Celebrating its 5th year, the annual Oyster Festival is back to satisfy those salty seafood hankerings. Sean Connolly and the team at The Morrison invite you to get out of your shell and dive into an array of shucking good fun, food and drinks – serving up hundreds of the slippery suckers every day throughout the month of August.

“As an avid seafood lover, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to enjoying Australia’s great producers – in my 44 years’ experience of working with seafood, no one is more passionate about the humble oyster than Sean Connolly and the team at The Morrison – the Oyster Festival naturally being the pinnacle of celebrating this and my favourite time of year.”
– Frank Theodore, De Costi

The Details

Shuck Yeah

Oyster Festival shell-ebrates fresh oysters sourced from over 50 regions of Australia, from farm to table with Sean Connolly’s favourite oyster dishes on the menu (including a Regional Roulette of fresh oysters with matching vinegar dressings, and Beer Battered Oysters with mushy peas and bits) it would be shucking crazy not to try these delectable treats.


Check out classics such as his Carpetbag Steak – a tender eye fillet stuffed with oysters and dijon mustard, served with a rich red wine jus!


$1 Oyster Hour

Get your bivalve fix at a buck a shuck every night of the month!


Available in main bar from 6-7pm, we recommend arriving a little earlier to grab a table and cool bevvie ($5 Happy Hour runs daily from 5-7pm) and prepare for the ultimate challenge.


* Served in the bar area, for walk-ins only. Please prepare for a little bit of a queue, but we promise our oysters are worth the wait!



Bottoms Up

A dash of seduction – immerse yourself in the age old love-affair between oysters and champagne and treat yo’self to a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck!


For those who’ve already earned their sea-legs, try a nip of smoky Talisker whisky or a Red Snapper cocktail with a smoked oyster. Or a Verdita oyster shooter laced with Don Julio tequila, flavoured with a herbaceous concoction of pineapple, jalapeno and mint.
