Gold Prospecting Australia is a family owned business. We have over 45 years of detecting experience between us.
We have been running our tours in Victoria, Western Australia, New South Wales and now Queensland for over 8 years now.

We are the leaders and specialists in Metal Detecting Training and Gold Prospecting Tours in Australia.

That's us, Mark and Ronda Hyde below.

Gold Prospecting Australia are licensed Parks Victoria Tour Operators. We have the authority to conduct our tours and training days in most of the State and National parks and forests in the Golden Triangle of Victoria.
We also hold a Victorian Tourist Fossicking Authority, issued by the Dept of Primary Industries. This means our clients can join us on tour and prospect for gold without having to have their own Miner's Right, in Victoria.

We have all the very latest top of the range Minelab detectors available for use during our tours and training days.

We have our own YouTube video channel with new videos being added on a regular basis. This one was recently added;
It shows Mark demonstrating why low and slow is so important when detecting.

At GPA we pride ourselves in the way we train our clients. Everyone gets lots of one on one training in the field with us to ensure they get the most out of their time with us. We do not detect ourselves whilst on tour or training. We devote all of our day to our clients, walking beside them, listening to what they are listening to and teaching by experience.

Another lovely piece of gold. Dave from NZ found this one out of Leonora last year. It was under some very hard cap rock. Well done Dave. The link below will take you to our YouTube video channel and you will see Dave dig out this beautiful nugget.

This Beautiful nugget was found on one of our Western Australia Tours. It doesn't get any better than this.
It weighs 69.42 ounces or 2,159 grams.

This life changing lump of gold was a sun baker, half of it was on top of the dirt, next to some other metal rubbish.

This beautiful piece was 2"deep and sounded like a tin can!
