G'day

You won't find gold around Sydney but you will to the south, to the west over the Blue Mountains and further to the north. Google Sydney Metallogenic Map 1:500000, this will show you the gold bearing areas. Then research, research, research. Google is your friend Very Happy

If you want to learn and practice panning I suggest shaving a few bits of lead off a sinker and drop them in a pan full of gravel. Keep at it until you get the lead back each time and you're ready to go for the good stuff. There are some helpfull youtube vids that may give you a few tips.

Cheers
