Top Places To Sample The Freshest Seafood In Tasmania

Tasmania is renowned for producing some of the world’s finest, fresh fruits of the sea and all are easily accessible to you on your motorhome adventure if you just know where to look. In this pure island state you can collect freshly caught fish from the hands of the local fisherman and enjoy some of the best seafood restaurants that Australia has to offer. As you travel around Tasmania, stock your camper fridge full of fresh delights and enjoy them alfresco outside your camper.

Constitution Dock, Hobart 

At Constitution Dock you will enjoy a unique sea-to-plate experience. With a number of punts selling the best of the local catch, you can sample a variety of delicacies including trevalla, scallops and just-shucked oysters. Grab some fish and chips and enjoy them fresh in your motorhome or sit on the dock – but, be prepared to share them with the local seagulls!

Tasmanian Seafood Seduction Tour 

Those looking for a slightly more up-market seafood encounter in beautiful surrounds should look no further than Tasmanian Seafood Seduction run by local award-winning company, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. On this unique tour you will glide over the reflective waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel surrounding Bruny Island gathering some of Tasmania’s finest seafood including sea urchin, mussels and  coveted abalone. A highlight of the tour is catching your own crayfish from the southern tip of the island and cooking up a seafood feast on board the boat with the help of your friendly expert local guide. This is a once-in-a-lifetime seafood encounter that should not be missed.

Freycinet Marine Farm 

With a prime location on Tasmania’s pristine East Coast, Freycinet Marine Farm offers fresh, daily-caught delights on a charming outdoor decking area with sweeping views. Before you leave, grab some of their specialty oysters to enjoy in the comfort of your motorhome. We recommend the oysters Kirkpatrick grilled with bacon and spicy sauce.

Barilla Bay Oysters

Just around the corner from the Cruisin’ Hobart branch you will discover some of the best oysters in Tasmania at Barilla Bay Oysters. Here you have the opportunity to taste a variety of contemporary oysters including Kilpatrick with bacon and blue cheese, natural oysters with lemon and even blue cheese and cauliflower mornay! Try one of their specialist oyster platters or enjoy their freshly made seafood chowder. Dine at their ambient restaurant or continue up the east coast on your Cruisin’ adventure with your fridge fully stocked.

Dunalley Fish Market 

This local secret is well worth penciling into your quest to find Tasmania’s freshest seafood. Here you will discover fresh fish filleted onsite, just-shucked oysters and crayfish cooked daily in season. This hidden stop on the charming Denison Canal is well-worth making the detour for. Enjoy your seafood inside at the market by a roaring fire or cook fresh seafood up yourself at the onsite BBQ. For the ultimate takeaway experience, uncork a bottle of wine, pull out the fresh oysters and dine at your outdoor setting overlooking the clear waters of Tasmania’s east coast and simply let the hours while away. Enjoy!

Blue Shed Restaurant

Also located on the east coast you will find Blue Shed Restaurant in the lively hub of St Helens; the largest town on the coast. Select your own fresh seafood from their tanks and enjoy it with water-side views. The restaurant also has an onsite wine expert ready to pare your dish with fine Tasmanian wine.

Drunken Admiral 

Though on the slightly more expensive side, this restaurant is well-worth a night out for its divine seafood offerings. The Drunken Admiral is located on Constitution Dock and has a fun nautical theme that will entertain both adults and kids. Locals swear that their seafood chowder (that has been on the menu since opening in 1979!) is the finest in all the state!
