The historic village of Emmaville in the Glen Innes Highlands is home to the Emmaville Mining Museum, the dream of Mr and Mrs Jack Curnow who ran the Emmaville bakery.
After closing the bakery in 1969, they used the shop to display their vast collection of minerals and photographs. Their collection was bequeathed to the community in the hope that the town could start a museum.
Today, the museum houses a number of significant collections. In all, there are over 4,000 mineral and gem specimens in addition to the beautiful 1,500 bottle collection.
View the replica miner’s hut and blacksmith’s shop, more than 200 historical photographs and bottle collections, all the nostalgia of the past in Foley’s general store.
