The next and last? Zeehan Gem & Mineral Fair 2018 October 24 2018
The 2018 Zeehan Gem & Mineral Fair is to be held again on the 10th & 11th of November, at the Primary School's sports stadium. Over fifteen years it has been run by a small and dedicated committee and a number of volunteers, and it has steadily grown to be a significant show in the Tasmanian calendar, for people interested in the world of minerals and fossils, in fossicking and lapidary work.
We have attended this show since it began, and are saddened to hear that this will be its final year (unless a new group of people take up the task and take over from the current committee). It has been our pleasure to join in the event, as we have often combined the trip west, with a few days of our own fossicking, which is always a form of R&R for us. The often wild west coastline, is wonderful to see.
The weekend event has always featured a wonderful fireworks display on the Saturday night on the sports oval, and the Fair always tried to provide for the local families, especially with free rides and other entertainment for children. We have appreciated the efforts of the committee in organising this annual event, both personally and for our business. The west coast has had a long history of mining, and a show of this sort is right for the region.
We invite all those with an interest, to attend this final Zeehan Gem & Mineral Fair. Our stall will be there,as usual, with minerals, Tasmanian stone jewellery, fossils, gems and facetted stones.
