With its pristine beaches that showcase stunning blue waters and golden sands along with a laid-back lifestyle, historic towns and lush National Parks, the far South Coast has always managed to draw a crowd.
But now there is another reason why people are flocking to the region and that is for the fast-emerging foodie scene.
The reason it is becoming so popular as a dining destination is because of the fresh local produce and seafood that comes straight from the paddock and sea onto your plate.
With its unpolluted water, there is an abundance of marine life providing plenty of fresh seafood for restaurants and cafes to place on their menus.
Among the selection are prawns, blackfish, flathead, bream, lobster, abalone, Eden mussels and of course freshly shucked oysters.
This part of the world is dubbed Australia’s Oyster Coast and you can buy incredibly fresh and good value oysters direct from many of the growers.
So if casual dining is your style, pack a picnic or sit on the beach with a glass of wine and enjoy some freshly shucked oysters.
Of course the fresh regional produce is far more diverse than seafood and includes organic beef, cheeses, chutneys, farm fresh eggs, vegetables, fruits, olives, herbs and local wines.
There really is something for everyone with hip new venues, amazing coffee, cafes with spectacular views, delightful take-away joints and fine dining establishments.
The region contains some of the best-kept secrets with a wave of savvy entrepreneurs and vibrant restaurants which can be discovered on wharves, by oyster farms or in historic cottages.
These eateries put their spin on the local delights and create a spectacular culinary experience for both locals and visitors alike.
One thing is for certain - dining in the far South Coast will tantalise your tastebuds and have you returning for more.
Come and experience the delicious local produce and let the region’s cafes and restaurants show you how real food is prepared and served.
