The Big Shell

THE BIG SHELL has CLOSED its retail operation.

Online store opening soon.

Follow us on Instagram the_big_shell  to keep informed of special treasures for sale and the launch of our online store.

Born in the swinging sixties, The Big Shell has stood proudly in its riverside location at Tewantin for six decades. Established by the Anderson family of early Noosa, the operation of the iconic Queensland landmark has had only two more owners since first opening.

The building has now been sold and all the shells and paraphernalia packed up in preparation for The Big Shell’s exciting new future online.

All the things you loved about the old Big Shell;  wonders of the sea in a riot of colour, shells, coral, vintage items, collectables and all things coastal will soon be available again in our new online store.


Amazing Shells, Beautiful Corals, Fossils,
Coastal Decor, Vintage Pieces,
and Everything Ocean.
