Welcome to the home of Australian oysters. Grown in Australia’s secluded inlets and wide open bays, Australian oysters are the ultimate food experience! Meet some of Australia’s growers, learn how oysters are grown and watch how to open your own.

Most oyster species change sex during their life. An adult female oyster releases between 20 to 40 million eggs and a male, hundreds of millions of sperm at spawning. Larvae settle on a hard surface to mature. Commercial production relies on relocating settled larvae (spat) to various culturing methods.

Oysters are not fed or treated with any chemicals throughout their lifetime in the water or after harvest. In their lifetime they will be graded and culled a number of times.
