Finding Gold and Gemstones in Australia

Fossicking in Australia

One great way to support your working holiday in Australia is to fossick for Gold, Diamonds, Emeralds, Zircon,Sapphires, Topaz, Aquamarine, Smokey Quarts and other Gemstones in the rich creekbeds and landscapes of Australia. It's also a lot of fun, and not that hard as you will see in the video below. Thanks to Liz and Wal for producing this video. They are 2 of the most experienced fossickers in Australia and love to share their passion.


Fossicking Sites 

There are nurmerous locations you can go to all over Australia and fossicking for zircon, sapphires, gold, and diamonds can have you zig-zagging all over the country.

 Some excellent locations to add to your list are the towns of Mount Surpries, Sapphire and Emerald in Queensland - known as the Gemfields where beginners can hire some essential equipment and get advice from the Blue Hollow Mine.

Other popular sites are Coober Pedy in South Australia, Inverell, Glenn Innes and Oberon in NSW, Killercrankie Bay Tasmania , and the more remote areas like Harts Range in the Northern Territory.
