You’re probably well acquainted with the idea of farm-to-table dining. Now, it’s time to get more of a taste of what the native Australian version looks like. Tweed Eco Cruises offers a hands-on food adventure through the mud crab-filled Terranora Lakes mangrove system, which is an ideal experience if you love crustacean.
Led by Bundjalung Nation descendant Luther Cora, the tour teaches guests about First Nations hunting practices firsthand — yep, you will use bamboo spears to catch mud crabs, stingrays and fish, before enjoying the spoils cooked over a bonfire. The four-hour adventure continues with a boat ride through the oyster leases with plenty of freshly shucked snacks included, and concludes with a sumptuous seafood feast enjoyed with your fellow hunters.
