A New Chapter in Auction Excellence

Building on the rich heritage of Moorabool Antiques, we are excited to announce the launch of Auctions at Moorabool. With decades of expertise in the antiques market, Moorabool Auctions is set to redefine the auction landscape.

Our inaugural sale, scheduled for June 1 in Geelong, will also be accessible globally via invaluable.com, allowing enthusiasts and collectors worldwide to participate. This event promises not only a diverse collection of unique items but also the meticulous cataloguing and detailed descriptions you’ve come to expect from Moorabool.

OldBank Auctions

Back in the 1990’s, Moorabool Antiques was asked to sell a client’s collection on their behalf. They produced the first of a series of auctions that lasted for a decade – OldBank Auctions, based in the historic ES&A bank in Malop Street, Geelong.

While OldBank held its last auction in 2004, Moorabool now finds itself in the same situation: a good customer has needed to sell his vast collection of quality Antiques and Art, mostly sourced from Moorabool Antiques over the past 60 years. Our first sale, and a few more beyond, will be populated by the pieces of this impressive collection.
