Powelltown
« on: February 20, 2020, 10:23:24 PM »
Hi folks, we are heading from Newcastle NSW to the Great Ocean Rd in a few days, we will be going through Powelltown on the way home so if you have any tips on fossicking locations that are accessible I'd appreciate it. We are towing a van so can't go down tracks etc. This will sadly just be for a few hours on one day as we are strapped for time. Cheers :)

Hi Missyp,


If you can't drive down tracks at Powelltown, sadly your not going to find much, all the places I know of around Powelltown are all tracks off the main road with not a lot of places to turn around especially with a caravan!

Hi,
You could always unshackle, park up & drive in for some hours of fossicking.
Cheers,

I've seen people park their van up by the toilets near the pub, there is a large parking area there. Hope that helps
