Owned by Sydney bar barron Fraser Short and The Sydney Collective, Balcony Bar & Oyster Co are the oyster experts in Byon Bay and have a bevy of fish and shellfish dishes on the menu. Fraser says, “Oysters are having a moment, and no wonder. They’re delicious, unpretentious, and, with their seemingly magical ability to filter the waters they grow in, sustainable, too. When I see oysters on a menu, I have a hard time not ordering them. There’s just nothing like sitting at the bar with a frosty beer or a glass of Rose and slurping down a dozen.”


The Byron Bay region provides a natural theater for incredible food that is incredibly unique, a green topography of rolling hills and gently sloped mountains. Across the road the deep blue of the sea shimmers across the horizon and fish, big fish, small fish, dolphins and whales are literally everywhere.
