Pretty tired now...

This was probably much more impressive before it got relegated to the back room of the local roadhouse and had most of it's teeth knocked out/broken off. The story is interesting (I'm from the nearby area) but the model really needs some work. The other exhibits are very ordinary, however the history is reasonably well written up. Worth ducking into if you're shopping/fueling up but hard to justify otherwise.

Huge white shark
Dec 2019
In this little nice museum you can see a huge white shark which was caught by a boy 30 years ago. It is impressive to see how tiny we are. It's an interesting story and worth to stop for a look and to combine with buying refreshing cold beverages and Australian ice cream.

Queue John Williams “Jaws” theme music!

Housed in a back room in the Shell roadhouse in Streaky Bay is a replica of a Great White Pointer shark caught on 26 April 1990. The mature female shark weighed in at 1520 kgs, more than 5m long and was estimated to be 16 to 18 years old.

Just to stand look at the replica gave me the chills knowing that this species is responsible for may shark attacks in Australian waters. I was struck by the enormity of it and also the menacing teeth ready to take yet another prey. In some ways, it is majestic and evil at the same time.

Displayed on the walls are copies of news clippings about the catch and other relevant information about sharks in general.

I listened but could not hear the low bass line of the introduction to the “Jaws” movie theme – thankfully.

Better signage pointing to the room would have been advantageous. And yes we did buy some food form the roadhouse. But that is another story for another day!

Return? The Great White Pointer shark is one of those things that once seen is enough. So probably not!

This is well worth taking a bit of time to read the history of the Great White Shark being caught. There were several other visitors viewing the shark and taking photos. Great display.

Bloody huge
Oct 2018 • Couples
It offers a great close up of the size of these creatures without getting in the water. You wouldn't expect to see one in the back room of a roadhouse. It adds to the mystery and there are other great items and information there. A man st see for free.

Shark is pretty cool

Not much in the way of tourist information but the shark was pretty cool and the kids loved it. Worth the visit for the shark, not for info.

Up close to a Great White Pointer Shark (replica)
Sep 2018 • Couples
In the most unlikely of places to display a replica of a Great White Shark in the back room of petrol station/restaurant in Streaky Bay. The huge shark was caught off Streaky Bay by a young fisherman using lines. There are newspaper cuttings displayed reporting this momentous >5mtr catch.
Closest I’ll be to a shark if I can help it.

Shockingly huge
Aug 2018 • Couples
When you walk-in and are confronted with a 5m white shark facing you jaw first it becomes very apparent on how vulnerable we are if one of these meets us in the ocean. This replica shark of the record catch in 1990 is brilliant and confronting in the same breath. Call into the Shell Servo, get some fuel and have a look at the Great White Shark.
