There is a forthcoming Public Auction on 9th August of items from the comprehensive Michael's Cameras Museum after the store's closure.
Michael's started as a pharmacy but over several generations became Melbourne's premier quality photographic store with knowledgable staff behind the counters, and a large array of still and motion camera gear and accessories, including new and second hand, and hire and repair departments, and a wonderful museum.
They also had display galleries, seminar rooms for talks and product launches.
Unfortunately they have closed, and having failed to have their museum accepted by the Melbourne Museum into their collections, are auctioning all its precious contents.
Here's a link to an on-line flip catalogue.
I'm sure that bids from anywhere in the world would be welcomed, and the Australian dollar is pretty low against other currencies right now. Indicative prices are all in AU$, and rules on absentee bidding are outlined in the catalogue.
Here's the flip catalogue link:

Even if not a prospective buyer, it's worth a look.

I guess it is also good to link to the auctions page here: https://www.leski.com.au/auction/michaels-camera-museum/

This seems just to be the first part.

Thanks Addy for the Leski Auctions site link.
Yes, the 9th August is just part 1 of several auctions that will clear the considerable stocks of cameras and related items from this sadly now defunct museum.
