Not sure what the info centre at Stanthorpe is like. That is if they are supportive of fossickers... I vaguely remember some topaz fossicking area reopened or something... ?  Someone else might know something...   If you can get your hands on some info of the old tin mine dumps localities, that'll be a good place to try for gemstones and crystal... One of the gem n treasure mags had an article on Stanthorpe that maybe useful too...
