From Dot and Dave who own the Agate Creek Camp Ground and Old Robin Hood Station, so nearest camping would be Cobold Gorge as not allowed on the fossicking area


We wish to advise ‘Agate Creek Camping Ground’ will be closed as of the 30th March due to the severe health issues currently facing our Country.
 We thank-you for your understanding & look forward to seeing you again in 2021

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

If Gemorama is not cancelled I'll be there unless they cancel the border lockdown with Qld then I may venture part of the way into the wilds

Currently, there's a surprising large amount of visitors driving around up here.
What their finding is most destinations are shut down, local shops have limited stock and have purchase restrictions in place.
My suggestion is set the camper up in your local town and do the whole back yard tourist thing.
Then of course next year go dig a hole twice as big.

Same happening everywhere. All Tasmanian national parks and reserves shut and government is telling all visitors to leave the state by Sunday night.

Closed area: All parks and reserves closedFrom 26/3/2020, last reviewed 26/3/2020
​Following advice from the Tasmania Department of Health and Tasmanian Government that our community should limit unnecessary travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, the PWS has closed all national parks, reserves and campgrounds until further notice.
The PWS is calling on Tasmanian’s to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay home during this time.
From midnight Thursday 26 March, PWS is temporarily closing all national parks, reserves, campgrounds and facilities to recreational and tourism use. This means that all day walks, mountain biking, fishing and tours will not be permitted.  Washrooms, day use facilities, showers and visitor centres are closed until further notice.​

Encouraging ants to social distance.  Found them in some small bags of agates I had in the shed.

Relocated agates to trays outside.

Waiting for the rain to make them clean then sorting time.   :)
Shall be by colour at the start.  Other variations as year goes by.

Hope I do not go stir crazy
