We arrived very early for our impromptu trip to Empire Bay and decided to indulge in an early lunch from nearby Woy Woy Fishermens Wharf, the one stop fish co op for everything seafood under one roof. Offering a wide variety of produce caught locally and from distant Australian shores to support the Fishing industry. You can of course always bring a picnic or take advantage of the pick -up service offered by Davistown Rsl to grab a bite at the club. The RSL offers a variety of tasty meals and has a covered children's playground and outdoor seating where you can relax whilst the children play. They also have free activities and entertainment for kids on Sunday.
The ferry runs regular services from Woy Woy to Empire Bay via the picturesque little towns of Saratoga and Davistown. Tickets are reasonably price also adult return ticket $14 and concession/ child $7.80. This quaint and beautiful little boat ride will take approximately 30 mins one way. There are plenty of birds to spot for the avid bird watchers such as pelicans, Sea eagles, herons, cormorant and other migratory species.
The waterways traveled by the ferry also house numerous oyster leases (Sydney rock) which you can sample if you haven't already from the local fish mongers on the peninsula.
We disembarked at Empire Bay and head to the corner store for ice-cream then to the little café next door for hot beverages. With ice-cream and coffee in hand, we head back to the waters edge for a leisurely stroll pass the rows of houses and Empire Bay Marina.
