Robert and Margaret Gaston started collecting tins in 2005 and then opened Tin Heads in 2009 for the public to see their huge collection, which continues to grow.
What started out as a small hobby has turned into the biggest collections of tins in Australia. Robert and Margaret now have over 8500 tins, with every kind of tin you can think of.
They are open every second Sunday of each month or by appointment. The cost to see this amazing collection is just a gold coin donation to the Heart Foundation. They are located at 80 Beattie Road, Waggrakine.
Tin Heads are members of the Geraldton Visitor Centre and have tours going through all year round.
One tour that went through recently was Gallivanting Oz, who are a Motorhome and Campervan Hire company, and will travel around with you if you aren’t comfortable going out on your own.
When Gallivanting Oz were recently travelling with 5 couples in 5 vans, they came through Geraldton and when looking for things to do they found Tin Heads and had to have a look at this huge collection to believe it for themselves. And they weren’t disappointed, and said they would be back with future tours.
If you want to book a tour through Tin Heads, you can call Robert and Margaret on 9938 3200.
