Blue Gem Caravan Park, the Friendly Fossickers Park is situated in Sapphire on the banks of Retreat Creek where Sapphires were originally discovered. Their fossicking park located on site allows you to search for stones under the guidance of their staff. For the more serious fossicker you can hire some equipment and wander down to the creek or public fossicking areas and do some digging for yourself and maybe find the Big One! They can also provide information on local Fossicking Tours out to the fields.
