Tathra Oysters

The Rodely family have been growing, harvesting, processing, wholesaling and retailing their Tathra Oysters for nearly three decades. They are passionate about the attributes of what they believe is the world’s greatest tasting oyster, the Sydney Rock Oyster. They are also passionate about the care of the wilderness location they have stewardship of. "Nelson Lake is a remarkably beautiful and bountiful place for the cultivation of this very special and rare oyster, that we are privileged to grow,” says Gary Rodely. "We have been steadily growing our farm to the point where we now have infrastructure in place to harvest up to 500,000 mature oysters each year. Our secret for success has been to be patient observers of the lake’s attributes and to give this slow growing oyster the time it needs to show its full potential.

The quality and passion for beer is recognised locally, nationally and internationally, earning Redoak the title 'Australia's most awarded brewery'. The company is committed to supporting small and independent producers and the environment.  The brewery runs on 100% solar power and all spent grain is given to local cattle farmers, etc. David is founding chairman for Australian Real Craft Brewers Association giving a unified voice to small independent breweries.

House of Arras

The House of Arras was founded in 1995 with the vision to craft exceptional sparkling wines, equal to the world’s best.  These wines were to be distinctly Australian in style by expressing both the terroir of the vineyard region and our unique wine making philosophy. This vision lead us to the pristine cold climate of Tasmania, renowned for producing wines exhibiting elegance and longevity, ideally matched to our wine making methods.  With extended maturation between 3 and 12 years before release, this combination is now coming to fruition, with the quality of Arras wine being recognised by wine critics on both a local and global scale.

Bracegirdle's House of Fine Chocolate

The first Bracegirdle’s store was opened at Glenelg South Australia in 2005. Since then four more stores were added. They started making their own chocolates from a tiny room. A move to larger premises as the business grew was necessary and a third move resulted in their “fish bowl” chocolate kitchen at Clarence Gardens. The company’s success follows fantastic results locally and interstate. Their vision has always been to provide the highest quality product and competitions are the foundation for motivation, innovation, development and improvement. The judges’ feedback is invaluable and the results are testament to the passion, dedication and skill of the small team of Chocolatiers. Visit the Bracegirdle's House of Fine Chocolate website here .
