Kayak and Shuck, Pambula River

6. Kayak and Shuck, Pambula River

Combine two of the best experiences on Yuin Country, the far South Coast nsw, kayaking and oysters! Starting at the stunning Pambula River Mouth, surrounded by vibrant turquoise water and beautiful natural surroundings, this kayak tour is perfect for anyone, regardless of kayaking experience. Our expert kayak guide will be there to show you the ropes, and as you paddle up the river, they will point out some of the wildlife and natural features of the Beowa National Park. At Broadwater Oysters, an award-winning Sydney Rock Oyster farm, you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about oysters and how to shuck them. The team at Broadwater will discuss why oysters are so precious, how they grow, and how the flavours change with the seasons, as well as the best time for handling, storing, and opening (shucking) Sydney Rock Oysters. Not a fan of oysters? No problem! Let us know when you book, and we’ll substitute your oysters for a local cheese tasting platter. And if you want to purchase more oysters to take home, there’s plenty of room in our touring kayaks to store them for the paddle back.

South Coast Private Charter

7. South Coast Private Charter

On the full-day tour we’ll follow the Grand Pacific Drive to Stanwell Tops, over Sea Cliff Bridge and on past Wollongong to Kiama. There we visit the famous blowhole and enjoy a stroll through the high streets of this popular seaside town. From here we turn inland. Our drive will wind through dairy lands to the country village of Berry – a good lunch spot. From here we drive on through stands of temperate rainforest and descend into a place which feels sealed from time – the Kangaroo Valley. We pass through this little village – the main street lined with old fashioned bakeries, a welcoming country pub, and a variety of shops. Climbing out of the valley we’ll head for a view of the Fitzroy Falls in Morton National Park. Here, the Wides Meadow Creek tumbles a sheer 81 metres into the valley below. Lastly, we’ll make a quick stop in either one of the Southern Highland villages – such as Bowral – or a cool climate vineyard, if a spot of wine tasting sounds like just the thing to round out your day.

Fantastic cruise with a great crew! The area is beautiful and it is well worth seeing the cliffs and beaches from the open water. While we weren't able to do the whole tour route due to wind direction, the guides more than made up for it by spending more time in the areas we could go to - which lucky for us was the cliffs, which were incredible! Excellent value for money!

Was an excellent experience for my self and both my children and their grandmother. My fighter has Atxia Cp and getting on and off wasn’t an issue at all. The amazing things we go to see was lifetime experience for us all. The fact we got to go fact as well was so much fun for the kids as well

I really enjoyed the boat ride around Jervis bay. We spotted a dolphin and took in the amazing view, beaches and commentary by the crew members. Their is also a bar on board so sit back relax and enjoy. Like I did.

Really enjoyed 2hrs on the beautiful Hussinson harbour. Wasn’t planed but we were very happy to see the offer of harbour boat trips on on our day trip to Husky from Kiama. Money well spent.

Guide was funny and knowledgeable of areas, great experience would recommend
