If you're mad for molluscs, the ultimate harvest-and-dine adventure awaits you in the crisp waters of Tasmania's Coles Bay. Freycinet Marine Farm's guided Taste Experience is a hands-on homage to the humble oyster. Your bivalve-loving self (and perhaps a buddy) will don a pair of waders for an immersive tour of the oyster farm, and enjoy a lesson from the farmers on how they grow their prized crop.

The two-hour session also involves plenty of snacking on oysters freshly plucked from the water; a how-to session on mastering the art of shucking; and a feast of even more fresh oysters along with juicy steamed mussels and glass of local riesling.
