Aye aye, captain! If you love seafood, this one's for you. Head to glorious Port Stephens in August to celebrate a month of the tastiest food in the tunaverse. The coastal region is renowned for its sensational seafood, from blue swimmer and mud crabs to sweet prawns and plump oysters, and throughout the month of August it'll be celebrating the best fresh fare the area has to offer.
With an array of activities, there will be something for everyone at Love Seafood. If you're serious about your crustacean consumption, attend the gala dinner at Broughton's on D'Albora Marina come August 4. Here, you can enjoy a selection of seafood while overlooking the sparkling waters of Port Stephens.
If you're looking for a more casual approach, the Love Seafood Weekend Celebration — running from August 18–19 — is your best bet. Attend plenty of seafood tastings and masterclasses, watch oyster shucking competitions and get hands-on experiences with our heroic farmers of the sea (aka oyster harvesters).
While a lot of these events will take place around D'Albora Marina, you can taste the best of the region's fish, oysters and shellfish at signature dinners and enjoy fish-to-dish lunch specials at a host of venues across town. There's no need to be koi or to mullet over – put Love Seafood in your diaries now.
