Dig into some research

Find a Location

Research at your local library or history society, Government Department of Mines, via newspaper archives and town plans. Talk to local elders. They could have valuable information such as swimming holes they used as kids; old baseball or football fields, or a park that was used for markets. Links to the past are potential hot spots to hunt in. Treasure could be right under your feet.

Map Pointing

The hunt is on

Go hunt where people gather. Search fairgrounds, race tracks, picnic spots, camp grounds, swimming holes, beaches, piers, sports grounds, old ruins. Go wild– treasure could be anywhere.
