Our Club Collection

View our showcases of gemstones and minerals at Batemans Bay Heritage Museum!

This includes showcases donated by the Melton family, a showcase and mineral collection donated by The Original Gold Rush Colony and our latest collection and showcase donated by Joe Schuck!

We’ve installed the 4th display case to house the club’s ever growing collection. Our latest donation, a magnificent show case and comprehensive collection, was from Joe Schuck! Thankyou Joe, we treasure these!

Thankyou also to Myf and the museum volunteers for assisting us with this!

A wonderful donation from Barrie!

Have a look at this lot of beautiful agates that were donated to our club by Barrie and Jennie. Barrie has recently finished polishing this collection of 150 agates and thunder eggs.

Thank you very much Barrie!!!


 The return of Aboriginal Artifacts

Pictured with our club president Max, is Rod Slockee, a Walbunja person. Rod is here being presented with some artifacts which were collected some years ago by the late husband of Val Byrne, in the Lake George area of NSW. Rod will return these items to the representatives of the Pejar Umalla people from the Goulburn area.
