Seahorse Inn and Oysters


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. Today head to Wheelers Oyster Farm to discover the complete oyster story with a tour of their state-of-the-art factory and video showing the complete history of oyster farming and the life cycle of oysters. Of course you'll get to taste some oysters on completion of the tour. Next, travel onwards to the historic Seahorse Inn in Boydtown. Construction of Boydtown began in 1843 when the newly arrived Scottish entrepreneur Benjamin Boyd proposed to base his Steamship Company at Twofold Bay. The first building erected in Boydtown was the "Seahorse Inn", named after one of Boyd's steam-boats. The hotel was built with convict labour and never fully finished. Today, enjoy a delicious high tea with an array of sweet and savoury offerings held in the historic cocktail lounge. The Seahorse Inn boasts a lovely manicured garden looking out over Twofold bay.
