Take a unique and authentic  tour of Pambula Lake and learn about the fascinating world of the oyster farmer.


Cruising the calm waters of the Pambula River estuary aboard an oversized oyster punt, guided by your captain, you get to shuck and taste an oyster.   Meanwhile you learn about oyster farming in the area along with history, modern farming techniques, ecology and biology.


There's nothing like tasting an oyster straight from the pristine waters of the lake and the scenic journey takes you past ancient aboriginal middens dotted along the  banks of the river.  You pass nesting sites of White bellied sea eagles and many other birds.

The 2 hour tour is highly rated on Trip Advisor for good reason.  The Captain makes a affable and knowledgeable host, this is a not-to-be missed experience on the Sapphire Coast.
