The Gallaway-Gore collection consists of a number of objects, including a sword and scabbard, a family bible and prayer book, several framed portraits, and a number of family papers including letters, deeds, wills, birth and marriage certificates pertaining to the Gore-Gallaway family.

There is a long history of achievement among the generations of the Gore-Gallaway family, including three generations of maritime service, from Captain John Gore senior, who sailed with Captain James Cook on the Endeavour, his son Rear Admiral John Gore junior, who migrated to Australia and settled the property 'Gilmour' near Lake Bathurst, to his grandson Graham Gore, who was lost on the Franklin expedition. This history, as well as the family's subsequent experiences on 'Gilmour', are documented within the collection.
