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.
Jervis Bay & Shoalhaven Food and Wine
Jervis Bay and the Shoalhaven have some excellent restaurants to tempt the palate. 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. Just down the road at South on Albany is an unpretentious, on-point menu where local ingredients are the star. Cupitt’s Vineyard Kitchen in Milton serves pan-fried snapper straight off the fishing boats in Ulladulla, and in the nearby town of Mollymook you can dine on quality local seafood from the internationally-influenced menu of the famed Rick Stein at Bannisters.
Alexander Berry planted the first vines in the Shoalhaven at Coolangatta Estate on the slopes of Mt Coolangatta, and the area is now a thriving wine region with 16 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, Cuppitt's and Two Figs, and be sure to savour a glass or two of chambourcin, the region’s most distinctive grape. On the June long weekend each year, the region celebrates the harvest with music, food and of course wine at the Shoalhaven Coast Winter Wine Festival.
For some of the best local produce, visit South Coast Providores’, who have an excellent range of relishes, chutneys and conserves. Nowra Fresh is the largest supplier of local fish and meat on the South Coast. Good local bakeries include Flour Water and Salt in Milton, the Milkwood Bakery and Berry Sourdough Cafe, both in Berry. Also in Berry, indulge in gourmet treats at Pompadour Chocolates, visit Il Locale for gelato and coffee, and The Berry Tea Shop for hand blended teas.
The Shoalhaven is also the gateway to Australia's Oyster Coast, encompassing eight major oyster-producing estuaries located between the Shoalhaven and Crookhaven Rivers. Greenwell Point is home to many of Shoalhaven's oyster farms, such as Jim Wild’s, 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.
