Welcome to Golden Triangle Tours, we are the “Original” gold metal detecting tuition tour operation which conducts all tours on a secluded privately own parcel of land that has old diggings from the 1860’s right on the front steps of your fully self contained 6 berth cabin.
Join us for this truly awesome and unforgettable experience we will teach you all you need to learn how to detect for the precious yellow rock. We will teach you how, where and what signs to look for when gold prospecting. We use the latest top of the range Minelabs series detectors which gives you the best chance of finding that elusive gold nugget.
We only conduct tours for small groups of no more than three to four people. This enables you, the customer, to be given the most intense and personal tuition available on the market. At the end of the day sit back and enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine whilst you sit on the decking of the cabin and take in the great scenery of the evening sunset.
Golden Triangle Tours offer a number of different services. We have four main packages which can be tailored to suit your needs.
Our first package is the Half Day Tour. These tours are as the name suggest are half day tours, they combine all the intense tuition of the three-hour package as well as providing morning tea, lunch and more time for detecting. These tours can be run from CWPS at Mudgee (depending on staffing and time of the year…as GTT only offers very very limited places per year due to demand for day and overnight tours).
The third package is the Full Day Tour these tours provide a full day of prospecting as well as delicious meals. The package is limited to between two to four customers per tour per day so you really do experience totally intense tuition. We know that this will really whet your appetite to enjoy a full day in the great Victorian goldfields. A staff to student ratio of 2:1 is always applied.
The fourth and final service offered is the Over Night Tour which is our specialty, these can also include multiple days to suit your needs. This tour is truly the deluxe of all tours offered anywhere in the Australian Goldfields. We host you to at least two days of detecting on privately owned goldfields as well as one of the most memorable nights you will have for many years to come. We will also incorporate a special trip through the “Golden Triangle” visiting such places as Dunolly, Moliagul – The home of the “Welcome Strange” & a couple of very special places.
