Our love for seafood spans 50 years

Lake Macquarie locals who love their oysters know that Dawson’s Oyster Supplies have been a tradition in the Lake Macquarie area since 1964 when it was first established by the original owners, the Dawson family. The Dawson’s supplied local restaurants with fresh oysters and in 1980 opened their retail outlet in Warners Bay to sell direct to the consumer. Fast forward almost 40 years and this much-loved local family business at 67 king St, Warners Bay has had a total refresh with new owners, new branding and a shop fitout.

In 2021, the Dawson family sold the business to new local owners: Hannah, Thelma and Louise. All women have long-standing relationships in the fishing industry through their commercial marine backgrounds and a huge passion for seafood. The Dawson family are still involved day-to-day, working alongside Hannah, Thelma and Lou.
