WHO WE ARE

 

ABOUT US

Australia’s Oyster Coast is an innovative Australian company and an internationally recognised brand. Our heart and soul is in the oyster industry, with our shareholders including over 45 of Australia’s leading oyster growers who operate across 13 estuaries all along the unspoilt East Coast of New South Wales. Australia’s Oyster Coast is unique as it produces three varieties of premium oysters, including the Rock oyster, the rare Angasi ‘flat oyster’ and the popular Pacific oyster. These oysters are grown under rigorous environmental management systems in some of the world’s cleanest waters by passionate growers with

generations of experience. 

 

The growers of Australia’s Oyster Coast produce premium oyster species for sale to select partner outlets and high-end restaurants across Australia. The company and it’s growers place a particular emphasis on the native species of oysters, namely the Rock Oyster, which is fast becoming favoured by foodies due to it’s complex flavour profile and wide ranging seasonality. Our Australia’s Oyster Coast Trail extends for over 1200 kilometres along some of Australia’s most beautiful coastline. The Trail allows visitors to taste the distinctive and exceptional flavours of our world-class oysters, learn about oyster cultivation from our growers, and experience the natural beauty of Australia’s Oyster Coast first-hand.
