Sanctuary Point
Yachts, surf skis, rowboats, canoes, windsurfers, and aluminium runabouts can be hired. There are two ramps: the first for light craft and around the corner, an all-purpose ramp. While in the area you can take the 40-minute Basin Walk which runs from Palm Beach Reserve in a westerly direction around a small promontory to Paradise Beach Reserve.

Natural Environment

Several parks surround the area: Booderee National Park , Jervis Bay National Park and Jervis Bay Marine Park with their crystal-clear waters and white sand beaches; snorkelling, diving, surfing , bushwalks,  cliffs with caves and dolphins.

History
The area was formerly occupied by the Dhurga Aborigines who called the lake 'Bherwherree'. Its European title was chosen in June 1828 by Thomas Florance who undertook an extensive survey of the district. Florance's name was presumably shaped by Cape St George which was named by Captain Cook. The Wool Road runs off the Princess Highway highway through Basin View, St Georges Basin and Sanctuary Point and on to Vincentia. This track was originally cut by convicts at the behest of Governor Gipps in order to establish a route from Braidwood to an ocean port for the wool that was earning good money in the early 1840s. It departs the highway just north of Bewong, or you can access it by driving south from Tomerong.

On the eastern shore of the lagoon is Erowal Bay Township. The name derives from the property of 'Errowel'. One of the first in the area it was granted to Captain John Lamb in 1830 or 1835, depending on which source you believe. There is a concrete boat ramp on Naval Parade, an extension of Erowal Bay Road.
