Booderee National Park
In 1995 parts of the Jervis Bay National Park were granted to the Aboriginal peoples and this land was redesignated Booderee National Park and Booderee Botanic Gardens. (Neither should be confused with Budderoo National Park in NSW).
They occupy 403 hectares of the southern headland which forms Jervis Bay and are jointly managed by the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community and the Commonwealth (which is central government not the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service). The botanic gardens are a relatively small area within the park and were formerly known as the Jervis Bay Botanical Gardens.
The town of Jervis Bay and HMAS Creswell, a Department of Defence Naval base, are enclosed by the park and sections of the land granted are Aboriginal Community land. Bowen Island (at the entrance to the bay) is part of the park but there is no public access.
