Around-Oz: Living the Dream!

Evans Head Fish Co-op
Fantastic Cheap Prawns
Extra Tasty & Extra Fresh!!

This is a really good co-op with realistic pricing. We paid only $19.00 a KG for medium king prawns - later that day on the Gold Coast we saw them at $29.00!! Doesn't the picture below just make your mouth water?? The rolls by the way came fresh from the wonderful Evans Head Bakery.


Don't be mislead by the very ordinary looking premises - they only sell fresh seafood and there are none of those dreadful "fishy smells" and everything is kept on ice made on the premises.


The setting is most picturesque. Imagine "working" all day looking at the view below left! This is immediately in front of the co-op. The chap fishing is also right in front of the co-op. Earlier in the morning we saw at least a dozen elderly residents all fishing from this spot.


The co-op is at the top of the fisherman's harbour. Just head south after passing through the main Evans Head shopping centre, cross over the bridge and turn left. It is easy to spot the blue co-op sign. A lovely spot just up the road for lunch is Shark Beach - see the story here. The picture of the prawn rolls was taken there. If nothing else we get our food priorities right!

Absolutely recommended
