We called in here on our return trip from Pussers Landing. it was a real surprise to find it in the middle of nowhere. There was a very large collection of shells etc available for a donation. The owner was very cheerful whilst he provided some local music

Visit with Egbert is worth the stop. Lots of shell art, inspirational sayings. It's like a shell version of Watts Towers.

This isn't what is generally perceived as a museum but rather as a collection of shells and sayings. It was started about 25 years ago by a local man, who is keen to show you his 'museum'. He has collected sayings from older people and painted them on boards, some are amusing and others not very understandable. He has also got a few old bits and pieces like crockery scattered about. The man is very proud of his 'museum' and it's worth spending 10 - 15 minutes with him. There is no entrance fee but you can put a donation in a box without obligation.

This place is off the wall, quirky and fun for all ages except those who are too young to understand the concept of, "look but don't touch". It has clearly evolved over many years and I was lucky enough on one particular trip to meet the charming owner. It's a one of a kind and well worth a visit.
