« on: April 09, 2021, 03:50:29 PM »
Hi guys
We are travelling to queensland and won’t be able to go fossicking ourselves
But wondering if anyone has been anywhere that can we purchase ‘wash’ and have the kids go through ? Looking Brisbane/ Gold Coast area
Thanks heaps

Not sure if there's any available in the S.E. area, you could contact one of the 'pay to dig' sites in the Central Qld Gemfields to see if they have an outlet close to you. There are a number in that area, a couple I have used are 'Armfest' and 'Pat's Gems', both have wash for sale.
Common sense isn't exactly common

Try " Lost Treasure" Camping shop at Everton Park... They usually have Bags of wash from Central QLD Gemfields.... Call them first as I think they are out of stock due to the Floods up there last month...

I swing a 12-pound hammer,smash gibbers by the ton
I used to think it convict work,but now i think it's FUN
