Tasmania  

Bruny Island TAS is an island just off the coast of Hobart. A prime example of Mother Nature creating something so delicate from an environment so harsh; cold and clean.

Little Swanport is located in east Tasmania and hour South of Freycinet; the oysters have a full creamy feel with a strong saline bite revealing light vegetal notes. Every spring Little Swanport produces Gold Band Oysters, which are a unique pedigree oyster. Did you know the unique environments these oysters are grown in give them grassy, nutty, sweet and creamy characteristics, which are not like any other oyster.
