Metal Detecting WW2 Staging Camp: “Two Bob”: Garrett AT Pro International.


A return visit to a site that we haven’t detected for several years produces some ripper finds. Bronze Pennies and webbing buckles are followed by a large General Service ‘Rising Sun’ badge, and finally a very large piece of .925 silver in the form of a 1943 Florin ‘Two Bob’. We hope you enjoy this short outing in glorious North Queensland winter weather! Happy Fossicking! Warren and Colleen.

2nd Historic Palmer River Adventure: Garrett AT Gold.


We return to the historic South Palmer River region of North Queensland, once again joined by fellow prospector and relic hunter Glen. The purpose of the trip was to explore a number of old mining camps in an area that was mainly worked by the Chinese and some great relics, include centuries-old ‘Cash’ coins & opium paraphernalia, come to light.

All camping and detecting was carried out on a private lease with permission – a big thank you to Glen for organizing the permissions. Happy Fossicking everyone! Colleen, Warren and Glen.

“The Lost Racecourse”: Metal Detecting with the Garrett AT Gold.


Join us as we explore the Aussie bush in search of a ‘Lost’ & long forgotten bush racecourse first used in the 1880s. We find some tantalising relics but the rampant spear grass prevents us from discovering the main betting ring. This actually just gives us a good reason to return and continue the search once the grass has died back! From the racecourse we move on to a couple of old North Queensland mining towns in search of relics & coins. Colleen (once again) tops the board with a beautiful 1910 Silver Sixpence. Happy Fossicking everyone! Warren and Colleen.

Historic Palmer River Adventure: Garrett AT Gold.


On this outing we are joined by fellow prospector and relic hunter Glen as we explore the historic Palmer River area of North Queensland. The purpose of the trip was to detect a number of old mining camps Glen had discovered in the area and some great relics come to light. Among the finds, our oldest coin to date – a medieval Chinese ‘Two Cash’ cast brass coin dating from AD 1068. We also go in search of lost gold mines in a very remote area of the Palmer region.

All detecting was carried out on a private lease with permission – a big thank you to Glen for organizing the trip and providing the transport. Happy Fossicking everyone! Warren and Glen.
