The Karuah Oyster and Timber Festival is a fun-filled day including car displays, live performances and entertainment, markets and food stalls with a children’s activity tent.
Love oysters? well you can compete in the annual oyster eating competition. Close to 180 people went into the draw for the competition last year. In heats of five people, competitors down a dozen oysters. The person with the fastest time goes into the final where they eat two dozen oysters. The person with the fastest time wins.
Another big aspect of the festival is the woodchopping. More than 30 people took part in the woodchopping last year.
There will also be the great Karuah River Duck Race. Sponsor a duck and at a certain time during the day about 300 ducks are tipped off the Karuah Bridge. The first numbered duck to float across the finish line about 200 meters down the river wins.
