The Oyster Farm Shop, Kangaroo Island Shellfish is the largest oyster farm on Kangaroo Island. It is not a restaurant, cafe or fish and chip shop - it is a unique farm shop where we process and value add to our oysters. See staff opening and smoking oysters. Simple, delicious takeaway lunch available 11-3pm.
