To get your taste buds tantalised here is a list of Seafood festivals and events around Australia that are open to the public. For any lovers of Seafood and great scenery plan a trip and check out the spectacular places where our seafood comes from. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
As many of these festivals are in small towns, accommodation can book out so make sure you plan your trip and ensure you have some where to stay when you get there. Or better yet, grab your camper van and get going. If you are also a recreational fisher, there are some events here, where you can drop a line in as well.
If you are heading overseas, we have also included a few of the Seafood Festivals you can find outside of Australia!
