Sandstone Point Hotel’s new Oyster Shed Beach Club will officially open on Saturday.

The waterfront venue will host an 18+ opening party with ARIA-award winning producer, Stace Cadet, from Melbourne to perform at the free event.

Previously a fish and chippery, the oyster shed has tripled in size with a new covered dining area, cocktail station, landscaping, lounge-style furniture and day beds. A fire pit will follow.

The beach club will offer fresh local seafood, from charcoal roasted prawns to king fish sashimi and an expansive cocktail list.

“The Oyster Shed has always been hugely popular,” Comiskey Group Director Rob Comiskey said.

“But since the hotel grew in popularity and Sandstone Point Holiday Resort opened its doors, we knew we wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand.

“The new beach club takes inspiration from Bali and Greece, it is a lot more vibrant with cruisy upbeat music and more areas to relax in.”

The land which the hotel and Oyster Shed Beach Club are on was originally an oyster farm with a red tin shed. Its landmark roof remains, renovated with the hotel development in 2015.

In 1875, James Clark operated an oyster farm out of Pumicestone Passage.

During its peak in the 1900s, he owned more than 30 dredging sections and employed more than 25 families in the area.

The new Oyster Shed Beach Club opening is an 18+ event from 3pm on Saturday with the DJ until 9pm. For more information click here.
