Five ways to celebrate Darling Harbour’s inaugural Sydney Oyster Week

Sydney Oyster Week (or rather Sydney Oyster 10-days) is upon us, currently running up until 30th September with just about everything a self-respecting oyster lover could want (ie, cheap-as-chips high quality oysters).

It’s the first year for this briny celebration, so you can expect the ever-changing Darling Harbour to be showing off their best side, from the luxe Sofitel and stalwart Nick’s Seafood Restaurant, to The Port and Fratelli Fresh.

Here are the spots you need to go to get involved.

Oysters and Champagne at Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

Head to Champagne Bar on September 26 and 27 where “FOUR Oysters & Wines” will see oysters from leading Australian regions paired with wines from local vineyards for an epically lush tasting event. And if you can’t make it on those two days, head along anyway – the Champagne Bar is doing up $1.95 oysters all week.
