We drove over 90 minutes (from Stokes Bay) to visit the Oyster Farm. The food was decent (we had marron and oysters) but we had hoped to actually see the oyster farming process and learn more about the industry. This is only a small road...More

The Oyster Farm Shop, Kangaroo Island Shellfish is the largest oyster farm on Kangaroo Island. It is not a restaurant, cafe or fish and chip shop - it is a unique farm shop where we process and value add to our oysters. See staff opening and smoking oysters. Simple, delicious takeaway lunch available 11-3pm.
