OUR FAMOUS PRAWNS
They are the best flavoured prawn you can find, and we are not the only ones who think so. If you are here during the Christmas holidays make sure you book your prawns in advance or you could miss out. There are a number of places to satisfy your desire for crusteaceans including the Clarence River Fishermans Co-operative on the Yamba Road, Sarika Seafood at the Marina or Watos on Coldstream Street.
Many of the local restaurants will be happy to serve you with delectable dishes featuring our sweet and succulent prawns, so just browse below to plan your holiday dining.
