The main reason to hang around Jervis Bay and Booderee National Park is to surf the all-time classic reefbreak Black Rock (aka Aussie Pipe, Wreck Bay or Summercloud Bay). It is one of the hollowest and most photogenic waves in Australia, breaking intensely over a shallow cunjevoi and urchin-infested bottom. As the land went back to its traditional owners in 1955, Pipeline is also the unofficial home of Indigenous surfing and the local surfers can be protective, especially when the crowd appears on S swells and NE seabreezes at mid tide.

It's highly consistent and absolutely always crowded.
