This is the largest private shell collection in Australia and well worth a visit. Local couple Peter and Kathy have spent a lifetime collecting shells and they display a wonderful selection, not just from around WA but all over the world. Their knowledge of shells and sea life is incredible, and Kathy welcomes you into their home business with a... More

The collection is very good, the lady running the place lovely and friendly, but the entry costs were pretty high for what took less than 1/2hr. Was very disappointed to hear no photos, would have liked to take a photo of the kids with a giant clamp shell as part of documenting our trip.

We stumbled upon this little gem of a place on the back from a trip to Margaret River. This shell collection is the largest private collection of shells in the world and worth a look - especially if you have kids. My nephews (six and nearly three) loved it! The collection is housed in such a way that a lot... More

Our kids love collecting seashells whenever we’re on a beach so we thought we’d check this place out on a wet weather day. Located just off the main road with plenty of parking. Essentially one man’s lifetime collection of sea shells, sea animals and other tit bits displayed in a large part of their house. Small entry fee as a... More

My daughter is a huge shell fan and was delighted with what was displayed. An enormous and beautiful collection. I just thought the $8 adult / $4 child entry fee was a little steep for a 15 minute viewing.

If you are anywhere near try and make time to visit the Bellview Shell Museum. It's a real eye opener. You could spend hours examining this collection; and then you have the opportunity to purchase a souvenir. This collection is one man's lifetime hobby - they had to extend their house to display the many 1000s of beautiful specimens in... More

Couldn't believe all the beautiful shells. Do yourself a favour & visit this "under the radar" attraction.

If you are in the Margaret River Region this attraction is a MUST.From the moment Kathy opens the front door you will be amazed not only by the friendly welcome but by the most incredible collection of seashells and marine life that you will ever experience.You won't want to leave. ALL members of the family will enjoy this attraction.

Whilst on a short break in Busselton we motored down to Witchcliffe having seen the advertisment for the Bellview Shell Collection in the copy of the Geographe Bay Travel Guide 2013 that we collected from the Busselton Guest House where we spent three very restful nights. It was an excellent choice that we made as we spent over three hours... More
