The Shellpins Story

The Shellpin is a mythical creature that dwells along the ocean edge of Surfers Paradise. They are a small gentle people with shell hats and a playful sense of whimsy.

As custodians of the ocean edge, Shellpins play an important role in reconnecting people to the natural seaside environment. Their messages are communicated through their mysterious stories of fun and adventure.

The emergence of the Shellpin legend has been linked to the rumoured discovery of an old chest. This chest was apparently unearthed during the excavation of foundations on a building site in Surfers Paradise during the late 1980's.
