Hi Maria, how did you go with the rock saw? I am actually looking to buy something similar.
Thanks, Missy.

Fossicking Locations / Re: Fossicking from Coffs to Byron

We recently went for a drive up there and there was nothing much in the creeks, I was hoping for jasper or quartz. I guess it may depend where you go as its a big area. Had a nice time up the coast. Found some agate..yay! Also the beaches above Coffs were full of jasper and quartz so that was a bonus. I have taken photos of my treasures lol.

Thanks MrSydney, figured as much but worth an ask. We are sticking to the coast road this time but once we get up to Byron, I'm hoping we can head in the direction of Mt Warning. Of course this hinges on the non-fossicking half being willing lol. We live only an hour from Gloucester and have had a look around up there.

Hi ALFers hubby and I are going to hook up the van on Friday and head up the NSW North coast from Newcastle. I'd be grateful for any fossicking info between Coffs and Byron. Any type of rocks, I'm not fussy haha.

General Discussion / Melbourne Rock Shops?
« on: March 15, 2018, 09:14:33 AM »
Hi Folks, I am heading to Melbourne CBD for a few days and was wondering if there are any rock shops or the like in the city. I have looked online and apart from a couple of crystal/metaphysical places, there doesn't seem to be any. We won't have a car and Mr Grumbles won't want to travel out of the city so any recommendations would be appreciated.

I went to Frazers Creek where the concrete causeway is in November. Is this the area relating to the post? Dug around for ages with no result, went back to the car to get me specs and bugger me...a little blue fella right beside the wheel of the car!

Thanks for the info Mr Sydney. Not much of a gold person, probably because I suck at panning haha. Would be more into the small crystals at hanging rock and if you have a location of interest in Uralla I would appreciate it as our time is unfortunately limited to one day at each location. My man in Inverell is a seasoned rock kicker so I think he has the goods on where to go. Mainly again, looking at quartz crystals but if a pretty blue stone were to fall in my lap...well I would be pretty happy! Will give you guys the update upon my return...if hubby and I survive a week in the caravan together ;)

Hi all, I'm heading to catch up with a mate in Inverell next week and thought I may get some tips from you folks. Thus far we are going to Nundle, Walcha, Uralla, Guyra and across to Inverell via Tingha. The home run is from there to Mann River Caravan Park on the Gwydir Hwy, Grafton, Nambucca and back home. I have done a little research so I know there are various things that can be found at Nundle. Any tips on the other towns would be great. My mate is taking me crystal hunting once I hit Inverell so cross fingers for me. Cheers, Mel

Awesome, thanks Mr Sydney. Our club members are going to Coalcliff this weekend, unfortunately ill health prevents me from going but they should come up with some nice fossils etc.

Thanks everyone, very helpful. If there are any creeks nearby I will check them out. Went to Alligator Creek when I was in Townsville in May and picked up two rocks (Mum was waiting in the car so I had like 5 mins lol) and one turned out to be a poppy jasper, the other petrified palm. Yes, Mother is coming with me again so any fossicking time will be very limited as she is at the other end of the spectrum when it comes to rock kicking. If I find anything of interest I will let you know. :)

General Discussion / Fossicking tips for Cairns/Trinity Beach area.

Hi Folks, I'm heading to Trinity Beach just north of Cairns in a few weeks. Just wondering if anyone knows some fossicking locations nearby that are worth a try. Ideally not more than half hour drive. Also if you know of any worthwhile sightseeing that isn't suggested on visitor info sites. Thanks in advance :)

Thanks Findem, you saved me a two hour drive on a whim lol. I will definitely check out the info you provided. Looking at the weather forecast I might just stick to Tuena, been getting some nice jasper up there. :)

Thanks Gemster, at least I'm not losing my marbles here. Yes I tried all kinds of combinations, including Princes Highway, Wollongong, Dapto etc. From memory the bloke was digging up crystals at the side of the Princes Hwy near Dapto, I was hoping to get a better, perhaps more precise location. Might have to get the 4wd out and head up to Tuena instead lol
