Hi all Im in victoria, I'm a newbie and really struggling to figure out where i can and cannot detect. I have the exempted river/creeks list. I also know that most nation parks are out of bounds. All i can find is info that says most state parks are ok? How do i know for sure? Im headed up donnolly creek way soon for a week or so. I know donnollys creek is on the exempted list so does that actualy mean just down in the creek or the edge of it, the bank or what? So sorry if these are stupid questions. Is everywhere else around that area ok eg. White star, morning star area, o'tools ect. Im not expecting to find much im just out to learn and get familiar with my detector. Just worried about doing the wrong thing. Thanks in advance for your help

Have a good read through this.
http://earthresources.vic.gov.au/earth- … cess-rules
And this http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/visit/popular … fossicking

That area isn't really detector friendly, you'll find alluvial in the creeks but most of the gold in that area came from deep mining.

The golden triangle is better suited to detecting.

Thanks occasional_panner Ive read and printed out those two links. It just says "most state parks" are fine but i cant get to the bottom of the "most". how do i find out which ones precisely are not ok. We camp in state forrest mostly as we have dogs.

Im interested in coins and relics ect for the most part so was hoping there may be some of that up there in those areas more so than gold. I know there was lots of old townships up there and settlements up that way.

BS!

OK anything with park in the name you can't go, state or national.
State forest is ok to prospect in, providing that it does not contravene the exempted rivers list or any of these requirements

"Prohibited Crown land
Prohibited Crown land is land where recreational prospecting is banned and includes land that is:
a park under the National Parks Act 1975 including land that is a national, wilderness, State or other park or reserve or a marine national park or marine sanctuary, except in designated areas of specific parks under that Act (see Permitted Areas in Certain Parks under the National Parks Act);
a declared area for ongoing protection under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006;
a reference area under the Reference Areas Act 1978;
a Deep Lead Nature Conservation Reserve (No. 2) under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978;
an area exempted by the Minister for Energy and Resources or Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water; or
an area exempted from recreational prospecting or an extractive industry or otherwise exempted under the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 or any other Act."

And if you are unsure about a specific area call the earth resources centre http://earthresources.vic.gov.au/earth- … g/contacts

Just to add the parks link that Bigwave and I both gave are the parks that you can prospect in, BUT only in the areas marked on the attached maps.
Those are the only parks you can prospect in.

I noticed that the Goulburn River is on the exempt list, but many of the titles go to the centre of the river. Is it still exempt to detect the river on the private property with the land owner's permission?

Yes. Basically you'll probably find modern rubbish. If you hook up with the Count http://adventurermaps.com.au/maplist.htm
He'll let you in on some less known areas.

From my research reading - in Victoria (with a few exceptions) watercourses are Crown Land and not subject to freehold. Re the Goulburn River regardless of any abutting private land, prospecting, fossicking and mining operations are not permitted in this River.

That is run by Count Rudolf Paoletti, he knows that area very well. He'll want to sell you some maps, but he will also have you on the phone for an hour. He's a handy person to talk to.

You can use lots of different bits of equipment here, but the places you can use them are very restricted.
