We found less sapphires than at Billabong Blue next door, but that could just be the luck of the day. The access road requires a 4x4. The dunny is very basic and doesn't smell good. There is a tap with drinking water and with a...More
Lots of fun fossicking for sapphires - you will almost certainly find some, but don't expect to make a fortune -- you'd have to be lucky to even find enough to make up the $20 fee.
Tranquil location with a basic food prep area, and...More
Kids loved it, very pretty area near the river, old vehicles around added charm. All equipment and instructions were provided, we found several little blue sapphires in the couple of hours we were there. We got there at 9am and had a good hour before...More

Sapphire bearing wash is dug straight from the creek at this location. It's then dumped right beside the sieving...More
We arrived at Seven Oaks and were immediately welcomed by the friendly owner. Fantastic place for the kids to run around and have a bit of fun fossicking through the dirt. Would recommend this place to anyone.
Yes, after just half an hour, one in our group found a sapphire .. not very big, but hey .. it's still a sapphire
The bearded bushy served us and frankly, he was part of the fun setting - and very obliging to be included...More
great place to fossick, found some small sapphires. Caretaker was very helpful. Suggested we do the fossicking using the sluice which we did. Able to get through a lot more buckets instead of doing by hand.
