Food and Wine
Check out the region’s many local markets including the weekly Shoalhaven Heads Seafood & Produce Fair and the Berry Produce Market held twice monthly. The Kangaroo Valley Village Markets and Tomerong Markets are held on the second and third Saturday of each month respectively. Cupitt’s Winery also hosts a local growers market on the last Saturday of every month.
The Shoalhaven is the gateway to Australia's Oyster Coast. This encompasses eight major oyster-producing estuaries located between the Shoalhaven and Crookhaven Rivers. Greenwell Point is home to many of Shoalhaven's oyster farms where you can drop in and enjoy a fresh shucked oyster straight from the farm. The aim of the local growers is to ensure that the estuaries are among the most environmentally sustainable oyster-growing regions in the world. The local specialty is the Sydney Rock oyster, one of the few indigenous oysters still being farmed anywhere in the world. Though smaller, the Sydney Rock oyster is prized for its more intense and tangy flavor.
Alexander Berry planted the first vines at Coolangatta Estate on the slopes of Mt Coolangatta. The modern wine industry was established in the 1980s and today the regions wineries each have cellar doors, many of which combine rolling green countryside with ocean or rivers views. Enjoy the unspoilt natural beauty of the region at leading wineries including Cambewarra Estate, Coolangatta Estate, Cuppitt's and Two Figs.
The Shoalhaven also has some excellent restaurants to tempt the palate. Quality local seafood is the highlight of the menu at Rick Stein at Bannisters in Mollymook. At Hungry Duck in Berry, owner and chef, David Campbell, uses sustainable local seafood, pasture-fed local meat and herbs and vegetables from his own garden. At Coolangatta Estate you can enjoy a tasting plate made from local produce served with matching wines from the estate.
