"Amazing! I’ve never seen such a massive collection of beautiful rocks and minerals and really reasonably priced. My son, who is an avid rock collector, was in heaven. They have a great range of Tassie rocks too. If rocks are your thing this is a must do in Hobart."
"Friendly owner, excellent range and super organised. Would recommend to any collector of fossils or crystals/minerals."
"WOW! I am an experienced international wholesaler of crystals, rocks, minerals and fossils and I have seen many displays over the past 20 years or so and The BIG Tasmanian Rock Shop is as impressive as any of them. Tony and Mary have done a truly remarkable job. If you find yourself anywhere near New Norfolk, this place is well worth the visit."

If you are visiting Tasmania Maria Island is a 'must see' destination with so much geology, plants, wildlife and history to be seen. A day trip from Triabunna with a half hour ferry ride in each direction is a real treat. ... See MoreSee Less

I found this attractive white mineral this week at Pine Lake on the Central Plateau. Its name is Ice, or if you prefer dihydrogen monoxide. It is common in polar regions, although it is becoming less common as a consequence of global warming. We have some in the fridge at the rock shop if you need it for your collection. ...
