Please join us for the second of our ‘Historical Walkthrough’ videos. This time we venture deep into the Great Dividing Range of New South Wales and visit a tiny Pioneer Bush Cemetery which served a gold and silver mining community. The town was wiped out in the bushfires of 1939 and was never rebuilt. It is a poignant reminder of the harsh conditions faced by our hardy pioneers in the late 19th Century. Thank you for watching and subscribing. Warren and Colleen. www.nqexplorers.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
Team NQE hits a long forgotten bush cricket ground dating from the early 1920s and unearths a run of old silver, plus some nice jewellery no doubt deposited in the Members Area by the lady friends of the ‘Bush 11’ who won the toss an elected to field. The gale force winds on the day didn’t just interfere with the audio, they almost tore the awning off the Land Rover (which in retrospect probably shouldn’t have been deployed in the first place). We invite you to like, subscribe and comment as you wish – Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren. www.nqexplorers.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
If you are new to the hobby, this video may be helpful in getting you started as we do get a lot of questions regarding the sites we visit and how we approach them. Alternatively, as an experienced detectorist you may be familiar with some of these techniques or have developed your own methods for dealing with these situations. We will be uploading further videos similar to this one dealing with advanced discrimination and tips on researching new areas. Thanks for watching, subscribing and commenting on the video. You can also contact us directly on Facebook where we are happy to answer any of your questions. Happy Fossicking!

This video was filmed in the (Southern) Winter of 2019 and although it may not qualify as ‘lost footage’ it was delayed in production as we have been travelling so much this year, including filming the series of videos with Beau in September/October. It is without question way too long at over 30 minutes with plenty of ‘real time live’ digs – but some great history is unearthed, reflecting the way of life of our hardy pioneers that built the inland infrastructure of 19th Century Australia. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Warren and Colleen. www.nqexplorers.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au
Welcome to the first of a new series of ‘Australian Historical Walkthrough’ videos where we travel all over the country highlighting significant National and State Historical Sites. These videos will be available on both NQ Explorers and our new crossover channel – NQE Overland. Thanks for watching, subscribing and commenting! Warren and Colleen. www.nqexplorers.com
Having been detecting for many years and unearthing literally thousands of coins and relics, it’s taken until 2019 for Colleen to score her first 19th Century Trade Token! This is no comment on her ability, more the areas we usually search – as Trade Tokens were outlawed before most of inland and northern Queensland was settled in the mid and late 1870s. Some other nice 19th Century finds also come to light in this little adventure filmed over two visits to the inland goldfields of Queensland. Thanks for watching and subscribing, and please feel free to comment on our video! All the very best and Happy Fossicking!

Following on from our previous video in a WW2 Australian Army Divisional camp along with Beau ‘Aquachigger’, we continue after lunch wary of a lunchtime Taipan sighting and the long grass we were facing. More great WW2 memorabilia comes to light, including buckles and silver coins, and finally a very special ‘Trench Art’ Diggers ‘Slouch Hat’ fashioned from a 1943 Kangaroo Penny! Thanks for watching and subscribing and please visit Beau’s channel for his take on the day! Happy Fossicking! Colleen, Warren and Beau!
Join with Warren, Colleen and Beau ‘Aquachigger’ as we sortie into a WW2 Camp utilised by both the 7th and 9th Australian Divisions from 1942-1945. Lots of great historic militaria is unearthed until we retire for lunch and a cold drink. Part 2 will incorporate the afternoon’s adventure!
Please check out Beau’s version of events on his Youtube Channel:
Our goldfields adventure continues with more evidence of the large number of Chinese Diggers who worked the remote Queensland goldfields in the 1870s and 1880s. Plenty of unique ‘pinfire’ rounds and a 370 year old Imperial Chinese Cash Coin are unearthed as we push deeper into the remote bush. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren (and Beau and George).

Please join me, Warren, Colleen and Ben as we metal detect freshly excavated gold bearing dirt for gold nuggets. We do great and find some good gold and have a blast as usual. Special thanks to Ben of the Golden Spur Mining camp, Warren and Colleen of NQ Explorers, Garrett USA and Garrett Australia for making this metal detecting and exploring adventure possible for me. it was a trip of a lifetime and this day digging was one of the most fun. Come for the gold, stay for the giant flock of Cockatoos.
