The Herberton Mining Museum History Association Inc. (HMMHA) was formed as an incorporated organisation in February 2020 to support the operations of the museum and collection management. The association operates from the Herberton Mining Museum as its home, but can have members that are directly associated with HMC and also outside members. Its finances are managed independently, through its executive committee, from the Tablelands Regional Council which is the formal owner of the Herberton Mining Museum. HMMHA operates under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tablelands Regional Council. The HMMHA are proud to have secured funding from the Mount Emerald Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund for the creation of this website. We hope you find it an informative introduction to pique your interest in the museum, local walking tracks, our research activities and the history of Herberton.
The objects of the Association, as defined in its constitution, are to support the endeavours of the Herberton Mining Museum, including, but not limited to the below. Material that HMMHA collects is donated to the Museum Collections.
Active volunteers at the Herberton Mining Museum are automatically entitled to apply for free membership of HMMHA. Other members of the public can apply for membership where an annual membership fee of $20 applies. Download application for membership here. Meetings are held quarterly in conjunction with the monthly volunteers meeting in that month. The AGM is held in November each year.
Our newsletter which highlights events and activities at the Herberton Mining Centre and the Herberton Mining Museum History Association is published quarterly. View our latest newsletter.
Significant financial donations to HMMHA are acknowledged on our honour board in the Herberton Mining Centre Visitor Information Centre.
