McMillan Rockhounds Inc was
formed in 1966 by a group of local Gippsland people with a common interest in collecting
stones, rocks and minerals from around the Maffra district. These
days members collect from all over Australia.
Within a couple of hours' drive from Maffra it is possible to collect
thunder eggs, quartz crystals, agates, jasper, ryolite, marble, petrified
wood, opalised wood, gold and fossils.
Our members are interested in all aspects of rockhounding, such
as faceting, jewellery making, tumbling, slabbing, polishing, mineral collecting
(including micromounts), gold panning, metal detecting and fossil collecting.
We conduct field trips and run classes for for club
members and the general public.
