Get Shucked Oyster Farm
Great Bay on Bruny Island is a place you drive through rather than a destination in itself, but there’s one good reason to stop. Oysters. The roadside van at Get Shucked farm sells fantastically fresh Pacific oysters. Wolf them down there and then, straight from the box with a squeeze of lemon, or keep your precious cargo somewhere cool until later in the day to have with a glass of chilled wine or ale. They sell to some of Australia’s best restaurants – and it’s not hard to see why – but they also keep a good supply at this unlikely outlet for islanders and tourists. And what better place to enjoy them than on their native island.
