After breakfast, we depart our motel at 9.00 am and enjoy a ½ hr town tour around Merimbula before making our way to Bega which is now well-known for its cheese. Bega Cheese is manufactured by The Bega Co-operative Society Limited which is one of the larger Australian cheese companies. Their products are exported around the world and distributed across Australia and are available in most supermarkets and general stores. Here you will taste the cheeses that placed this town on the map. We then travel to Cobargo. This area was settled in the late 1820s when graziers moved stock into the district. Here you will find the people of the town working at their craft in the way they did in the 1820’s. Now we head to the beautiful seaside township of Bermagui where you have 2 hours of free time for lunch (at your own expense) and time to walk the town. Now we head off to Tathra which is our last stop for the day before heading back to the motel.

Day 3: Merimbula – Eden – Merimbula – 9.00 am

After another great breakfast this morning we travel Twofold Bay and the township of Eden. Here we will visit the Killer Whale Museum name given to an orca by whalers in the port of Eden on the southeast coast of Australia. Old Tom measured 22 feet and weighed 6 tons. The skull measured 1.02 meters and the teeth measured about 5.31 inches. Old Tom was thought to be the leader of a pod of killer whales who helped the whalers by herding baleen whales into Twofold Bay. The killer whales would help kill the whales; in return, the whalers allowed the killer whales to eat the tongues and the lips of the baleen whales, an agreement known as the Law of the Tongue. During your lunch break is your chance to purchase Mussels from the wharf at your own expense as we give you free time in Eden for. After lunch we depart at 1.00 pm and head to one of the local oyster suppliers, since the settlement of Merimbula, oyster farming has played an important role in the town’s economy. Merimbula oysters have become famous throughout Australia and the world for their excellent quality and flavour, resulting in many awards for farmers. Oyster farming is Australia’s oldest form of aquaculture, but until now very little information has been available to the public about how oysters are formed. Wheelers Oyster Farm offers the opportunity to discover the complete oyster story with a tour of our state-of-the-art factory and our own video showing the complete history of oyster farming and the life cycle of oysters. After enjoying our oysters we head back to Merimbula were the rest of the afternoon is free, and you can enjoy a swim in the pool or the beach.
