Have a ball whilst learning the finer art of gold prospecting in the Aussie bush. We take you out into the goldfields of Victoria and teach you how find gold. On our one day tours there is a delicious bush lunch along with morning and afternoon tea and drinks throughout the day. We commence the one day adventure at 9.30am and finish at 4.30pm.

Hi Leanne, Thanks for your reply. We did go on a half day dour with Darren. Had a great time and learned a lot. Would love to go on a full day tour. What is the best time of the year to go? Warm regards, Julie
