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.

We meet on a Wednesday and also have micro meetings some Saturdays of every month (excepting December) Check the calendar for day and start times of meetings and check our facebook page for latest information.
Our meeting rooms have changed recently but at present are the YMCA vocational school - 2-10 Mannington Road Acacia Ridge, Brisbane, Qld

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.

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.
