South Coast Leisure Times : Summer 15-2016
Nowra/Eastern Beaches Country to the coast Greenwell Point shells out the best in fresh The drive out to the coast from Nowra winds through spectacular rich, green farmlands with classic Australian farmhouses, barns and haysheds. Drivers might find themselves held up as a herd of contented cows lazily wander across the road on their way to the milking sheds. It’s about 20 minutes’ drive to the coastal villages of Greenwell Point, Culburra Beach, Callala Beach, Callala Bay, Currarong and Point Perpendicular (pictured). The Shoalhaven is renowned for its oysters, and in particular Greenwell Point is home to some of the world’s best. The local oyster industry is in the process of taking its high quality produce to the world and South Coast oyster farmers have begun to send their fare to Asia. Greenwell Point oysters are part of Australia’s Oyster Coast, along with other major estuaries between Shoalhaven and the Victorian border. The Australian Oyster Coast was launched at the Narooma Oyster Festival in 2013. World champion oyster opener of 1984 Jim Wild produces between 10 and 15,000 dozen oysters a year from his Greenwell Point base. He said it was a great thing for the industry, with consumers able to be confident they are buying fresh produce. “If they are coming to Greenwell Point or any of the oyster farming locations along the coast they will be able to get maps so they can visit the local farms and purchase fresh local produce,” he said. Mr Wild said the industry had been working towards environmentally sustainable practices over the past 25 years. “We have been changing how we do things, like moving away from tarred trays and batons to plastic and we have noticed it is paying huge dividends in our eco systems,” he said. “Farmers are noticing and reporting an increase in sea grass, which is fantastic, it’s good for the fish, baby prawns and crabs in the estuary, it gives them better food and protection.” Greenwell Point oysters are known as among the world’s best.
