The Wild Rover wants to break the oyster-shucking world record at Sydney Bar Week!



Yeah you read right! On Sunday the 22nd of September during Sydney Bar Week, those rapscallion lads at The Wild Rover will bring you a foot stomping, swashbuckling Sunday featuring live folk and bluegrass tunes, plenty of whiskey and beer, and an oyster shucking competition. They’re looking for a pro to take on the world record for the most oysters shucked in a minute!

Which would be how many? We asked the Rover’s James Bradey:

What’s the current world record and who holds it?


38 in 1 minute by Patrick McMurray from Toronto, Canada.

How hopeful are you that the record will be broken?

Mildly confident.

Will there be blood?

Most definitely!

Get down to the Wild Rover from 12pm Sunday 22nd to see it all unfold, and head over to to check out the other great events on during the week.

Check out the video below to watch the current world record holder show you how to shuck an oyster (don’t worry, there’s no blood).
