Besides being a fabulously fun day out for the whole family, the Oyster and Seafood Festival is a day to celebrate the history of the land on which the Sandstone Point Hotel is built. Way back when in 1875 James Clark operated a very successful Oyster Farm out of the Pumicestone Passage.

During its peak period in the 1900's, James Clark owned more than thirty dredging sections and provided employment to more than twenty-five local families - a concept quite unique to the time.

Now totally refurbished and restored, the Oyster Shed and jetty have been operating since 2015 on the Sandstone Point Hotel waterfront, serving fish and chips every day of the week, whilst honouring its colourful past.
