Leeuwin Coast, Plated Rock Oyster

Albany Rock Oysters thrive in the cool, nutrient-rich waters of Oyster Harbour on the south coast of Western Australia. The season has now ended and will re-start around November 2024.

The estuarine environment of Oyster Harbour gives Albany Rock Oysters a rich flavour profile that is completely unique to Albany.


Tasting of a gentle sea spray brine, with grassy undertones, Albany Rock Oysters are bright and balanced with a hint of watermelon rind and cucumber making them the perfect summer oyster.

How They Grow

0-12 Months

We use hatchery produced spat (juveniles) to produce Albany Rock Oysters, ensuring our farms receive the very best quality seed stock.  

When large enough, spat are transferred to our farm in Oyster Harbour.

12+ Months

Albany Rock Oysters grow and thrive by filtering the nutrient-rich waters of Oyster Harbour and don’t require any additional feed.

As Albany Rock Oysters grow, we monitor and manage the infrastructure to ensure the stock gets enough space and optimum conditions.  

We use flipping techniques to emulate tidal conditions that Albany Rock Oysters are adapted to, and to keep our equipment in optimal condition.

What Our Chefs Are Saying  /

“The Albany Rock Oyster has a very distinct flavour, like a samphire, succulent flavour and I love serving them on my menu as my customers absolutely adore them.”
“Every oyster in the world tastes a little bit different. We love serving these oysters in summer because they are clean, creamy and briny and really lend themselves to an array of different garnishes.”
