The Eurobodalla is a region in NSW that stretches from South Durras as far south as Tilba Tilba. It is a stunning region, with rich and varied landscapes. And one type of creature that thrives in the pristine and varied waters around these parts — a mix of fresh and salt — is the oyster!
If you’re keen to explore oyster country on the Clyde River Estuary System, just hook up with local tour company Region X and founder Josh Waterson. Josh runs a variety of nature-based tours out of Batemans Bay. He offers half and full-day kayak tours, hiking, yoga and wellness options that focus on the Eurobodalla region and all it has to offer.
The Oyster Tasting kayak tour is a fascinating tour for those who want to learn more about the harvesting and processing of the local oysters. You’ll enjoy a scenic kayak on the Clyde River Estuary and swing by oyster farms and processing sheds, all whilst Josh provides detailed information about the life cycle of a Clyde River oyster and explains why the oysters in this region are considered some of the best in the world.
You’ll also visit the Oyster Shed on Wray St, where you’ll meet and learn more from fourth-generation oyster farmer, Jade Norris. Jade and her husband run the oyster shed, selling a mix of both Sydney Rock and Pacific oysters. And the best part of this tour? You’ll get to enjoy plenty of the Clyde River’s famous oysters!
