Event Description

Queensland's first and only commercial snail farm.

Established in November 2008.


After several years of research and study, we choose the Glass House Mountains region for both climat and altitude to start our heliculture business and believe that we have the best grain fed product of its kind in Australia.

We are located in the fertile Glass House Mountains 2102 Old Gympie Road Glass House Mountains 4518.
We grow and supply to the food industry quality grain feed live snails (Helix Aspersa).
We are offering an unique opportunity for visitors to experience farming with a difference.
We give a guided tour of the Snail farm and the different concepts of growing snails in captivity. Visitors have the opportunity to wander around our tropical gardens, feed the fish in the dam and generally enjoy the quiet relaxed atmosphere of Snails Pace Retreat. When all are ready, we will serve Devonshire tea or coffee on our verandah.

Looking forward to your company.
Mary, Cliff

You can actually buy direct from the farm.

Aaaah! Since buying the little blighters to cook myself is not on the menu … Black Pearl Epicure - a step above 'Gourmet' ;-) priced to match.

They have this on their website
We enjoy the opportunity to showcase our farm.
We have had bus tours from 9 people to 50 people visit.
We also serve morning or afternoon teas.
We have snail tasting available by prior arrangement.
Our produce is available direct from the farm or through our distributor Black Pearl Epicure.

For $5 I'd prefer a snail or three served the (whatever is) usual way. Devonshire tea I can make myself but cooking snails is an art I've not yet attempted.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
