📑 Parks Victoria – Fossicking and prospecting

Bookmarked Parks Victoria – Fossicking and prospecting (parkweb.vic.gov.au)
I took my daughters fossicking. Ms. 8 has a new found passion for geology stemming from her newfound love of Minecraft. She therefore wanted to go to a goldmine. I found a list of sites in Victoria where you can go searching for gold. The closest spot was Steiglitz Historic Park. We parted the car at The Pines Carpark and explored the remnants of the New Chum Mine.

The girls loved strolling through the bush and simply following the lay of the land. They explored the various rocks (no gold) and wondered about nature. It reminded me of an experience on school camp from a few years ago and the power and potential associated with outdoor education.
