SYDNEY ROCK OYSTERS
East 33’s collection of Sydney Rock Oysters are amongst the very best oysters in the world. Easily identified by their beautiful royal purple shell, the Sydney Rock Oyster is Australia’s finest native oyster. Having grown naturally on the sun-kissed coastline of New South Wales for thousands of years, our oysters aren’t made, they’re born. Born better and with a bolder taste, the East 33 Sydney Rock Oyster proves that the best things come in small packages.
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 capturing the essence and magic of the New South Wales coastline in a delicious, saline bite.
The East 33 Series are designed to reflect the diversity of the species along the coastline and explore the intricacies and influences of the natural environment on Australia’s favourite native oyster. Named after the longitude of each region where Sydney Rock Oysters are cultivated the East 33 Series highlight the connection of our produce to the East Coast of New South Wales.
