    Short Property Description

    We are an Oyster Farm on Moreton Island. We catch, grow and sell the Rock oysters.

    The farm is in a National and Marine Park and we generate our own solar power and catch rainwater. Access to Moreton island is via North Stradbroke Island in our boat. We travel to Stradbroke Island on a Thrusday or Friday each week.

    Work includes culling oysters, building infrastructure on the water leases, harvesting, and land based maintenance. It would be good if you could swim. We also have a retail store on the farm selling all types of fresh seafood.

    You can go kayaking, snorkelling, swimming in your spare time. Studio apartment accom for 1-2 people.

    No children

    Food supplied for you to cook in your accommodation. Lunch with us while working. We will share our meals a few times a week if we are cooking a big roast and would love to try foods you may like to cook.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We feel we can show wwoofers a different way of life by been off grid. We enjoy learning about new cultures and you feel we can share some Australian ways of life. Aquaculture is a sustainable way to feed the population. We welcome applications from WWOOFers interested in experiencing island life and our special brand of Queensland hospitality. Demand for the Rock Oyster is increasing as consumers appreciate the importance of sustainably-farmed Australian seafood produced in its natural environment.
