Hi undertaker,
The answer to your question is YES; do some research on the area and you will be surprised what you will find, a real education and very interesting.
Cheers, SinHof.

Jim - You might try stieglitz or Bacchus Marsh. plenty of pretty yellow stuff there. Spread quite thinly unfortunately, but I have never gone home empty handed entirely.

Cheer, Len

There is gold in Barrington tops apparently and even a mine you can do a tour of but the whole area is a no go for panning as far as I know.

The road signs pointing to Avoca (Vic) appear to have a "do" added at the end, so I think they've changed the town name to "Avocado"? You may want to correct your list smile
There's also Rushworth, Whroo (ghost-town with Balaclava Mine), Heathcote, Maldon, Creswick, St Arnaud, Bealiba, Talbot, Tarnagulla, Inglewood, Irishtown, Kingower, Fryerstown, Daylesford, Trentham etc

Davejane, there is a thread on here talking about the newly proclaimed fossicking area at Barrington Tops. Haven't read it myself, but it runs a few pages so might be some good info in it.
