Metal detecting in W.A. is usually associated with the search for gold nuggets, but in this foray to the west we head into the giant forests of jarrah and karri in the search for abandoned mill towns and camps. Some nice relics of a bygone era come to light in this beautiful corner of Australia. We hope you enjoy this Southwest adventure!

Our third sortie to the the site of an 1860s pioneer mansion in Queensland uncovers more great Victoriana, including a real surprise discovered by Colleen just lying on the surface! Live digs abound here

Our second sortie to the the site of an 1860s pioneer mansion in Queensland uncovers more great Victoriana, with the find of the day a fantastic 1860 Penny Trade Token.

In the first ‘recon’ video into a new site, we head out in search of relics from the Great War. The 2nd Light Horse Regiment trained in this area in 1915 before deploying to Egypt, and eventually, Gallipoli. Lots of talking and a bit of detecting and a great WWI relic does come to light. Stay tuned for a second visit to this site in search of relics from this famous Cavalry Regiment. Happy Fossicking! www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
A video with a difference in that we are in an urban park (so no long shots sorry), which was the site of a pioneer school established in 1882. The school was relocated to a larger site shortly after the First World War. Some great old coins and relics come to light, culminating in a lovely Victorian silver. We hope you enjoy the first video in a series filmed at this site. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren. www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
Join with us for our first reconnaissance sortie into the site of an abandoned WW2 R.A.A.F Airfield. The base was used by both the R.A.A.F. and U.S.A.A.F. from early 1942 until the cessation of hostilities in late 1945. Some great relics and coins come to light in this first recon sortie. We will be revisiting the site over the next few months to see what else lies buried! Thanks for watching and subscribing. www.nqexplorers.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
Join with us for a second sortie as we investigate an abandoned Victorian riverside promenade in the quest for 19th Century relics and coins. Some great unexpected finds come to light right from the start, so we plan several return visits to the site which has a lot more potential! Thanks for watching and subscribing!

In the continuation of our trip to Arizona, USA, we head to an 1890s ghost town established to serve a number of gold mines. Some great 19th Century relics come to light in the snow as we vie for the coveted award of a three day old 50c Blueberry Pie for the best relic found! A big thank you to Steve Moore of Garrett for organising a great trip. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren. www.garrett.com. www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
In Part 1 of our trip to Arizona, USA, we head up to Glow Wash and prospect for gold nuggets with a great group of experienced prospectors. On the way we check out the ruins of the Anderson Mill, and the Underwood Ranch. A big thank you to Steve Moore for organising a great day out. In the upcoming Part 2, we will head to even higher elevations in search of gold rush relics in an 1890s ghost town. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

This is our first trip to the site of a large property first established in 1860. No evidence of the former two-storey mansion now exists, but we manage to turn up some great Victoriana and a few surprises along the way. Spoiler: The small coin Colleen finds near the end of the video, is a Phillipines coin from the 1970s (not in the video subtitles so our apologies for that). You never know what may turn up in the middle of nowhere! We will return to the site for a second instalment soon. Thanks for watching and subscribing!
