Oysters were fresh and tasty but expensive. $22/dozen. More expensive than Barilla bay oysters which we tried days before (although we had to pay $1 and $1.50 respectively for lemon and tabasco separately on top of the price of $13.90/dozen for takeaway). The mussels steamed...More

We had oysters and mussles. Although both are equally good, we loved the mussles more. 😅 the location is great.

They’re fast, busy and the service and seafood is superb! I’ve eaten more freshly shucked oysters this trip than collectively in my life but when they’re this good it’s hard to say no.

This is a very popular place for tourists to drop in for a seafood lunch. The oysters came straight form Coles Bay and shucked on the spot. Other seafood options are also available and reasonablwe prices in a very casual atmosphere.More

We were looking forward to some excellent oysters on our trip to Tasmania, and this place delivers. We arrived lunch time, and the place was heaving. Everyone was chowing down on platefuls of seafood and looking as though they were really enjoying every mouthful -...More

Loved the way they do things at Freycinet Marine Farm. As is often the case when you're staying in or around National parks, the eating options can be tricky - either luxuriously exclusive and overpriced, or standard and overpriced! Finding these guys is the best...More

Odd bunch of questions for Tasmania roadtrip (1 Replies)
Dear Taz experts, We are planning to fly into Devonport, arriving at 1pm on Sat mid-Dec. Need to pick up a rental car, have lunch and stock up for food for a 2 night stay in Cradle Mountain. What's the closest large supermarket? Is there a big IGA in Latrobe? Very keen to sample local produce, e.g., veg & fruit, beef/lamb/pork but suspect local butchers might be closed by the time we drive into town from the airport, unless it's really quick to get things done at Devonport airport? ...More

Hello from Borneo! My husband and I will be visiting our two teenagers, who are currently studying in Hobart, for 14 days in July, and bringing them on a driving trip of the island. I have done some research and come up with this itinerary. I would very much appreciate your comments and advice, being aware that sunset comes early in winter and that we might not be able to do all that I have planned.

It looks like a very good plan. Yes, you should be able to go to the top of Mount Wellington on the way back from the Huon Valley. The B64 turns off the Huon Highway a little south of Hobart and you can follow it to Fern tree and on up to the mountain. It's signposted off the highway. Yes, it ios possible to go from launceston to Cradle Mountain and then on to Strahan in a day. Go via Zeehan to Strahan. You'll need to get an early start. Enjoy your trip. :)

You're sure it's not a prank ? It looks like the most packed itinerary something would think of as a joke to trick TripAdvisor advisors. You have a 70 year old on your group and you pack stuff in like you're all overdosed on caffeine or something, slow it down ! There's no way, no way you can do that itinerary. Day 1 is just insane for example. On day 2 you're staying only half a day in Cradle, doing the caves then driving to Hobart ? You're gonna have heart attacks... It's too long to read,...More
