The raw and natural beauty of Noosa is certainly one of the focal points for both locals and tourists of the area.
The combination of fresh sea breeze, pristine beaches and lush rainforest make for a unique holiday destination and it’s usually in the small coastal towns that you often find understated shops and boutiques.
The Big Shell, an iconic and much-loved store in Noosa, will have you walking through a five metre high shell at the entrance leading you into a room full of all things shells and ocean.
You’ll no doubt find yourself entranced while surrounded by wonderful shells, extraordinary corals, select shell art, home wares, imported Hawaiian fabrics, vintage surfboards, and a myriad of beachside collectables from all over Australia.
The huge clams, shark teeth and sting ray jaws are always a favourite, while the kids will love spotting the real Nemo Clownfish and other bright tropical fish.
It’s one of the only places in Noosa where you’ll find authentic shells and keepsakes for you to take home your own little piece of Noosa.
The Big Shell is situated at 87 Gympie St. Tewantin, and is open Thursday to Monday, 10am-5pm.
