A very nondescript building made me wonder if it eas worth it...but it was. A personal collection of thousands of shells from across the globe. The owner is very friendly and happy to talk about his diving career and adventures. Definately with a look. Takes eft payments too.
This place was amazing! So much to look at. Lovely owners, had a great chat and learnt a lot. Such a big collection to look at.
Easily missed but glad we didn't. Not just another museum. An excellent collection of sea shells from in and out of australia. My family ended up spending a long time there looking through our favourite shells.
Loved it. Great to see such an impressive range of shells that overwhelmed me with how many types they had collected over so many decades due to their passion for shells.
Jaw dropping. I read the pamphlet at the info center and when I read "Australias largest private collection of shells, corals crustaceans" I expected it to be smaller in scale than the public museum displays I'm used too, I was so wrong. Theres more shells than I've seen in my entire life, there were so many and so beautiful. Theres neat displays of rows and rows of gorgeous little round shells, and displays of huge spikey shells, giant crabs, fish and all kinds of stuff. If you've ever found something cool at the beach and marvelled at natures designs then this is like everthing beautiful anyones every found at the beach all presented together in a jaw dropping display. I've got to say you have got to visit if you are in the area.
