Pittwater

Pittwater

 

Tucked away in a peaceful bay behind Five Mile Beach in Tasmania's south east, the Pittwater catchment is well-established, growing the first Pacific Oysters in Australia in 1946.

 

Region Characteristics

Oysters from Pittwater have their annual spawning earlier than other oyster farms in Tasmania and normally peak in condition between August and January. Good numbers of non-spawning triploid oysters have also been sown down, enabling production year-round.

Tasting Notes

Oysters from our Pittwater farm have a saltier flavour and are well known for the shape and consistency through the batches.

THE TASMANIAN STORY

It isn’t easy here. It never has been. People said it was impossible, and for too long we believed it. This is why, for Tasmanians, good enough is never good enough. We work harder, we follow our obsessions, we support one another, and we protect what makes this place different.

Being Tasmanian is the quiet pursuit of the extraordinary.
