Narooma Oyster Festival
Friday 05 May 2023 to Sunday 07 May 2023
A favourite on the New South Wales food and beverage calendar, Narooma Oyster Festival celebrates the Rock Oyster on the shores of Wagonga Inlet on the first weekend in May.
A complex, delicious and luxurious seafood, Rock Oysters are native to New South Wales estuaries. When paired with wholesome produce, great drops and opportunities to dive deeper into the world of oysters - it creates a festival that people return to year after year.
Join growers, chefs and shuckers to celebrate this brilliant bi-valve in cosmopolitan food experiences and great entertainment. About 70,000 rock oysters are quaffed here each year!
Discover the merrior of NSW estuaries in Oyster Farmers Alley cheer on the shuckers in Australia's Oyster Shucking Championships and see how big an oyster can grow in Australia's Biggest Oyster.
Learn from top chefs in the Cooking Demonstrations and fill your larder with South Coast produce from the markets. Catch Martin Bosley (Yellow Brick Road, New Zealand), Kahn Danis (Bermagui
Further exploration (at a more sedate pace) is to be had in the Ultimate Oyster Experiences, hosted by Australia's leading oyster authority John Susman, or a Champagne Oyster Cruise on the inlet.
