For a short stay, visiting the many fossicking parks and walk-in mines in Sapphire and Rubyvle are ideal for providing fun and enjoyment, and learning how to find gemstones.
For a longer stay or the more adventurous, fossicking is allowed on large areas of Sapphire bearing ground. A licence with maps and information must be purchased for a small fee, outlining the designated fossicking areas. Miners supply buckets of Sapphire-bearing wash for a fee, and you learn to how to recognise and find Sapphires by sieving and sorting the gravel wash. Specking (searching for sapphires) is very popular and can be very rewarding especially after rain. The method of fossicking is by digging the sapphire bearing gravel, which can be easy or hard depending on your philosophy of life. A variety of tools is allowed to help in your search for Sapphire, but all must be hand driven (no motors). The gravel is screened, washed and separated using sieves and other tools which can be hired locally.

What a fantastic Park! A great welcome on arrival, shown to your site and assisted with parking your caravan (saves the wife!) and everything is waiting for you. Excellent facilities, they even provide all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery you could ever need in both camp kitchens.- just need to wash them up afterwards and put the back ready for the next person - what more could you ask. They have a happy, happy hour and the owners feed some wallabies and birdlife at about five which is great to watch. Good concrete roads everywhere as well as concrete pads. It is just out of Sapphire, up a windy hill so lookout for the signs - it is the one up the hill, well worth heading up there. Highly recommended.
This place is amazing, very peaceful and quiet, set amongst trees and spotless with the best camp kitchen I have ever seen, totally fitted out and such ambience. BBQ facilities are great and the amenities blocks are better than most hotels. The place is a gem in the gem fields and I am so glad we found it. Owners were lovely too.
