Metal Detecting: WW2 Recon. Hunt: Garrett AT Pro International.


Join with us as we explore the Aussie bush for hidden WW2 camp areas and evidence of occupation by Diggers of the 7th and 9th Divisions, 2nd AIF. A lot of footwork and scouting produces some nice WW2 relics and coins in an area that warrants further investigation on future hunts. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren.

WW2 Metal Detecting: “GREEN ANT RIDGE”: Second Assault: Garrett AT Gold.


Despite summer heat and voracious resistance from the local Green Ants, we make a return to the site of a WW2 camp which has yielded some nice coins and relics. In this outing we unearth the second (lower) piece of a Digger’s Identity Disc, along with bronze and silver coins, with a silver surprise at the very end. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

Metal Detecting “GREEN ANT RIDGE”: Part 3 of 3: Garrett AT Pro International.


We round out the Centenary of ANZAC Year (1915-2015) with a three-part relic hunt focusing on North Queensland WW2 camp areas. Battling ferocious Green Ants, Colleen makes her debut behind the camera on the backup Lumix FT-10 and we are joined by veteran detectorist George from the NQ Miner’s Den. The day uncovers some King George V and VI coins, ‘AUSTRALIA’ shoulder flashes and WW2 webbing brass. Also uncovered is an Australian Army Identity Disc which we will attempt to return to the Digger’s family. These hunts are presented ‘as is’ – with the scrap targets included, to illustrate that metal detecting isn’t all about the great finds but rather the privilege to walk in the footsteps of the Diggers that went before us. Thanks for watching! Colleen and Warren (and George).

WW2 Metal Detecting: Centenary of ANZAC: Part 1 of 3. Garrett AT Gold.

In part 1 we pick up some ‘clipped’ silver, King George V bronze coins and WW2 cutlery. Colleen makes a button find that is not what we expected when cleaned up at home. These hunts are presented ‘as is’ – with the scrap targets included, to illustrate that metal detecting isn’t all about the great finds but rather the privilege to walk in the footsteps of the Diggers that went before us.

Metal Detecting NSW : A 3,500km Road Trip Adventure: Garrett AT Pro International.


Join with us on a 3,500km (2,700 mile) road trip through beautiful New South Wales. On the way we visit a number of historic sites, and squeeze in a few hours metal detecting here and there. We visit a number of abandoned railway lines and stations as we pass through rural areas on the Western Slopes and Southern Highlands. There is also a lot of in-car ‘dash cam’ so hang on for the ride!

Note: This video was shot with both a GoPro Hero 3 & a Panasonic Lumix FT-6. All video is 1080HD, the GoPro footage has not be adjusted to match the frame so the image will only be ‘full frame’ for the Lumix footage.

Thanks for watching! Colleen and Warren.
