Yeah Ash, for the last few nights, Mondays was better. Thunderstorms predicted all this week.

Love your pics also. Those Bush Turkeys are excellent eating.

I spent a couple months north of laverton and saw a lot of really cool "critters" us yanks aren't familiar with. The bush turkey walked like it didn't want it's hair messed up. I saw a couple snakes the size of a pencil that my buddy Steve Misson said was deadly, a ? Guata? And even more rare, a couple sun bakers!

The Indigenous folk are allowed to hunt them. Occasionally I'll do a trade for some other type of food.

Gwardar and yep very deadly. Usually a death or two per year here. Rule of thumb here is if it has no legs it could most likely kill you.

Thanks for the correction, it's hard to understand and you can only ask "what " so many times. I loved it out there. Hope to return someday. I left gold in the ground because I had to fly out. That was 11 years ago.

      Hi folks,
      for those making the trek this year and who plan on detecting on Erlistoun Station.
      Ownership has changed hands and it is no longer held by Grainger Pastoral Co.
      I will still be here as on site manager so it's business as usual as far as I am concerned.
      We are a prospector friendly station and all we ask is to please let us know if and when you'll be on the station. Feral control is on going so for safety reasons, it helps if we know where you are and you know where we are.
      Please take out what you bring in, don't bury your rubbish. Please keep off station roads when wet, that wheel rut becomes a water channel, that water channel becomes a creek....
      Please respect leases and know where you are and have 40E's and permissions in order.
      Please respect cattle and infrastructure, and no firearms or shooting under any circumstances.
      At this stage I am not sure on the new owners policy regarding bringing dogs onto the station but I will endeavour to find out ASAP and update it here.
      Correspondence can be sent to:
      Steve Fisher,
      P.O. Box 189
      Laverton W.A. 6440
      Ph :08 9037 5951 (after 6pm)
      Email: picknose@hotmail.com
      Alternatively I can be contacted here on this forum

      This is an open thread for any good/bad Australian picture of gold or video adventure!

      The new compact, super light PI from Ballarat, Australia. This machine uses any Minelab PI compatible mono coil and is dynamite on small as well as larger gold. It is almost totally unaffected by  EMI enabling it to be used near or practically beneath power lines. All hand built, on a limited production scale, this little beauty is creating great interest in Australia, where it can handle the highly mineralized soils. The outlet for this detector is Goldsearch, in Dunolly, Victoria, Australia.
