Each Sydney Rock Oyster captures the essence of the water and environment in which it grows and matures. The Sydney Rock Oyster can only survive and thrive in the unspoiled coastline of New South Wales that stretches down the eastern seaboard of Australia, far from the blight of densely populated cities and polluted waterways. The Sydney Rock Oyster is nurtured over time and in pristine conditions to produce the rarest and most unique member of the oyster family. The result of this unique provenance is one of the rarest culinary pleasures in the world with each individual Sydney Rock Oyster producing moment of pleasure to savour.


The earliest chapters of oyster cultivation in Australia were written thousands of years ago, as indigenous communities tapped into a sustainable source of nutrition and pioneered many of the aquaculture techniques still employed by oyster farmers today.
In 1880 it was Thomas Holt who laid the foundations for the modern oyster industry, establishing cultivation beds in Botany Bay and creating ‘Oyster Leases’ as we know them today. One early pioneers of the industry was merchant banker Henry Woodward, who was granted the first leases in Wallis Lake – many of which today are managed by East 33 farmers. It was Woodward who introduced ‘oyster saloons’, bringing the Sydney Rock Oysters to a waiting Australian consumer eager to discover the delicacies of this new land.


As one of the largest vertically integrated Sydney Rock Oyster producers, East 33 is privileged with being able to source the finest Sydney Rock Oysters from the length of the New South Wales Coastline, year round.  In the same way that the great wines of regions such as Burgundy and Champagne reflect the ‘terroir’ of their natural environment, ‘merroir’ imparts unique and sophisticated characteristics on fine oysters, imparting a rich story of the waters they call home. It is these unique yet linked natural conditions that create three distinct “series” or styles of Sydney Rock Oyster. While these geographic groupings unite around a uniquely singular style, there remains significant diversity between farms and sub-regions, resulting in a never-ending and curious journey through taste and texture.


At East 33, we source our Sydney Rock Oysters from the entire length of the NSW coastline to bring you the best of the season’s harvest. Like ‘terroir’ in wine, oysters take on a specific ‘merroir’, flavour properties unique to each oyster as a result of the waters they call home.
