American River Experiences

Food and Wine Tours

Kangaroo Island Shellfish is located on the wharf at American River on Kangaroo Island – the home of the Island’s oyster industry. Our farmgate, The Oyster Farm Shop is located just across the road. Our working farm grows Pacific and the KI native Angasi oysters and our farm shop showcases our oysters along with other Island Aquaculture and Sustainable Seafood produce.

Over the ten years that the Oyster Farm Shop has been open to the public we have had many requests for tours of the farm. It had always been our plan to expand the ‘on-farm’ experience that we offer in American River.

Finally, in 2020 we launched our first land-based Oyster Farm experience in American River with plans to launch a variety of experiences to further showcase our town.
