Or sapphires ;) we found on our second visit that we hit the jackpot, about 10 stones of really good quality. It's best to go on bright sunny days, have patience. We've found a variety of colors too. I'm looking forward to going again soon!

I had just turned 7. My dad had passed away 2 years previous. My dad's friend was a pommie looking for a place to move to, so he moved in with us. He bought a brand new 1963 Nissan Cedric Ststion wagon. It was packed to the rafters, and we travelled up to this place. We stopped off at a... More

Re-opened as Billabong Blue this is the best place to fossick for sapphires in the Inverell area. Just a bit further down the road from 7 Oaks is this amazing place. Unlike 7 Oaks one can easily drive to the fossick area. Continue down kings plain raod until you hit gravel and continue for about 500m and its on the... More

I went here in 2012 and it was better than everywhere else when it comes to fossicking parks. The pile of wash is dry and not muddy unlike Seven Oaks down the raod. You dry sieve first and then wash which is better than trying to find sapphires in clay. In 2013 I returned and the park was closed to... More

we liked this place so much we came back twice and stayed all day. Bring your own water and food. We had a picnic lunch and then back to the fossicking. The excitement for our kids was seeing the big brown snake (who was shot as he was too close to the fossickers)

You know those things that you do because the kids want to – but in the end it is so much fun that you wonder why you haven’t done it before?… Well going sapphire fossicking was one of them. Frazers Creek Sapphires is about 20km out of Inverell. It is family run, and at the time we attended you literally... More
