  • Plenty to see here. You can also visit the factory where everything is made. Great for tourists to pick up anything to take back home. Helpful friendly staff.
  • Fascinating, didn't know there was so much to learn about paua.Well worth the visit.
  • Great spot to shop with a variety of NZ goods from local people also.you can buy a cuppa for $2 it cold drink for $3.50 and see a video on how they collect paua or take it outside to the picnic area. Children playground, picnic tables, rubbish bins and toilets are onsite for you to enjoy. Fantastic helpful staff to assist.
  • With all the advertising they do I assumed it was a tourist attraction and something to see, it's only a gift shop!! I wouldn't recommend people make a special trip to go there.
  • A turist trap in my view, but if you are into sea shells with nice colored patterned. You should go here.
