Enjoy the best tastes of Eden in this half day tour as you eat your way around an Oyster tour and taste your way around a Brewery. Begin your day with a scenic transfer from Eden to your first stop, Wheelers Oysters. Here, the rich heritage of Wheeler's Oyster Farm, one of the pioneering oyster farms on the Sapphire Coast, in combination with the premium hospitality of the Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar, makes it a neighbourhood gem and 'the' location for distinctive Sapphire Coast dining. During your tour you will discover the complete oyster story with a tour of their state-of-the-art factory and video showing the complete history of oyster farming and the life cycle of oysters. At the end of the farm tour you will be hosted in the Oyster Bar for a cocktail style tasting of Japanese, Shanghai, Kilpatrick and Natural Oysters paired with a glass of regional white wine.
Next, it is on to Longstocking Brewery to try some locally brewed beers. Tucked away in the beautiful surrounds of Oaklands in Pambula, this little brewery is big on brewing ales, lagers and ciders that have unique and distinctive flavours, retaining the integrity of traditional beer styles. Here you will have a tour of the brewery to see where the magic is done before it's time to sit down, relax and work your way through a tasting paddle of 4 local beers, cider and ginger beer, along with some local cheeses to complement them.
Before you return to your ship, enjoy some free time to explore some of the boutique art and craft shops in the complex.
