Gold Panning & Fossicking 

Reedy Creek Eldorado

Gold panning or fossicking along the creek is a great way to experience the Gold Rush of this once bustling mining area.

For gold panning and fossicking, you need a Victorian miner's right, which can be purchased at the Information Centres in Beechworth or Wangaratta.

Eldorado is the one place in Australia where you are almost guaranteed to find gemstones and crystals along the expanse of Reedy Creek, the richest of all Australian Creeks. Try your luck at finding quartz, sapphires, zircon, ruby, rock crystal, amethyst, garnets and more.

Pack a picnic and spend a relaxing, peaceful day on the banks of the creek. It's a fun activity for all the family.
