Our Society:

The society currently has over 70 members and is based in Brisbane, Queensland. Its members predominately come from South-East Queensland, but we have quite a few members from northern New South Wales.

MinSoc Qld meetings are usually held on the last Wednesday of each month, excepting December, when an end-of-year BBQ is held instead. The meeting venue is the Garden City Library located in the northern end of the Garden City Shopping complex.

There is free parking within the complex AFTER 5.30pm. (Else you will pay shopping centre parking rates). The library is on the top level 4 with a lift between the cinema building and the multilevel carpark (facing Logan road). Entry to the meeting room is through the after hours door passed the main Library door. This door is locked at 7.30pm to allow all members to be at the meeting.

Most meetings are well attended, and have stereo microscopes available for mineral viewing and identification. Guest speakers frequently attend, and a 'Mineral of the Month' session enables members to become better acquainted with various mineral species.

Committee Meetings are help prior to the General Meeetings

We have a keen micro mineral group ('Micromob') who also meet regularly to view and discuss micro minerals. (see calendar for details)

The 'Australian Mineral Collector' Internet site has been sponsored for the past 24 years, and aims to make the hobby more educational and accessible.
