Detecting creeks and rivers

Post  Martin R on Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:13 pm

Hi All

Anybody know what the law is when it comes to detecting creeks and rivers?

I was told many years back that there is a certain distance from the the river or creek bed that one could detect even if it was fenced off , Does anyone know for sure what the deal is here ?

Sure I can see the rivers etc where can not go , but what of the common law ?
How far from a rivers or flowing creek can one legally detect without getting into SH!T ?

It is surprising that nobody has answered this question.
I know that the property owner does not own rivers and streams passing through their property. I know that you can travel in or on these waterways without the land owners permission and detect and search for gold in the streams and up the banks above the water line but I have forgotten how far away from the water line that you can go without permission from the land owner......It is likely that the rules have changed a lot since my last reading of the rules about 15 YEARS AGO.

Have a read of section XII, Page 384, under the "Victorian Land Act" 1958 "Bed & Banks of Certain Water Courses".
