St Helens, Tasmania, 7216
Lease 65 oysters on the road to Binalong Bay just outside St Helens produces some of the best Pacific Oysters in Tasmania. If the sign is out you can stop here to buy unopened or opened oysters at very appealing prices.
You can inspect the equioment used to harvest and maintain the nearby oyster lease at this location as well as buy the oysters from the friendly staff. When we ordered a dozen unopened Pacific Oysters recently the guy who was selling them gave us 6 regular ones and then 6 of a slightly different species of the same oyster which was flatter (but not a Belon oyster) and with a frilled shell that had a "hook" where the the top and bottom shells join. When we opened these we found that they had a muscle attached to both the top and bottom part of the shell - very unusual!
We prefer to buy them unopened because then there is no danger that they have been washed and the briny juices washed away.
