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.

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.
