Metal Detecting and 4WDing North Queensland – Part 2.


In the second instalment of a two-part adventure, we head deep into the North Queensland bush in search of old goldfields camps. Some great Chinese coins and relics come to light once again along with Aboriginal Cave Art, and the incredible ‘Dripping Cave’. A big thank you to Mr George Mayer (formerly of the North Queensland Miner’s Den) – for inviting us along and sharing his knowledge of this historic area of North Queensland. Happy Fossicking!

In the first instalment of a two-part adventure, we head deep into the North Queensland bush in search of old goldfields camps. Some great Chinese coins and relics come to light and we camp out under the stars before exploring more historic sites, Aboriginal Cave Art, and the incredible ‘Dripping Cave’ in Part 2. A big thank you to Mr George Mayer (formerly of the North Queensland Miner’s Den) – for inviting us along and sharing his knowledge of this historic area of North Queensland. Happy Fossicking!

WW2 Metal Detecting: ‘The Pip Patch’: Garrett ACE 300i


A return visit to a well-detected site turns up some great finds. By concentrating to the more difficult heavily grassed areas with the ACE300i and AT Gold/AT Pro International, we manage to pull a number of coins, ‘AUSTRALIA’ flashes and other WW2 relics from the site. Finally Colleen hits on the ‘Pip Patch’, probably the Officer’s lines, and a very small area produces some great ‘keepers’. We hope you enjoy the outing. Happy Fossicking!

WW2 Metal Detecting: Buckles & Bullets! Garrett AT Pro International.


Over the next few months we will be uploading a series of WW2 relic hunts, concentrating on a few particular unit camp areas. This first hunt could be regarded as a Prologue of things to come – no great finds but lots of live digs with Colleen commentating, leading us to the next episode where the great finds start accumulating. We hope you enjoy this short amble around the Australian bush – much more to follow! Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren. www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au

WW2 Metal Detecting: Eight Silvers! Garrett AT Pro International.


Another sensational day in a former camp area of the Australian Army – in this installment Colleen alone digs six silver coins and a silver ring! Lots of full-length ‘live’ digs are included in this video, many filmed by Colleen herself. Along with all the silver a nice run of Rising Sun badges, ‘AUSTRALIA’ flashes, and uniform buttons come to light on one of the best days we have experienced for some time. We hope you enjoy the outing. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren. www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.outdoortactical.com.au www.facebook.com/nqexplorers www.nqexplorers.com

WW2 Relic Hunt: Five Silvers at the Lake! Garrett AT Gold.


In this very brief instalment, we spent just a couple of hours at a very well detected lakeshore, and picked up a silver ring and five silver coins, before retreating to the bush and making some new finds in a spot that we have visited on past trips. We hope you enjoy this short video – our next video series will be a much longer, 3 part WW2 relic hunt. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.
