Oysters at Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon Oyster farm in Boomer Bay, Tasmania, boasts a remarkable history deeply tied to the region's maritime heritage. Established several decades ago by a group of passionate oyster farmers, the farm's vision was to cultivate and sell fresh, tasty oysters from the pristine waters of Boomer Bay. Today, it stands as the only oyster farmgate on the Tasman Peninsula, offering a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the true essence of Tasmanian oysters. These exceptional oysters are nurtured in Boomer Bay, where they develop a distinctive, fresh, and briny flavor that reflects the surrounding forests and seagrass meadows, shaped by the influence of the East Coast oceanic currents.
As a small farm, Blue Lagoon Oysters specializes in growing beautiful Pacific Oysters and their vibrant sibling, the Premium Tassie Gold Pacific Oyster. Their dedication to preserving native Tasmanian species is evident, as they are the exclusive farmgate in the state to cultivate and sell the unique Angasi oyster. This native variety is only available for a limited period, approximately four months during the cooler months of the year. The farm's land base in Boomer Bay serves as the central hub for oyster sales, but the real magic unfolds a short 10-minute barge trip away in their crystal-clear water lease situated between Marion Bay and Dunalley in South-east Tasmania.
With a passion for their craft, the team at Blue Lagoon Oysters warmly invites visitors to share in their love of oysters. Their commitment to sustainability, quality, and preserving the natural ecosystem has garnered them a well-deserved reputation for excellence in the Tasmanian seafood industry. From the captivating history of their beginnings to the delightful experience of savoring their unique oysters, a visit to Blue Lagoon Oysters promises an unforgettable journey into the world of Tasmanian aquaculture.
We are very proud to stock Blue Lagoon Oysters at Bangor Vineyard Shed, fresh from the waters of the Bay in front of us.
