The DVD containing a documentary movie about the collection produced by Tony Gordon, states that "The Ted Elliott Mineral Collection" is "Australia's Premier Mineral Collection, Brilliantly Captured, Digitally Mastered" in "Widescreen". The collection covers various areas including "The Etheridge", "Regional Minerals", "Queensland Mines", "Precious Metals", "Australian Mines", Overseas Minerals", a "Fossil Room" and "Rough and Smooth".
I can state that when I visited Georgetown, without a doubt the Ted Elliott Collection at the Terrestrial Centre is an absolute must see. The below images are just some of the displays there to be seen. Click on below images for a larger view. More information about the area can be found at www.gulf-savannah.com.au.
