You're probably well acquainted with the idea of farm-to-table dining. Now, it's time to get more of a taste of what the native Australian version looks like. Tweed Eco Cruises offers a hands-on food adventure through the mud crab-filled Terranora Lakes mangrove system, which is an ideal experience if you love crustacean.

Led by ​​Bundjalung Nation descendant Luther Cora, the tour teaches guests about First Nations hunting practices firsthand — yep, you will use bamboo spears to catch mud crabs, stingrays and fish, before enjoying the spoils cooked over a bonfire. The four-hour adventure continues with a boat ride through the oyster leases with plenty of freshly shucked snacks included, and concludes with a sumptuous seafood feast enjoyed with your fellow hunters.
