The City of Greater Geelong is the proud owner of thousands of heritage objects and artworks and collectively these are of significant cultural and social value.
The City of Greater Geelong Heritage Collection is made up of key collections including the
National Wool Museum, the Outdoor Collection (Public Art, Monuments and
Memorials), Geelong Maritime Museum and the Council Art & Artefact
Some of the highlights in the collection include artworks by Edward
Snell from 1852 and more recent works by the well-known Robert Ingpen. Unique
and valuable objects include the exquisite Mayoral Chains from the former
municipalities of South Barwon, Newtown and Geelong West. Across the collection
there are historic clocks, sister city gifts, ceremonial spades, robes and many
more. There is even a Geelong Council Mayoral Chair from 1860.
Please join us at the National Wool Museum - Auction Room on Thursday 12 September 6 – 8pm for our
community stakeholder workshop – contributing to the development of a Strategic Plan for the Management and
Interpretation of Geelong’s Heritage Collections. A light dinner
will be served.
