Coffin Bay is a laid-back fishing village with an international reputation. Renowned as the home of some of the world’s best oysters, the sheltered bay is fed by natural springs that make the region’s oysters less salty than their ocean-grown counterparts. Nurtured by the pristine waters, the result is premium Pacific oysters which are primed for tasting straight from the sea.
From this idyllic seaside town, glide through crystal-clear waters to a working oyster farm. Wader-clad and waist-deep in turquoise water, pluck your very own oysters straight from the ocean, learn how to properly shuck your fist-sized Pacific prize, then sample the briny fruits of your labour.
The seafood buffet continues on land. The foreshore is lined with ocean-inspired restaurants. One of our favourite spots is 1802 Oyster Bar & Restaurant, where you’ll find the coveted molluscs served no less than 12 ways. Our connections with the region’s growers and producers mean on tour, you’ll never miss a delicious morsel.
Coffin Bay’s premium oysters are matched only by the area’s indelible landscapes, which are most breathtaking in Coffin Bay National Park. Home to a swathe of the Eyre Peninsula’s best beaches, including Almonta Beach, this is Australia at its best. Here, you can roam secluded, sandy shores without the normal crowds of beach goers – except for the resident mob of kangaroos and emus. The township itself is charming and complete with waterfront shacks and jetties.
