  • Geebung Museum - QLD | hrfoundation

    Geebung Museum - QLD The SHRF Geebung Museum ​ The collection is currently relocating due to sale of building. New premises are still being sought in Queensland. Geebung Museum Australia is a vast country with population centres thousands of kilometres apart in different States. As the main Archives of the Sir Henry Royce Foundation are housed in Melbourne Victoria, it was decided that Sub-Archives be established in Queensland. In Brisbane, items with special Queensland provenance will be housed along with any copies of archival material from Melbourne. Details of all Queensland catalogued items are forwarded to the Archivist for the central database of the SHRF. All items are subject to the same archival and cataloguing policies and procedures as the main SHRF Archive. The SHRF has legal ownership of all the material under the care of the curator of the Geebung premises, but all these materials will remain in Queensland for display as the core Sub-Archive, Queensland. The Geebung Museum was opened on 2 June 2018 with Frank Carroll, Russell Rolls and Curator, Barry Sparks, giving the opening address. The doors were officially opened by Queensland MP Bart Mellish. It has five rooms of books and technical displays, various engines displayed in the front showroom, the Royce room, the Bentley room, tools and equipment and a TV room plus several bookshelves and cabinets of memorabilia. Car clubs and other interest groups regularly visit. The arrival of Rolls-Royce Chassis No.1492 was a very special day for the Museum.

Items accepted into the Foundation will be assessed and housed in specialist, secure storage, in accordance with the Foundation's collection documentation and preservation policies. The principal archives and collection is housed in Melbourne in either the Bill Allsep House or Lionel Gell School of Instruction. Sub - archives are also in the Coolum Showroom, Queensland for donations or for duplicated items. If there are several copies of a donated item within the Foundation’s collection e.g. publications, then the Foundation may sell them. The same applies to a donated vehicle or car body if it is duplica ted or of non-archival importance. How can I get my memorabilia to the Foundation? The archivist will advise you the best way for its transport. It may be posted, delivered or collected depending on the size and weight. Will my donation go on display? The Foundation will endeavour to display donated items with a descriptive label and name of donor where appropriate. Can the Foundation provide a valuation for my items? The Sir Henry Royce Foundation cannot provide valuations of your items. As a registered Charity, the SHRF abides by the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts program. Your donated item will need to be valued by an approved expert valuer in the relevant field. The SHRF can assist you with commencing this process. ​Does the Memorial buy items? The Sir Henry Royce Foundation does not purchase material for its collection. Valuation of Museum Items For a tax deduction to be available on items donated to The Foundation, such items must be valued, independently, by two valuers nominated by the Australia Taxation Office. It is important to note that these valuations are undertaken against the background of the Federal Government’s Cultural Gifts Program and take into account the “cultural value” of the item as well as its “commercial value”. It is the policy of the Trustees that The Foundation carries the donated item as an asset in the Balance Sheet at the valuation determined by the Australian Taxation Office under the Cultural Gifts Program. This policy reflects the fact that The Foundation is a registered charitable foundation whose objectives include, inter alia, “the advancement of the science and technology of mechanical engineering for public benefit and the advancement of education”. Further, these objectives note that “the collection policy is to collect, document and exhibit objects especially related to the work of Sir Henry Royce”. It is entirely appropriate; therefore, that The Foundation’s assets are formally valued at a “cultural valuation” rather than a “commercial valuation”. This policy meets with the approval of The Foundation’s Honorary Auditor. Privacy Policy Please click here to view the SHRF Privacy Policy.

  • About | hrfoundation

    About the Foundation The Inspiration In all his designs Sir Henry Royce (1863-1933) demonstrated an attention to detail never previously seen in the automotive and aeronautical worlds. His motto was his engineering standard: Quidvis recte factum quamvis humile præclarum (Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble). ‘Rightly done’ are the key words in the Rolls-Royce ethos, and there are many fine examples of Royce’s determination to strive for perfection. He was also guided by the philosophy: ‘Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it.’ Establishment of the Foundation The Sir Henry Royce Foundation was created from a discussion at the 1995 Federal Rally of the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia. It was proposed that a stand-alone body be created to preserve the heritage of the past in relation to items manufactured by Rolls-Royce and Bentley, the history of the Founders (Sir Henry Royce, The Hon C.S. Rolls and W.O. Bentley), and all printed material relating to the Company’s automobiles and aircraft engines. It all started when David here for full story .
