Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
Oh shucks, it's not just oysters
Shucks, oyster lovers rejoice!
Shucks, it's time for oyster lovers to rejoice! The 2019 Oyster Festival is about to hit our shores on Saturday 19 October at the Sandstone Point Hotel and is promising waves upon waves of delectable treats from the deep.
A bit of historical background - way back when in 1875, the land that the Sandstone Point Hotel presently stands on, used to be a fully-functioning oyster farm, operated by James Clark! During its peak in the 1900's, James Clark owned more than thirty dredging sections and employed more than twenty-five local families, which was very unusual for the time.
Oyster Shed serves up divine seafood delicacies all year round
As an accolade to its colourful past, the Sandstone Point Hotel's renovated open-air dining area, the Oyster Shed is fully operational all year round, serving up delicious oyster and seafood delicacies to its discerning guests.
Go with the flow of seafood lovers and head over to the picturesque Pumicestone Passage shores for, what is promising to be a fabulous family day out at The Oyster Festival, to experience an assortment of oysters from all over Australia. Fishing trawlers set up 'shop' at the Sandstone Point jetty, offering the freshest ocean delights to visitors that money can buy.
A very special visit from Pinkfong's viral Baby Shark who will be performing not one, but two live shows! You know that tune that once it's in your head, it never goes away?! Yep, that's the one 'doo, doo, doo, doo, doo'!
The Oyster Festival has a General Admission entry price that's as cheap as chips too:
