I haven't been out there for a few months now but the last time I was out there it was flooding pretty hard so I'll definitely be getting back out there some time soon to see if the water has freed up some nuggets big_smile .

Hi GB
Plenty of spots to camp along the creeks or you can camp next to bullumwaal hall with toilet and creek right behind and there is a good spot down the end of Fred wicks track off Mia Mia road
Cheers

Hi grant

Thanks for your reply. Looking forward to getting up there tomorrow and having a look around. Went to depthford last year but not a lot of luck so fingers crossed

This is where I was working the other day (right near that campsite).

If you're interested I can PM you a map with the site marked.

Hi Kingsy, my partner and I have been going to Bullumwaal for a couple of months now but have not come across this spot you have posted photos of.......looks like a beautiful spot. Would you mind sharing where this actually is please? We've been down a few tracks and they have been nothing like this lol.
We are fairly new to prospecting so would appreciate as much help/advice as possible wink

Thanks heaps,
Lesley

The track is dead end. You have to walk down to the river. Its of Mia Mia Rd as G69 said.

Hi Guys,

Good to hear from like minded individuals in my area and not the only one that almost runs off the road to have a good look at a rock cutting!

I'm about an hour from this spot and pretty green when it comes to prospecting and identifying likely ground but am keen to give it a go. I've only done a small amount of detecting/treasure hunting and am mostly doing research to give panning a crack in the spring. Next time anyones heading up, I'd be happy to run into a few of you, otherwise I'll give the heads up when I'm next heading that way. There must be a lot of water going through there with over 100mm in the last few days.

I'm a keen fisho having covered many streams in East Gippy and now racking my brains for likely streams I've fished and little tributaries bypassed and I've made a list of likely streams to explore..I reckon this will keep me busy for a while!

Cheers,

Luke

Hi tom, I reckon the previous pages of this thread are a good start. Plenty of historical info out there on the area north of Bruthen/Buchan and I'm keen to test pan some streams not mentioned in historical notes. I'm also interested in prospecting the rocky ridges (providing the right geology) of valleys known to contain the good stuff as I doubt many people have even walked some of these parts. A long shot and perhaps a dream I know, but would love to stumble upon something special up in the hills....keen to head up bullumwaal way for a scout and to hone my panning/detecting skills in a known area once this weather sorts itself out! Have always been interested but never made the time for it...time for a change.

Hey Guys,

Thanks heaps for responding to my post. Sorry I didn't reply sooner, was in Melbourne with Mum as she was admitted to hospital after having a fall.
Finally found the spot that you guys directed me to.....absolutely beautiful......BUT, I have not seen so much water in Boggy Creek for I don't know how long!!!!!!
No panning there for awhile sad
Finding this spot today really made my day!
We love going out to Bullumwaal just to check out some areas on a Sunday......looking forward to the better months when we can start panning again wink

Thanks again guys, love this site!

Lesley smile

Hi Guys,

Just thought I'd let you know I went up for a scout around Bullumwaal today. Was mainly checking the creek levels and having a general look as I'd only been through there once before and couldn't remember the lay of the land. Considering the recent rain, the creeks were not flowing hard at all..so they must really dry up in the summer months I'm guessing. Looking forward to a day or two up there with a few of you guys for a scratch around when this winter weather starts to turn.

Cheers,

Luke

I am looking at a metal detector at present But I wonder is it worth searching around Bullamwaal area or am I wasting my time in this area

Some people are just 'a-holes' with no respect. Pigs...
Good on you for cleaning up their mess, mate.
It is beautiful down there - been too long since I've been to south east Gippy.
Must make another trip soon.
Cheers,
Megsy
