Hey all, I'm a relative newbie, and was hoping to learn if anyone knew of any good prospecting spots around the Newcastle/Hunter Valley area?

Learned to prospect while living in newy and I found nundle to be the closest place to get gold. Not much in the Hunter valley unfortunately

Along time ago in a galaxy far away!! Closest spot to Newcastle for me. Thankfully I've lost a bit of weight since then (gave up sitting at a desk).

As others have said... Nundle is about the closest. There is some gold around Noonan flats but all private land.

Yes I should have mentioned that. A creek up at Hanging Rock. Cleaning out the hole behind the big rock, got a few small specks, went back another time after very heavy rain, but didn't get a thing.
