It's good to see more stations opening up for this type of activity, lets hope everyone adheres to their rules.

Hey Mike maybe they have worked out that all those detectorists not only take a bit of gold but also spend quite a bit of money in the towns as well. Wink

I had a friend go there with a caravan, on a powered site, who paid $145 for week to camp and (don't quote me) I think $15 a day to detect.  Have not been there myself but here is a map -

sorry for the slow reply Wayne but annie has beat me to the map. our best day so far has been 45.3g all solids and I have heard of a 15 oz patch found by a couple of blokes I gave a lesson too. there is heaps of ground we have not covered yet and he has plans to open up a lot more. they have also opened up camping at the homestead area with aircond rooms and full ameneties and caravan sites as well.

Thanks Tricky,   T06 Sounds more interesting all the time, I must find time to have an up close and personal look around there, I will consult with our motley crew  T18 T18 T18 to arrange a look around, no doubt its in the right country Wink , its great to see good land become available for those who don't have private connections, when you're forced to follow in the footsteps of fools who have shat upon the hospitality given to them,lord knows it can be difficult in these parts.

That sort of thing is one of the reasons that I changed from gold detecting to coin.jewellery and relic hunting.
Gold detecting and prospecting has never been a life supporting occupation for me but now it is far too over controlled and is now a tedious and ruined pass time.

What was once for me wonderful physical  and mind centering activity  that kept me in close touch with nature as a human being has now become nothing more than something that keeps me occupied wondering whether I am breaking a law of some kind even though I am doing something that is a perfectly normal human activity. 
Australians are bound and controlled by more laws than any other country on the planet.....Is it any wonder that our kids don't know whether they are Authur or Martha.
A person can not fart or spit, give somebody a nasty look or disagree with another cultural belief  without breaking a law. Soon we will be taxed for breathing too many breaths per day because it adds to the  causes global warming or some other bs.

Adrian, you could be right there. The average person breaths out 1 kilo of carbon per day. That's 7.3 billion kilos of carbon per day. While we keep breeding the way we are you simply cannot prevent an increase in carbon in the atmosphere. I'm not saying it causes global warming just giving the info.

Cheers, Jim.

Maybe the global warming turkeys should remember that without carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and oceans most of our plant life will die and if the plant life dies so do we because we breath the oxygen that the plants release to the atmosphere.

This is what I have believed from the time I became aware of Global Warming a long time ago but without the knowledge base to put it into words.

Yes Jim the average person breathes out 1 kilo of carbon per day but doesn't mean that we also breathe in 1 kilo of carbon per day. Not telling the full story only incites more comments.

Besides, it has nothing to do with this topic about Hillsborough Station.
