Abalone


Tasmanian Abalone is known by the scientific name of Haliotis ruber, and that's about enough of that! The image above comes from Tasmanian Wild Seafood, and lets face it, that's the way most of us relate to abalone.

The rocky point to the north of The Gardens House has abalone and crayfish and you can get to them by the most modest form of skindiving. A couple of words of caution:
If all that sounds a bit like hard work, Bay of Fires Dive can make it happen for you without any fuss. They also hire out scuba gear and do tank fills. They're located in Binalong Bay, between the Gardens House and St Helens.
