Make sure you take plenty of cold beer cheers . Was there this time last year and had to work hard for any gold. We ended up sitting in the creek just panning and even that was hard work.
Can I be intrusive and ask where abouts the property is that will let you detect for a fee. I grew up in Mt Molloy and know a few property owners out that way. Getting harder and harder for access like the rest of Australia I guess.
Am heading back up that way around winter time and would like to give the 'River of gold' another try. Great museum at roadhouse.
Isnt the road to Cooktown all bitumen now? Palmer shouldnt be a problem but maytown etc.. may be an issue.
BTW have you ever tried around the mitchell river. Font Hills Station at Mt Molloy was allowing access through to Mt Carbine for 4x4 drivers and people wanting to go camping. This was 12 months ago though.
Hope you get heaps of yella and have a great time.
Cheers
