Sydney Oyster Farm Tours is committed to social, cultural and environmental responsibility, inspired by a love and care for the Hawkesbury waterway. Sustainability is at the core of every business decision we make, including sequestering 3,750 kg of carbon through oyster farming, abiding by Leave No Trace principles, and encouraging guests to do the same.
Our green purchasing policy prioritises biodegradable and recyclable products with minimal packaging, locally made and produced items. In addition to hosting school groups for educational experiences, we conduct river clean-ups, employ locals and hold great respect for the local custodians of the land. Currently, we are in the process of obtaining ecotourism certification with Ecotourism Australia to further solidify our commitment to sustainability.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we enjoy the Hawkesbury River in Brooklyn, the Darkinjung and the Dharug peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging, and acknowledge their ongoing and deep spiritual connection to this land.
We honor their cultures, histories, and ongoing role in caring for the country and the waterways of the Hawkesbury River region.
Our family owned and run oyster farm
Our family run oyster farm has been supplying oysters to the Sydney market for over 15 years. Our farm is situated on the pristine waters of the Hawkesbury River, only a 45 minute drive from Sydney's CBD. Come behind the scenes and taste the freshest oysters of your life, from our farm-gate to your plate!
Did you know oyster farming is considered one of the most sustainable types of farming compared to other forms of aquaculture as they have a very minimal burden on the environment. This is because oysters draw their nutrients directly from the environment and require no additional feeding therefore it is extremely clean and less impactful on the surrounding ecosystem.
