I collect shells and thought this house off some obscure road near Margaret river would be poor at best - I was so wrong. The couple who run the place for some 38 years have an amazing and huge collection although photos are not allowed...More

We were gobsmacked by this museum. The entry prices were very reasonable we thought and the collection is vast, beautifully put together and well labelled. We enjoyed talking to Kath, the collector's wife and found the whole place fascinating. It is very well laid out...More

Our kids love collecting seashells whenever we’re on a beach so we thought we’d check this place out on a wet weather day. Located just off the main road with plenty of parking. Essentially one man’s lifetime collection of sea shells, sea animals and other...More
