Finding gold specks from the pan
Have you always wanted to know how to find gold?

Whether you wish to sluice, puddle, pan or prospect, the insightful James who owns, operates and leads Gold Tours will take you out and assist to realise your gold dreams.

Kids can join in with the sluicing too
James will share his local knowledge with you, takes you out to his private property and teaches you how to sluice, pan and prospect.

He will give you a glass vial to pop your treasures in and anything under 2 ounces you keep (if it is over 2 ounces James will split it 50/50 with you.

Letting the stream do the work for you
This could end up being the cheapest event you have ever taken (if you are lucky, it may even pay you to go).

Even if you don't quite strike it rich, you will usually find little flecks of gold to take away, making it a great activity and learning experience.

James is especially peaceful and understanding with children and would love to share his knowledge with them.

Lately, he has hosted scout weekends where they camp on his property for a fun filled weekend, gold prospecting, playing learning games and having a terrific weekend away.

School groups are welcome as are small groups and individuals.

Costs vary depending on what you are wanting to do, starting from as little as $40pp

To determine what you would like to do and the costs involved, just call James - have a chat and he will work out an affordable package with you.

Me - digging up a shovel full to try my luck - we found a garnet and 4 small flecks in this pan

Creswick Motel is a great place to stay if you want to do some prospecting around Creswick and want to have a nice warm shower and comfortable bed.
