Hi folks, Hi Natenwhy, Smile I would suggest your question is kind of a "how long is a piece of string" kind of question, you will no doubt have to do some research like all of us into where you might wish to look for gold, part of that process will include the question of who owns or controls that particular land and can I go there?, research is the key! Good luck out there!
Regards
Wayne. cheers

G'day natenwhy. Firstly, go right through this section and you will find lots of items/posts about different areas where people have been ... there's a good place to start.

Perhaps if you download 'Google Earth' ... and then, within this section, look for some of the posts that tell you of different .kml files to download and then look at in 'Google Earth' ... these will have some of the old diggings and mines that are within allowed areas for detectorists.

I know this all sounds very confusing to a newbie, but it is all a learning curve that will help you to discover where gold has previously been found, and is currently being found ... in areas that are accessible. I think you will even find some of these files listed within this section (VIC) ... so that's a really good head start.

Go through as many of the related posts as you can ... make notes ... you will soon discover which areas people or utilizing for this wonderful hobby. There will literally be fields that are named for you, and areas that are described in great detail. In some posts you will see areas that are definitely 'off limits'.

We all start exactly where you are now. No-one can give you an exactl location to find gold ... but there's lots of general areas, ideas and descriptions. Good luck on your quest for gold ... and good luck to all of us! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
