Gem of a Partnership
We are delighted to announce that we are hosting the Batemans Bay Lapidary Club, following bush-fire destruction of its former home in Mogo’s original Gold Rush Colony.

Their cabinet displays are located in our Geology Exhibitions room, and space provided so they can continue to wield their tools and reveal the beauty of engraving, cutting, or polishing stones and gems.

They hold workshops and fossicking trips, and
we are very excited to have them around.
Another reason to visit!  Just click on the image above to visit their website.
