Australians can expect an extra special festive season this weekend without having to shell out for it, as Coles cracks crustacean prices just in time for Christmas celebrations.
From Wednesday 22 December, WA Rock Lobsters will be available at Coles Delis nationwide at just $22 each, down from $27 each in November, so customers can satisfy their cray-vings for a luxury delicacy on Christmas Day.
In selected stores across the country, Coles is also offering WA Rock Lobster tails and extra-large WA Rock Lobsters for the first time ever, while keeping the prices low for customers to enjoy ahead of Christmas.
Coles is continuing to make a splash with savings across its responsibly sourced fresh seafood range in what will be its biggest week for seafood sales this year. Customers are expected to purchase 10 times as many prawns as they would in an average week, while 40% of Coles’ annual lobster sales will be made in the days leading up to Christmas.
An abundance of Australian wild-caught and cooked prawns in the domestic market and strong partnerships with Aussie fisheries across the country is providing shrimply the best quality and value for Coles customers this festive season, including fresh cooked black tiger prawns at $27/kg.
Coles General Manager for Bakery, Deli and Seafood, Andy Mossop said after a challenging year for many Australians, celebrating together over a delicious feast is what we have all been waiting for this Christmas – and what better way to celebrate than with an abundance of fresh Aussie seafood.

We are delighted to be able to make great quality and responsibly sourced Australian seafood like WA Rock Lobsters more affordable so more Australians can treat themselves this Christmas Day,” Andy said.
