“Shell Experience”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

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 inspecting this superb collection of shells. It is the most comprehensive collection that we have encountered in our extensive travels in Australia and abroard. We highly recommend it to everyone who has an interest in sea shells.

“A Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

When you ring the door bell and the door is opened by a lovely friendly face, your first reaction is one of amazement. This is the most incredible collection of shells from all over the world. There are also other marine life on display. Well worth the visit. Don't be put off by the front door. Behind it is a hidden treasure. Absolutely loved it.

“Great collection enthusiastic staff”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

A little gem! Not well-signposted but you will find it on the main highway heading south from Margaret River. The lady & her husband who own the collection are very knowledgeable and no question is too much trouble for her. A lot more than seashells is to be seen here. Well worth the small admission fee.

“Seashell wonderland”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We rang the door bell and host Kath opened the door and welcomed us into her and husbands amazing experience. She was very informative and very friendly. It's an amazing thing to see over 40,000 different shells ranging from tiny to gigantic shells. In honesty,to me the words 'shell museum' isn't very appealing but wow was I wrong! A wonderful hobby that has spanned of 70 years of collection. If you have a little time or a lot of time on your hands,this place is well worth the visit and cost.
