Sea to the City – Brisbane’s New Bug and Oyster Trail

When it comes to seafood, Queenslanders are a lucky bunch…with the coastline at our fingertips, it’s easy access to the very freshest and best of the oceans.

But you don’t have to head sea-side to enjoy with a new event that will bring the Sea to the City.

It’s a bug and oyster trail right on the banks of the Brisbane River, which is fitting as the area is already home to some of the finest restaurants in the country.

Jellyfish, Black Bird and Madame Wu are just three of the fifteen restaurants getting involved as the trail will cover from Eagle Street Pier right down to Customs House.

Starring two main dishes, the Moreton Bay Bug and the oyster, the trail will celebrate fresh seafood against the backdrop of the Brisbane River.

Eateries involved are whipping up specialty dishes not usually offered

Here’s just a small selection of what will be on offer:


Mango gazpacho with oyster and jalapeño relish, topped with steamed white fish and fresh Asian herbs

Black Bird

Rice cracker crusted crispy Oyster po’boy w seaweed mayo & Westmont pickles

BBQ Sweet n’ Sour Moreton Bay Bug wrapped in bacon  –  cooked over peach wood

Madam Wu
