Welcome DaddyD. I am wondering how you be
able to get to Australia. Due to international
Travel lockdown. Hope your not in a hurry to get here
Our state borders haven't even been lifted yet
And who knows when they will be
The answer to your survey/question will
be all of the above. Depending on what type of prospecting
you intend on doing.

Welcome. You will just have to do a lot of reading up and wait till this Covid19 crisis is over and then I'm sure the restrictions of i/c flights etc from other countries will be very well vetted before entry is allowed. Thus there will be more gold for us until then,
Cheers Jaros. smile

I think you should use the time you have to
do a lot of research on line and use the search
Icon at the top of the page of the forum.
Plenty of info here.
Then you can determine what part of Australia
would suit you. It's a big country and you
don't want to end up somewhere you don't want
to be. It could cost you a lot of waisted time
and money.

Unfortunately there's no chance of river and creek panning anywhere around Kalgoorlie (or anywhere else in Western Australia, as far as I know).

Don't forget north queensland. Nice warm climate. Plenty of gold. Some is relatively easy to get especially if you like panning and crevicing. Can't tell you exactly where though as a plan to return to that spot myself one day wink I am in South Australia. There have been some fantastic finds down here lately. A friend showed me a picture of some very large multi ounce gold that he is still pulling out at least until last weekend but its from a private farm property in the hills. I think most of the good SA gold is on private properties which is not so good for visiting prospectors. Good luck.

You can get gold in all of those States, but South Australia is probably the least exciting - WA is not as good for alluvial as Victoria and NSW. Very different topography in the main to the Philippines!
