Rubyvale Sapphire Fossicking DIY Tours
We will teach you about fossicking for sapphires, provide you with the Fossicking Licence, all the tools required and a map and directions that will put you in an area where big sapphires have been found.
You will need a car with good clearance or a 4WD and room for the Gemstone Fossicking Kit.
There are no facilities out on the fossicking area so bring a picnic lunch, drinking water, toilet paper, sun screen and bug repellent. Dress for a day in the Aussie Bush. Eg: closed in shoes or boots, long pants, and hat.
If you book our Rubyvale Sapphire Fossicking Daily DIY Tour over two days or more and you are staying in Rubyvale, we allow you to have the equipment overnight so that you can continue digging until late and then go out early the next morning, (especially good idea when it’s hot). You need to return the gear by 2.30pm on the day of your departure. Drop off times can be arranged when you arrive.
For the self sufficient campers our Rubyvale Sapphire Fossicking and Camping DIY Tour is perfect for those who want to get off the beaten track.
Last of all is our Rubyvale Sapphire Fossicking Kit Tour which is for people who know what they are doing and where they want to fossick, they just need the Fossicking Kit.
