Welcome to
Gold Hunting Adventures

Come along to the river and learn how the professionals find and pan gold. We conduct day trips for small groups, from a special family day out to tutoring the seasoned prospector.

 Traveling to our local gold fossicking areas and a working gold claim, we teach how and where to find gold nuggets using gold pans, sluice boxes and gold detectors. Our expert guides with years of experience also point out the do's and don'ts of safety in and around New Zealand rivers.
