Located between on the spectacular coast road between Bermagui and Tathra (approximately 400km south of Sydney), Wapengo Lake is one of the most pristine estuaries in NSW. The pure waters that flow into the lake are filtered by the surrounding Mimosa Rocks National Park, state forests and salt marshes.
Native rock oysters have grown here for thousands of years and have been farmed since the late 1880s. Wapengo usually has a large tidal exchange, allowing farmers to harvest directly from the lake. Award-winning oysters from Wapengo offer a rich taste experience that hints of minerals, salt and delicate creaminess.
With a commitment to long-term sustainability and ecosystem protection, Wapengo oyster growers are modernising their growing techniques. Today, Wapengo is home to Australia’s first certified organic rock oyster farm.
