You may have already read how much I love oysters, so when we went to Bruny Island, it was the first thing I looked for!

Thankfully, there is a great oyster option on Bruny Island called Get Shucked. Not only are the oysters super fresh but you can even look out over their farm as you eat them.

Get Shucked Bruny Island Review

Get Shucked was our last stop for the day on our first day on Bruny Island so we could both enjoy the oysters on site and then have just a short drive so we could get a whole lot of take away ones for our stay. It was a great plan!

The place itself is great – there are a range of tables and chairs outside as well as a few inside tables. The place is simple but good looking and effective. With the water across the road, you can sit with water views including an arrow to point out where their oyster farm actually is. I’ve never eaten oysters before while watching where they came from! It does seem to make them taste even more fresh.

The menu is simple with only a few options outside of oysters. I wish there were more options so this would make a better lunch spot. However, you can get chips or bread and dips as well as a smoked salmon option. Get Shucked is also fully licensed. You can see the menu below.

As always, we stuck with natural fresh oysters. They were big and juicy and oh so good with a little squeeze of lemon and a glass of cold sauvignon blanc.

The place is family friendly and there were other families in addition to ours.

Out the back of the eating area they were processing fresh oysters off the back of their trailer. It doesn’t get fresher than this.

These photos were taken in October 2020, but we visited again in April 2022 and the prices are basically identical except a dozen natural oysters are now $24. Still so good!

Get Shucked can be found at 1735 Bruny Island Main Road, Great Bay, North Bruny, Tasmania. This is the main road that goes between the ferry and the Neck and you won’t be able to miss it. Here, the main road is right by the water and you can see their oyster farm as you eat the oysters. It doesn’t get better than that!

Final Words

If you are an oyster lover, stopping here for some awesome Bruny Island oysters is mandatory! It doesn’t get better than this with the whole experience from looking at the farm as you eat to seeing them drive up with fresh oysters.

The menu is limited so there isn’t any point stopping here if you are not an oyster fan. If you are not quite sure, you can buy just one for $2 and decide for yourself. However, I recommend you just start with the dozen as you won’t be sorry 🙂

All in all, this place is definitely worth a stop or a drive thru 🙂
