Event Description

Oysters and Champagne – A Victorian Story of Greed, Luxury, Catastrophe ... and Hope


As you enjoy fine champagne and freshly shucked oysters, The Hungry Gentlemen, Richard Cornish and Max Allen, will recount the tragic tale of how ancient native oyster reefs around Victoria’s shoreline were plundered in the 19th century to feed hordes of cashed-up gold miners and squatters flooding into the colony - all washed down with French champagne ostentatiously chilled on North American ice. This isn’t just a story about the past: we’re still living with the consequences of this rapacious harvest today, and beginning to see hope for the future. This event is environmental storytelling at its best - and most delicious.
