A large number of Clubs and societies exist in Australia that cater for Lapidary, Fossil collection, Gold prospecting and similar interests. As I get a lot of requests for information on these clubs as well as Mineral collection clubs, I shall attempt to keep an up-to-date register here. (If readers pick up errors, or if you would like your club or group included on this page, please email the web master with your details).
