Between Margaret River and Witchcliffe is this gem of a place, and you may miss it as it is not advertised very well. If you have any slight interest of what resides in our oceans and on our reefs, this place is a must. The...More

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

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

My daughter is a huge shell fan and was delighted with what was displayed. An enormous and beautiful collection. I just thought the $8 adult / $4 child entry fee was a little steep for a 15 minute viewing.
