Victorian Branch & Bulletins


We meet throughout the year at the Melbourne Camera Club located at the corner of Dorcas & Ferrars Streets South Melbourne at 8pm.

2018 Meetings are as follows:

  • April 16: Five favourite self-collected shells
  • June 18: Ten shells from your favourite family
  • Aug 20:  Range extensions of unusual locations
  • Oct 15:  Angus Hawke will speak on fossils
  • Nov 19:  Christmas meeting and ‘mega’ buy/swap/sell

Each meeting will also be an opportunity to trade or sell any shells or books. So come along -you never know what you might find, and the more people who attend the better!

As a member of the Malacological Society of Australasia you will receive our Branch Bulletin bi-monthly, 4 issues of Australian Shell News per year as well as the society’s journal each year.

We always welcome new members and visitors.
