With the temporary nationwide closure of restaurants, bars and cafes and restrictions set to be in place for at least another few weeks, we're seeing more and more places — from pubs and pizza joints to cocktails bars and some of the country's top fine diners — offering new delivery services. So, there's really no need to go through iso living off cans of tuna and mi goreng. Plus, occasionally treating yourself is a surefire way to break up the daily at-home routine, which less face it, is getting pretty tedious by now. Whether you've had a small WFH win, it's your housemate's birthday or you just need a little luxury in your living room right now, it's worth celebrating them. And what better way to do so with some A-class oysters delivered straight to your door.

Mimosa Rock Oysters usually supplies its oysters to a bunch of Australia's top restaurants, including famed Sydney seafood spot Saint Peter. Now, as a means to support its farmers, the family-run distributor is supplying its top-quality molluscs to homes across Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra — at reduced prices, with free delivery.

Sourced from Wapengo Lake and Nelson Lagoon, both located in the stunning Mimosa Rocks National Park, these oysters are harvested wild and known for their complex taste, yet smooth, creamy texture. And as soon as tomorrow, you could be slurping them for as less than $2 a pop.

Currently, there are two sizes available: the Lil Ripper and The Boxer. The former are smaller in size and a minimum of three years old; The Boxer oysters are larger and aged between three-and-a-half to five years old. The minimum order is three dozen, which will set you back $58 and $72 respectively. If you're really wanting a feast, you can opt for ten dozen, which will save you up to 43 percent per dozen.

All oysters will arrive live and unshucked, so if you were in need of a shucking knife, you can also purchase one via its website. If stored properly — kept in the box and stored in a cool, well ventilated area between 10°C and 17°C, the Sydney rocks will keep for up to 14 days from harvest.

Delivery is free and is available across Sydney and Melbourne metro areas, as well as around Canberra. For regional NSW and Vic, you can make enquiry by emailing mimosarockoysters@gmail.com or calling 0408 130 718.
