Purchase a fossicking licence or fossicking camping permit
In response to COVID-19, all fossicking areas in Queensland are closed until further notice to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 among the community.
Fossicking can still occur on private land with the permission of the landholder, providing appropriate social distancing measures being observed.
For further information email Resources.Info@dnrme.qld.gov.au.
Fossickers require a current fossicking licence, which can be obtained online, from our regional and district offices and authorised agents. Licences are not required at tourist mines and similar sites that charge a fee for entry.
Contact our regional and district offices for all fossicking enquiries.
