Great day out bush!
Great day out bush.

Had a great time!
Tried the 1-day prospecting tour. Got picked up at Hannan street by Dean. Was an option to rent detectors but we had our own (since we had plans to keep trying fossicking by our self later). Had a great time, even though we didn't find anything except led and iron. And we got a lot of information about how to set up the detectors and Tengraph/GeoView.

Would recommend trying the tour even though you don't plan to start fossicking on your own, especially if you are from Europe like us. Just being out in the bush for a day was great.

Everything you want knows about gold prospecting or to purchase prospecting equipment whether to just potter around or try to be more serious, these people are the ones to talk to.
