Anyone tried the coal hill fossicking area down south. Thinking of going for a look down that way, anyone got any tips for what to look out for? Cheers, Scott.

Hi Scott,

I haven't been down there myself, but a friend of mine has, and had no trouble finding small-ish agates and petrified wood. He recommended looking on the surface in recently logged coupes. I'd be keen to go for a look, but can't the next couple of weekends. Let us know how you go, if you get down there the next couple of weeks!
