Oyster farmers will be on hand to offer festival-goers freshly shucked oysters from a number of estuaries along the coast, as well as running the annual oyster shucking competition.Local oyster farmers have banded together under a new name, ‘Sapphire Coast Wilderness Oysters’, and will be a big part of the Eden Whale Festival on Saturday, November 1.
Sapphire Coast Wilderness Oysters represents oysters farmers from the four major oyster producing estuaries in the Bega Valley Shire – Wonboyn Lake, Pambula, Merimbula and Wapengo.
