See Shells - Rare & Beautiful Shells On Display.

Rare and beautiful shells from around the world will be on display to the public at the New Zealand Shell Show - to be held at Toitū Pōneke Community and Sports Centre, Kilbirnie Park on 1 & 2 December 2018.

This opportunity only comes to Wellington every 4 years and the Show will feature competitive and educational displays of NZ and world-wide shells – also shells, shell art, books and craft materials for sale. The Show is very affordable and enjoyable for all ages.

The shells on display will range from tiny to huge, will come from our local beaches and from special, remote places around the world, and will be every colour of the rainbow.

The NZ Shell Show is organised by the Wellington Shell Club, a group of enthusiasts who have been organising shell shows since 1995. It is a not-for-profit club established in 1955 and associated with Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand.

The Club aims to encourage knowledge about & enthusiasm for shells, in a friendly atmosphere. Its members come from all over the Wellington region & further afield, including overseas. Some members travel widely to pursue their enthusiasm for shells & some are significant winners at overseas shell shows.

More information about the New Zealand Shell Show and the Wellington Shell Club is available at the website.
