Oyster Tasting

Only 45 minutes north of Sydney’s CBD, why not taste the locally grown oysters of New South Wales while basking in the stunning views of Spectacle Island.

Our oysters are sustainably grown right here on the sunny Central Coast of New South Wales. They are grown in the oceanic waterways of Broken Bay and Brisbane Water and are fast becoming a local (and not so local) seafood delicacy.

We grow two species of oysters; the already world-famous Sydney Rock Oysters known for their creamy flavour, richness and lasting sweetness, and the beautiful Akoya pearl oyster which has a unique flavour profile, texture and subtle sweetness.

Our Akoya pearl oysters are great to eat all year around due to our farming techniques which allow them to thrive and build up large energy reserves which act as a fatty layer of protection. This layer, made of glycogen, looks good to the eye and also means that our oysters look creamy on top. 

The Akoya oyster can be served not only raw, but cured, steamed, poached or fried. The delicate flavour, enhanced with natural saltiness, adds a wonderful complexity and depth to the overall dining experience. 

For those who can’t get enough, oysters by the dozen can be purchased on the day or can be preordered, subject to availability.
