Merv the World's Largest Oyster
The Merimbula Oyster Festival Monument
Gary W. Selman
The Merimbula Oyster Festival Monument commemorates not only oyster farming and the Oyster Festivals held in recognition of that important local industry, but also commemorates an important era in the local history of Merimbula on the far south coast of New South Wales, Australia.
Unfortunately, the monument’s function of enabling us to always recall and remember the past, and events associated with it, is hampered by the absence of a record of those events.
It is hoped that this account of the tortuous history of Merv the World’s Largest Oyster, and the Oyster Festivals the monument commemorates, will arrest the diminishing contribution that the monument would otherwise have made.
If you love local and community history,
then you'll love
