Location:
  • Venus Bay, Victoria
  • This is around 2 hours drive from Melbourne.
  • Aim for Bay 1, turn left away from the entrance; or bay 5, turn right away from the entrance.
Preparation:
  • Map (see below)

  • Fishing License (Purchase at Kmart or DPI online)
  • Container (2-liter per person limit)
  • Sunscreen
  • Drinking water
  • NO digging tools! (hands and feet only)
Fun Part – Digging:
  • Best time is the low tide towards the lowest tide.
  • Pipi could be around 5~10 cm deep.
  • When you found one, dig around that area. Usually, they group together in one area.
  • Follow others, there are always people around digging pipi.
  • Remember to keep your pipi in some sea water, so they can live for a few days.
Excitement – Eating:
  • Keep pipi alive for a couple days. This helps clean up these sands they digested.
  • Put 50/50 fresh water/sea water; change them daily.
  • Make stir fries or soups.
