Baiting you with even more Seafood Delights

Sandstone Point Hotel’s lawn will be awash in oyster, seafood and wine stalls as far as the eye can sea, showcasing Australian-wide produce and a variety of seafood themed food stalls. The Pearl Bar – exclusive to Sandstone Point’s Oyster Festival – will be open for business and 3 trawlers will also be moored at the Sandstone Point jetty filled to the bream with fresh seafood to take home.

There will also be live musical entertainment, and a fireworks finale to top off the evening.

The Perfect North of Brisbane Oyster Festival Venue

The land upon which Sandstone Point Hotel now sits was once a fully-operational Oyster Farm. In homage to its past, the venue’s restored open-air, dining area, the Oyster Shed (originally erected in 1875) is fully operational all year round, dishing up oyster and seafood delights for guests to graze on as they overlook the water.
