South Coast Flavours

There are many great food combinations- burgers and chips, bacon and eggs, peanut butter and honey…and right up there are donuts and coffee! And making some of the best donuts on the south coast, and beyond, are Espresso Boy Donuts. These hand-crafted donuts, made fresh daily, feature a light sourdough, and are the creation of owner-operator Craig Mitchell. The flavours are ever-changing and include classic cinnamon, The Simpson, Boston Creme, Apple Pie and more. And to compliment your donuts, Espresso Boy Donuts have partnered with Mocopan Coffee, one of Australia’s biggest coffee roasters, based in Melbourne.

Just up the road- in Nowra Hill- another group of passionate locals are hard at work in the making of hand-crafted and award- winning gin! The Tara Distillery is the very first craft distillery in the Shoalhaven region. Husband and wife- Alarna and Ben- mix their award-winning gin, as well as whisky, vodka and limoncello, on-site using traditional copper stills. The gin also features a range of local and native botanicals, most notable the sea lettuce which is foraged by Alarna and Ben, off the rocks at Culburra Beach. Visitors to Tara Distillery can enjoy tours and tastings, and sample the true ‘spirit of the Shoalhaven’.

For a perfect mix of Shoalhavens’s stunning natural environment, and the finers things in life- these guys have the balance just right!
