Unique. Worth a visit just to see what this Greek man has managed to do with his life. He came here as an immigrant, became a boxer, and then and emu egg artist. His little video and personal introduction and tour is a one off - and worth the 10-15 minutes it takes, and all for $6!!!

So many Emu eggs on display - incredible detail. It is a great pity that the traveller is unable to buy any on these wonderful eggs. This is a must for any visitor for St George.

For only $3 we got to see a large collection of carved Emu eggs. Rather than carvings these were pure pieces of art, truely worth looking at. The artist an old and cheeky Greek guy in his 80's was there to explain everything. Worth a visit if you are near St George.

Stavros is passionate about his art and it shows. We were thoroughly entertained by his guided tour of the gallery. He also gave us a short history of post war migrants in Australia. The emu eggs are of course exquisite. A must see if you're out this way.

This is a must see when you are in St.George. It costs $3.00 to enter and is well worth the time. There are some amazing carvings of emu eggs that you would be unlikely to see anywhere else. The owner will guide you through his work and his lifetime of stories. Don't miss this.

Great experience . Wonderful artistic work. The story is being told by Stavros, which is really fascinating. There is so much history behind.

There's not a great deal of 'tourist' attractions in St George but you must check out the work of Steve Margaritis. He has dedicated a large chunk of his life to carving exquisite emu egg designs. Worth checking out and if you have time he'll definitely tell you more than a story or two.

$3 is not much to pay. An intetesting spot that is worth a visit. Give it a try as it doesn't take too long to see.
