Fresh Seafood In The Highlands

Fresh Seafood In The Highlands

Christmas Seafood 2018

It’s so very Australian to go all seafood-crazy over Christmas.
Prawns. Oysters. Fish. Squid. Lobster. Crab. Oh my.
Below is a list of local spots to get your fresh seafood in the lead up to Christmas:


“The Caltex Seafood Van Man”

That’s not his official business name, but it’s how most of us know him. Alex’s van will be set up outside the Caltex Petrol Station at the Mittagong end of Bong Bong Street. He’ll be there on Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd December, 6am – 3pm.

And on Christmas Eve he’ll be set up from 4am – 4pm (it’s not a typo folks, that’s 4am) with a van overflowing with the freshest seafood from the South Coast.

He’s only taking pre-orders for whole fish, so get in touch with Alex for that, otherwise for everything else, it’s first in, first served. Set your alarms.


Bundanoon Butcher

This friendly, local butcher is open Monday – Saturdays, with fresh seafood available on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Pre-order to avoid disappointment, however you can also pop in to purchase their range of all the Chrismassy-seafood-goodness you’d expect. Orders need to be in by the week before Christmas, but the earlier the better!


Railway Street Farmers Markets

You can always find yourself some delicious and fresh, South Coast seafood at the Thursday Railway Street Markets.

Head over on a Thursday and you’ll find premium salmon, oysters (YUM) and sustainably sourced prawns by the Australian Prestige Oyster and Prawn Company. First in, first served on Thursday OR pre-order online before 5pm on 21st December. Pick up Railway Street, Moss Vale at 11.15am on Christmas Eve – what a great idea!




Simon’s Gourmet Butcher

Located in Springetts Arcade in Bowral, this busy butcher usually has fresh seafood available at the counter on Wednesdays and Fridays, however they will have fresh seafood available every day in the lead up to Christmas. The team can source any seafood that you would like over Christmas, just have your pre-orders in by Dec 15th.


New Astor Cafe

The New Astor café has a great range of fresh seafood available. They are taking pre-orders up until the 20th December for absolutely any type of seafood that you have your heart set on. Pick up will be Christmas Eve.



Harris Farm

The seafood store inside Harris Farm is overflowing with fresh seafood. Call ahead and they will take pre-orders (between 1st and 15th December) for large quantities, otherwise just head in and be prepared to line up!


Fire Drum

Needing seafood earlier than Christmas Eve? FireDrum will be taking orders for your favourite seafood to be delivered on Saturday 22nd December. Pop in to check the list of seafood on offer or email your orders to by 18th December. Perfect for the pre-Christmas family lunch!



Most of the local supermarkets in the area have a seafood counter to purchase your Christmas seafood feast. View the full list of supermarkets here.
