G'day members,
New to the site but have been detecting for a couple of years now.
Recently moved to Perth from Darwin and looking to meet up with like minded detectorists, more fun than being on your own. gpx 5000 and a sea hunter mk2. Found gold in the past but only sinkers and bottle tops since I got to WA. :-[
53 y.o. male  ;D

Hi,
Anyone from around Melbourne?
I am planning to go around the gold triangle (Ballarat/Bendigo) this weekend.
Anyone interested in joining me?
It'd be best if you know a bit the area as I never went there though and wouldn't know where to start?
Cheers

Another newcomer...

 I live on Brisbane's inner North SIde and looking for a detector Buddy and or trainer in the first instance - focused on coins and any other interesting finds.

I have an X-terra 705 and a  Gamma 6000 and have little / no experience with either one...

I am semi retired, and have lots of work to do around the house / yard but can get out a fair Bit.  My biggest passion at the moment is Coffee and maintaining my IT and Electronic skills.

I would like to  explore places in and around  Brisbane and once I have a better handle on things, then do more advanced trips and prospecting ?


Drop a line here OR a PM

Regards
AM

G'day all, very new to metal detecting, went out with my father in-law and had a crack with his gpx 5000, am now hooked. Picked myself up a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV and have been going out weather permitting almost every day for about 4 weeks now. 

I live in North Bendigo and would love to meet some like minded people to go coin shooting with, drop us a PM and I'll get back to you asap. Cheers, Steve.

Hi Looking for someone in Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan with a bit of experience to go relic hunting or even gold panning.
Im pretty bored with just doing the few small parks in my area, would love to learn a few more advanced tricks on how to operate my MD.  & Maybe find some older coins or rings
I work for myself so can go any day of the week,
I Also have all gold panning equipment, but have never gone before.
Im 29, bit of a bogan, but polite & respectful.
Cheers

Hi everyone this is my first post so be gentle on me.  I've been detecting for about 6 months now so I am only new to the hobby.  I've only found a few coins nothing very exciting yet, but I am keen to learn. 
I've just moved to Gladstone and wondering if there is anyone around here that would like to partner up to go detecting.

Hi Felicity,
I'm just out of Gladstone, I'm not getting much time to detect due to work commitments, I can give you some locations that will help you along.
I'm not working today due to the rain so I am thinking maybe late this afternoon I might head out for an hour or 2.  PM me if you wish.

Felicity, if your not familiar with the pm system just click on the square next to a members name. If the square is lit up then the member is On Air. They will get the message either way. You only get  to use 5 personal messages until you have made a few posts. See the FAQ section.
