Please contact us if you would like to know more about our sponsorship or benefactor programs. You may choose to support a particular aspect of the Australian Opal Centre (for example the opal and fossil acquisition fund, building fund, education and learning programs, opal cutting workshop, research laboratory, marketing or another area of particular interest to you), or you may allow us to direct your support to where it is most needed.
This spectacular and fascinating public collection is being built by the people of the opal fields and people everywhere who have been touched by opal or the spirit of opal field life. If you have something that you think may belong in the Australian Opal Centre, where it can be cared for and shared with all people in perpetuity, please contact us to discuss what you may have to offer. Potential collection items include:
- Opal from anywhere in the world
- Opalised fossils
- Old photographs, newspaper or magazine clippings
- Film or sound recordings
- Tools, equipment, machinery or other artefacts
- Relics of opal field life
- Books and reprints for our research library
- High-quality palaeontological casts or models
If you have skills that may be of value to the Australian Opal Centre, please contact us and let us know what you have in mind.
There’s something for everyone. Join the Australian Opal Centre team – you’ll love it!
