Metal Detecting ‘The Lost Valley’ Part 1.

On this trip we visit a private permission deep in the Great Dividing Range, where a whole Colonial settlement existed in the late 19th Century. Now abandoned and forgotten, with even it’s initial purpose a mystery, the site reveals itself find by find to be one of the best areas we have visited in a long time. Colonial coins and buttons feature in this first instalment, including a 1790 Gaming Jeton and some nice brass buckles. In Part 2, the finds really ramp up with some Colonial Australiana coming to light. We hope you enjoy joining with us unearth some great Australian history! Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.

A big thank you to Ross and his Dad for permission to visit and detecting this site!
