First off some General Information to read about the Park Area before I post maps

http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/explore/parks/enfield-state-park

Fossicking at Enfield

Nearly half of the park is available for fossicking or panning for gold along Misery Creek. See the park note map for details. Remember to fill any holes made and leave the area as you found it. Relics are protected by law and must not be disturbed or removed.

All adults must hold a current Miners Right to engage in fossicking.

The Area I will post maps on is Picnic Point which is also called surface point and is the site of the Chinese camp site there is a camp area and DropToilets.
Mount Misery Creek
11.1859 Almost exclusively in the possession of the Chinese; a few parties of Europeans got between
80 and 200 pounds in a few days but this is confined to a limited space.4
12.1859 A considerable influx of Chinese who occupy 2 miles of the creek plus the flat on either side.5
01.1860 The Chinese are reported to have "hit it heavy", with one find paying 250 pounds per man per
week.6

Thanks for putting up this info but unfourtanitly a lot of people in here , by their past responses , will ignore the relic part as well as abiding by the laws that pertain to any restrictions !

Yeah enfield has some extremely steep slopes. Im not sure if enfield is alluvial ground or not because I looked around there and the chinese mines are very deep indicating that its deep lead.

Harro have been up around the area a couple of times still no luck. Steep and gets sloppy in winter. Gerry be careful around Steiglitz i believe only can pan and detect 100 metres down stream from the bridge in town, the rest is either historical reserve or Nat Park. Mostly deep ground but gullies along South Steiglitz Rd and Sutherland's Creek where most of the action was.
