Thanks Balf for the info. I will soon be looking into it. Especially for my old home town. Thanks again for doing all the hard work for us.

HI, im a newbie to this hobbie, i purchased my first detector from e-bay and cant wait till it arrives in the coming week or 2, its something i cant wait to get into and is something ive always wanted to do . Your post was really helpful to me, im not in it to strike it rich, i just want to see what i can find, whether it be coins, relics gold or junk, just want to meet new people and have fun in the outdoors.. finding gold will be a bonus. cant wait

cheers, ;D

Yes, I read page 1 thanks.. the substitution doesn't work.

I tried http://www.landservices.sa.gov.au/ which would seem the relevant department but I find their information ambiguous. I might call them and ask.

This is fantastic information and very generous. Thanks Balf. My father in law studies these maps to assist his hunts. I will have to pay more attention in future.

Thanks for this link, I used something similar years ago but this one will suit my needs for the moment in relation to a matter down south. 

I didnt have to register to do what I needed to do and if you click on the 'build map' it allows you to overlay a multitude of extra stuff like contours, actual road/track positions (not as they are in the titles office plans (click centrline road)) as well as waterways which includes dry gullies. 

It all helps when you need to identify an area once you are there.

Hi BALF,
 Many thanks for the info on the Parish maps. I had a little bit of trouble getting them to open but after a bit of persistence it paid off.
I had a PDF reader but that didn't seem to be enough so I downloaded the Adobe reader and when I went to open the map I clicked on open with a different viewer and clicked on Adobe reader which wasn't there before. It previously had the only option as "open with PDF 7" which didn't work.
It felt like Christmas when it finally worked!
Now it's just a case of studying the maps and working out where things are in relation to where they were.
 You're a legend.
Cheers
Rob

Balf popped up on May 30th but we hadn't heard from him for a long time before that. Good to see the Post was of some help.

Hi Balf and all, I used to use this site a lot years ago to help me navigate area's of interest. It has been some time since I have used this site and have been having some trouble, upon finding the initial post by Balf and following his instructions I have found that the site has been changed. Is anyone using this site and how do you now use the site. TIA
