Gday everyone,

Apologies if this has been covered before.
I'm heading out this morning to the mullion ranges state forest to give my new AT gold it's first swing and it occurred to me that I may need a permit to detect in state forests?
The only real info I can find is on a fossiking permit that says no mechanical, electrical or hydraulic powered equipment?

What's the actual rules regarding detecting?

Cheers
Mick

G'day wishful_thinking

Here is the info you are looking for.

Probably won't be able to get one today as I think there closed. Sad

Anyhow good luck with your new detector.

Why not go to Ophir reserve, you can legally detect there with out any paper work, and there is gold there, probably not much further for you if your in Orange.

Oh that's awesome, thanks guys. Went out for about 4.5hrs this morning.
No gold but a few interesting things like an old cow bell.

I'll jump on that permit first thing Tuesday, but I think ophir will be the next outing.

Cheers
Mick

Hi Jen - thanks for putting the link up.

Mick no need to wait till Tuesday. You can pay & print your permit 24/7 now. Just click on START on the top left side of the page Jen put the link up for, choose an area (not important as its now also a statewide permit), enter ya details & away you go.

Good luck over there! Your in a good area with a lot of options reasonably close by.
