Welcome to Blue Shed Restaurant

Blue Shed restaurant is a family owned business specialising in seafood. Situated in the seaside town of St Helens just minutes from the world famous Bay of Fires region on Tasmania’s east coast.

Blue Shed evolved from a humble beginning as a small fish punt on the St Helens foreshore known as Captains Catch. The owners Rod and Irena Faulkner embarked on a complete rebuild of the fish punt transforming it into the iconic structure it is today. Locals referred to it as the Blue Shed. Rod and Irena decided that the name suited the building perfectly.

The Blueshed is one of the only restaurants on the east coast licenced to collect scale fish, southern rock lobster and oysters from local fishermen and retail to the public.
