The display is amazing and is unbelievable that one man could be so skilled in carving the Emu egg. Numerous carved eggs on display including eggs carved by the owner's daughter - Definitely has the "WOW" factor and is a must see - worth visiting.

We visited this exhibition on a Saturday morning, but I think it may have closed around noon. I think the only day it is closed is Sunday, but if in doubt there is a phone number so give it a call!
