On behalf of the Malacological Society, you are invited to attend and participate in the 18th Australian International Shell Show. The Malacological Society of South Australia Inc. (MSSA) is dedicated to fostering the study and appreciation of marine, land, freshwater and fossil molluscs.

2025 marks the 131st year of the MSSA's existence, and this will be the seventh time they have had the opportunity to host the annual shell show. They hope you will enjoy the opportunity to renew acquaintances from interstate and overseas, as well as the pleasure that will be experienced from viewing some of the world’s most beautiful and rare shells. It also presented an opportunity for collectors and researchers to expand their collections by swapping or buying those hard-to-come-by specimens.
