Today we went Gem fossicking @opalsdownundersc , this is an activity both children and adults will enjoy, searching through the scratch patch.

Entry is free, you only pay for the gem stones.
You can pick from the small tub for $8 or the large tub from $15. You collect as many gem stones as you can fit in your container and those are the ones you get to keep.
You are also given a leaflet so you can see which gems you have found and their names.

Here are just a few of the different types of gemstones which can be found in the fossicking area;

  • Boulder Opal
  • Malachite
  • Agate
  • Tiger Iron
  • Rose Quartz
  • Tiger Eye
  • Hematite
  • Petrified Wood
  • Amethyst
  • Chrysoprase
  • Jasper

There is a couple of different fossicking areas so make sure you check all of them out before you fill up your container.

Parents can enjoy a tea or coffee from the self serve coffee centre while the kids fossick.

If you didn’t find the gemstone you were looking for then you can purchase them in the shop.

Open 7 days a week 9am - 4.30pm

You can also host a birthday party here for the cost of fossicking only! You just take your own food, drinks and party games. Make sure you book so you are allocated the large grassed area.

Public amenities and parking available on site.

Enjoy fossicking
