The West Coast (SA) town of Ceduna hosts Australia's largest oyster festival, the annual Oysterfest in Ceduna, on the SA Labour Day Long Weekend.
Ceduna is sure to be a funky town with Pseudo Echo performing over the weekend. Magicians, Comedians, Celebrity Chefs and a range of local acts will take to the stage. There will be a Seafood Cook-off, the Oyster Shucking Competition and Stein Holding Competition. Rides, attractions and music workshops for the kids. Look to the sky for 13x Australian Aerobatic Champion, Chris Sperou and the closing fireworks display. If it's all too exciting for you, sit back and relax on the Ceduna foreshore with a bounty of locally produced Oysters, a cold drink and enjoy the seaside atmosphere.
A range of other events will take place throughout the weekend and for those who wish to continue in the festive mood the Nullarborlinks Chasing the Sun golf festival tees off from Ceduna on 6th of October.
