Sydney Oyster Week 2019
A new ten-day celebration of oysters heads to Darling Harbour.
It's not like we need any real excuse to enjoy a lavish seafood feast, but a new celebration of ocean-fresh eats provides some extra encouragement. The inaugural Sydney Oyster Week descends on Darling Harbour from September 20 to 30, and is promising mollusc madness aplenty.
Restaurants throughout the precinct will be dishing up special deals on oysters, wine and more from 5–7pm every day. At The Port, you'll score Sydney rock oysters for $1 a pop, with $10 glasses of Mumm to match, while Nick's Seafood Restaurant is shouting a complimentary flute of Chandon for every dozen of the mollusc you purchase. For $29 at The Watershed Hotel, you can get half a dozen Sydney rock oysters teamed with ponzu sauce and a glass of wine, bubbly or tap beer.
Over at Fratelli Fresh, you'll find $1 oysters — with the purchase of a full-priced drink — all day, every day during the ten-day festival.
Then, on Thursday, September 26, the oyster obsession switches into overdrive for Champagne Bar at Sofitel's Four Oysters & Wines event. Head along to enjoy helpings of oysters from four famed Aussie regions – Port Stephens, Merimbula, Tasmania and Coffin Bay – matched to a range of free-flowing local wines. Each two-hour session clocks in at $98 a head.
