Fossicking for hidden treasure!

The next planned holiday on the agenda are the thriving regional centres of Biloela and Emerald. To give us that perfect country get-away an overnight stay on a genuine cattle station is a must! The following day we will head further west to the Sapphire Gemfields where we will enjoy the experience of fossicking for sapphires. This area is famed for cattle-rearing and home to some of the state's largest cattle stations. It's also mining country, from the former gold workings of Mt Morgan to the mighty open cut coal fields near Moura. The drive out west should be a memorable experience. It is 4WD country and therefore the rental of an off-road vehicle will be a must on this trip!

This trip promises all the excitement of a by-gone era of gold mining, fossicking and cattle driving with all the luxury and modern conveniences of today.
