

All three levels of government have come together with the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife to protect an area known as Heritage Estates. The high-conservation-value land of Heritage Estates is at Worrowing Heights between Vincentia and Erowal Bay, in the Shoalhaven region on the south coast of New South Wales. Heritage Estates is a 180 hectare “paper” subdivision of approximately 1,200 lots. The project will enable the purchase of as many lots within Heritage Estates as possible for inclusion into Jervis Bay National Park for permanent protection.
