Hi mate
I have not heard of any restrictions on QLD beaches.
Moreton bay council and their local laws department are also unaware of any restrictions for beach hunting.. Here you do not need a fossicing permit unless you are in a GPA or using a pan or sluce on unoccupied land....
Use common sence when detecting parks.
If it's a manicured lawn, stay away .
Also don't carry a shovel , use a small had digger or screw driver and practice how to do recover the target with minimal damage to the grass.
Council doesn't mine you detecting , as long as you leave no sign of damage to the ground...
Best bet is go early like I do .
That way you never see anyone. thumbsup


No pain No gain..

Good decision.
The Nox 800 would be one of the top coin and relic machine on the market .....As good as the dues, and not far behind the CTX in my personal opinion.
Good luck out there hope you find heaps. thumbsup

Don't dig during droughts.... the 4D rule.
The grass doesn't ever recover properly , and even fill your holes back in on the beach... nothin worse than an ugly beach after someones dug open holes everywhere (tripping danger too).
And remember the first nation people everytime you dig into the ground (only remove new age things.... leave the ancient stuff where it was, as it's all important to someone through out time). smile


What a great day ! ,... " I'll see you in the field ".

Yeah.... always a chance of an artifact as a consequence any time you dig a hole.
80000+ years here.....not long till we find out it's over a million years+ I'll bet tongue
