After buying a waterfront property at Wonboyn Lake, Shane decided to give oyster farming a go and found a real passion for working on the water. He started off with a single acre directly in front of the house and has continued to grow the farm ever since.
Shane thinks the Wonboyn Lake environment is spectacular – he just loves it! The small seaside town is made up of 200 residents, a caravan park and a shop. He says that both the locals and holidayers are respectful of the wild environment, which means the water remains clean. The floating bag system that Shane employs works great to produce a well-shaped, sweet tasting oyster.
He and his wife Fiona love being outdoors working in their back garden and on the adjacent oyster farm. When Fiona can’t find Shane on the oyster lease then it means he’s probably gone fishing!
