Where Are Australia’s Best Oyster Farm Gates?

There’s nothing like slurping hyper-fresh oysters mere metres from where they were raised where you can take a trip to these farm gates and taste the difference. When it comes to Australian oysters, there are the two kinds: pacific and Sydney rock. Pacific oysters are prized for their sweet, creamy plumpness and they thrive in Tasmania and South Australia’s cooler waters. Sydney rock oysters are native to Australia and New Zealand and love temperate climates and they have a thick shell and a taut, briny flavour that puts them on equal footing with the world’s best. What do you think LiveTribers? Where are Australia’s best oyster farm gates?

    Coles Bay, Tasmania on the shores of Great Oyster Bay. There you'll find Freycinet Marine Farm that has some of the most succulent freshly harvested oysters in Australia.

    I love the Pambula oysters as well as the Coffin Bay oysters and I remember the oyster farmers in Tasmania saying that the best time for oysters was during winter as they are spawning during summer. Any oyster really are lovely.

    Coffin Bay oysters in South Australia!!!! During our camping trip around a lot of Australia, we found these to be the best. Normally i drown my oysters in lemon juice, but these didn't need anything as they were so fresh and we shucked them as we ate them.

    Oysters are far from any thought in my brain... The potential of aussie oyster farms is millions of dollars worldwide

    I had a similar experience as mid below ie going to the rocks of Redcliffe Pen in Qld. There is nothing like those fresh oysters IMO although as I grew up I grew less interested in oysters for some reason!

    Not a gate, but as a child my father took me to the rocks off Redcliffe Peninsula in Queensland. He would harvest the fresh ,oysters straight off the rocks, chucking and downing them as he went. Me I never acquired the taste for raw oysters but don't mind a Kilpatrick.

    I don't eat oysters myself. I think the best oysters would be in Tasmania because there is little pollution there,

    I have never visited an oyster farm gate and I do not know where the best ones are.

    I've never eaten oysters, so I'm not a good judge but reading all the posts I note that others are posting their favourite places, a wide and varied area, and great for all the oyster readers :)

    I'm not sure where the oyster gates are but when I was younger, along the hawkesbury river at different locations there were oyster farms as such and along the way.

    There are several great places in Tasmania ,but my all time favourite has to be the oyster farm on Bruny Island . Grown in the bay just across the road .The sweetest and plumpest oysters .

    Best place for Oysters is Ceduna, sitting on the foreshore eating them with lemon meters from where they were grown. Wonderful experience
