G’day all, In response to Craig’s post, I phoned him this morning and he is sorted - thanks Miguel.
For anyone else who’s unsure of where to camp, just turn up at the huts on Ringswandl’s Rd and there should be someone about to direct you.
Does anyone play a musical instrument ? If so, bring along your guitar, accordion , harmonica or whatever for some entertainment/ campfire jam session. I’ll dust off my old accoustic guitar and bring that along. Should be fun.
See ya there ! Cheers, Fox.
I’ve added an extra point above:
- Children and pets to be closely supervised at all times. There are abandoned mining works and current working faces that are a fall danger.

A great time was had by everyone ! a few pics from the day . welcome to all the newcomers !
G’Day PMAT members that attended Back Creek AGM in February.
I can report that 30.23 grams of gold was found on the weekend (not including gold in “Paydirt Bags”), which is almost an ounce!
The best find was Craig Parsey’s specie in an area that has been available for detectorists over the last 6 years!
Thanks for the privilege of attending on your lease once again . Holding that specie in my hand was nearly enough to swing this old relic hunter over to the dark side !
I recon you would get a few beeps swinging a coil over that specie. Maybe they thought it was trash
That is a nice piece of gold !
