Hi guys.

Just wondering if anyone can tell me if you're allowed to prospect around Majors creek (NSW)?
I usually stick to state forests to avoid having to try and work out what crown land I am and am not aloud on as it can get quite difficult.

Cheers, Anthony.

After more research, it seems to be mostly conservation area around there. So am I right in assuming that means no prospecting?

First off, it's within a fossicking district, so no worries about clashing with mining titles AFAIK.

Second, here's two screen grabs from Google Earth. Green is National Park/Conservation, red is Crown land. (I took two grabs because they overlap)

I don't know what crown land might be leased, but there is some info on this site if you search for it. I believe walking Northish from Cemetery Rd between Major's Ck and Araluen was a possibility.

I'd love to get out there sometime.

Good luck.


Will you search through the lonely earth for me?

G'day Worky

The others a right. Private land around Majors Creek can be problematic as the newer landowners are mostly from Sydney and not at all friendly. Its also fairly rugged with limited access either by track or foot to where there is gold. Before moving to NE Vic I worked the area fairly well. First place to try is near the bridge on the Majors Creek road. Been well thrashed but you may be able to do well with a yabbie pump. You could also try up above the cemetery ( the Anglican one I think) but watch out for Tiger snakes and also up above the picnic area near the Araluen Braidwood rd on the Bottom Majors Creek road.

You can go up to the Waterfall on Majors creek, 4WD is best, but you can walk there if you need to leave your car at the top. I found a couple of bits there, but not much (Doesn't matter where I go, I never find much). Lovely spot.

Do you need permission to access the falls or just keep driving past the property??
