Gemtree fossicking and campsite is located about 140km Northeast from Alice Springs. A short drive (4x4 not needed) and well worth it. At the site, you can choose to fossick for Garnets or Zircons. I was amazed how easy our instructors, Pam and John, made it seem. We worked on fossicking for about 6 hours and were rewarded with a number of a good stones. The links below are showing raw stones and cut stones.
The facilities at Gemtree are fantastic. There is a picture of the cabins and the campsites below. Once you get the raw stone, do not forget to get a cutter. A very reasonably priced cutter named Willem de Gunst, 8953 4481 cut our stones.
