What is Metal Detecting?

Metal detecting is like treasure hunting. Enthusiasts come from all walks of life, and whether it is gold you are looking for, or relics/coins etc. the rewards can be very satisfying. Most importantly it is lots of fun! Combined with camping  and bushwalking, metal detecting can contribute to a healthy family lifestyle.

The excitement of discovery is what it is all about! The sound of the detector beeping could just be a rusty old nail, but on the other hand it could be the sound of gold, a diamond ring or other treasure!  It’s a magical moment when you dig up something special, be it gold, jewellery or other special treasure.

Many enthusiasts choose to specialise in a particular  type of metal detecting, for example underwater or beach detecting. Different types of detecting require  a slightly different technology and technique.   We stock detectors that will cater to the needs of all detecting types and preferences.
