Fossicking (prospecting)

The Weld River is not only known for its Tin, but for its gems!

You can hire equipment from the hotel and try your luck and is great fun for the whole family. We've had a family from New Zealand stay and fossick over a weekend, regulars from Tasmania, Queensland and even as far as the North America.

This area is a unique spot in TAS as is a great place for beginners and prospectors alike as there is a wide range of terrain and river areas to explore.

Ask Mark or Rob about their luck in the weld!
