Tuross Lake

Tuross Lake is located on the south-coast of NSW, 325km south of Sydney and a short drive from Batemans Bay. The upper part of this huge river basin is nestled within a rugged, mountainous and heavily forested region, before flowing down through low-lying floodplains in the lower catchment.

The Tuross Estuary, which is recognised for its ecological importance, is a haven for many protected and endangered wildlife species. Perched on a headland overlooking the twin lakes of Tuross and Coila, the picturesque Tuross coastal village is an idyllic hideaway that boasts abundant fishing, boating and recreational attractions.

Oysters grown in the extensive lake system are protected from the ocean. With a rich flavour and unique taste that has been described as soft and fresh, Tuross oysters are plucked fresh from the lake and can be sampled at scenic waterside cafes and restaurants.
