Emmaville Gemfest

The Emmaville Gemfest and Swap Meet is coming up soon.  Run as a fundraiser for the Emmaville Mining Museum, this is a great little show for people who like to mix their gem shows with a bit of hands-on fossicking.

Emmaville Mining Museum Gemfest

Field trips will be run for tin, topaz, flourite, quartz, silver, tourmaline and copper.  Field trips cost $5 for half days or $10 for full days and leave from the Caravan Park.

Barbeque will be run at the caravan park for the 3 days and there will be market stalls and tailgaters present offering some great gems and minerals.  You might even catch Aussie Sapphire there on Saturday and/or Sunday.
