Our lovely shell purchase

If you love shells, then the Big Shell at Tewantin, near Noosa is the place to visit. This is a great opportunity to play inside a giant shell.

After you walk through the five metre high shell you enter a room full of all things shells and oceans - huge clams, rare corals, surf collectables, massive nautilus, cone shells, mobiles, shark teeth, sting ray jaws, Pacific Islander weavings, tropical theme paintings.

Kids will love spotting the real Nemo Clownfish and other bright tropical fish in the big tank. There are some beautiful shell specimens to purchase in all shapes and sizes. You pick up a little basket and fill it with shiny goodies from the sea.

On our way home in the car, the kids kept remarkably quiet by putting their ear to their new shells and listening to the sound of the ocean, or was that a mermaid whispering?
