Gemtree Booking Enquiry

Buy a Bucket

For those who prefer the comfort of fossicking near amenities or if you are short of time, you can purchase a bucket of garnet bearing gravel right here at the park - the perfect way to have a 'taste' of the fossicking experience instead of going out to the gemfields. The treasures from your bucket will also be appraised and sorted so you know just what you have!

$30 per bucket

Garnet Gully

"Garnet Gully" has proved a popular spot for our Junior Gemologists! Situated here at the caravan park, for a fun family activity you can take half an hour or so to fill your bucket and sieve for a variety of Harts Range minerals, gems and crystals. These rock specimens are perfect for children to get started on their very own collection. Whatever you find is yours to keep but we do not sort or identify them for you. That will be your challenge!

$5 per bucket
