Bingara Gem and Mineral Museum

The Bingara Historical Museum Complex comprises several buildings other than the Museum itself.  One houses an extensive photo collection which the Bingara District Historical Society has catalogued and another houses a fascinating collection which comprises fossils, minerals (Australia wide), sea shells and birds eggs.

A sign Gil “GOLDFINGER” Craig’s Gem and Mineral Museum takes pride of place on the centre wall as you enter the museum as it was Gil Craig, a local geologist, who donated the majority of the collection to the museum.

HJ Fay Bingara Bottle

A great example of some fascinating finds in the museum is this bottle made for H J Fay, Bingara.  It is no ordinary bottle, the top is sealed bar a few holes which released the liquid and in the neck of the bottle sits a marble.  The only way to access the marble was to break the bottle.
