This is such an interesting and weird place. It's gold coin donation and worth the visit, you can spend 10mins or 45mins here depending on your interest and the chat you want to have with the volunteer that day.

A run down, dirty establishment with extremely poor shell specimens - most labelled incorrectly. The lady there was beyond rude. Go to the beach and pick up your own, horrible place and people!

It's ok, a good range of shells run by older people. Expensive to buy shells. Have some cheaper ones for the kids to take home.

Located at the Information Centre, this attraction is very well priced at a gold coin donation. Holds so many displays of shells, and crazy things for sale made out of shells. All displays are well labelled and named.

Set in the park near Ross Creek, Shell World is well worth a visit and suitable for any budget. Very easy to access with plenty of parking and knowledgeable staff.
