Amazing experience!

Originally booked for the shucking experience and to eat oysters but really enjoyed the entire tour. Actually eating the oysters ended up just being the cherry on top.

Sheridan is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to growing oysters and the different types… she explains the entire farming process as well as how to tell which farming method was used, water conditions, etc solely from how the shell developed. It was all a lot more interesting than I thought it would be and we learned a lot.

The oysters were delicious - some of the best I’ve had (and I go to places solely for oysters at least once a month)…Also, I would have liked to ship the homemade vinaigrette home. It. Was. Amazing.

FYI- If you’re coming from Sydney, you cannot Uber (we learned this last minute and about had to cancel but thankfully Sheridan quickly replied with instructions) - you need to take a train to the Hawkesbury River Station (is a direct, hour long ride from central station, $5 a person). If you contact them ahead of time, they’ll pick you up from this dock instead of the one listed in the pick up section (she graciously did for us). If you are unable to contact them in time, water taxis are available. The ride btwn the docks is about 5 minutes.
We absolutely loved it! Do it!

Get picked up in a flat boat by a knowledgeable, sweet family farmer and learn all about their oyster farm history and practices. Then put on weighters and wade out to your individual tables with more oysters and prawns than you can eat, and champagne to boot! We love supporting small businesses with integrity - this one is the first to do this kind of tour - give them your love! Do this - you won't regret it!
