    The souvenir shop is very large and has many different things made of Paua or other materials. We were there on the weekend, you can make the tour of the factory but only during the week. However, the two ladies at the counter were very friendly and gave us some tips for excursions. The prices are not overpriced and everything is a bit rustic

    We arrived late in the afternoon, so we only had a quick look around, but they have all things Paua. They have some lovely jewellery and a playground out the back for the kids.  more »

  • Touristic store, quite expensive, friendly staff. My opinion that the whole idea of Paua shells is over rated. Still worth visiting for once at least.
  • Advertisements highly exaggerated and raised our expectations too high, only to be rather disappointed. Very small playground, wouldn't entertain a 7 year old for more than 10 minutes. Reasonably ( some high-ish) priced products, but nothing out of the ordinary. Not worth driving long distances for - seemed a lot like every other New Zealand souvenir shop to us. Will not be going again in a hurry
  • I visited twice from Germany. Very nice shop, you can get beautiful paua shells.
  • A great place for me to buy birthday and Christmas presents. Always find the right gift. Friendly and helpful stsff
  • Friendly staff and very reasonably priced Kiwiana gifts the shop was an online store too.
