Not content with showing their love for strawberries once a year, Sandstone Point Hotel has another tasty trick up its sleeves: its annual Oyster Festival. Seafood lovers, prepare to be in your element. The fact that you'll be slurping down molluscs while you're on Bribie Island adds to the fun, of course.
Taking over the venue on Saturday, October 20, the day-long celebration of salty, slimy deliciousness will treat your tastebuds to oysters from all around the country, asking whether you can discern the difference. They'll be freshly shucked at the fest's oyster bars — and if you need something to snack on in-between, you can feast on the rest of the ocean's finest (and sip a few beverages) at an array of seafood and wine stalls.
Anyone that really, truly loves their oysters can also take part in the competitive portion of the day, because it wouldn't be a food festival without a contest. Chef demonstrations and live music are on the bill as well, alongside a cruisy day hanging out off the Brisbane mainland, with entry costing $5.
