Fossicking Areas Available on Map Viewer

Tasmania's designated fossicking areas are available as a layer on the map viewer accessable via this website. The areas clearly define where fossicking is permitted without a prospecting licence. Anyone considering visiting a fossicking site should first view this layer in order to gain an understaning of the boundaries of their intended fossicking destination.

The layer is accessed by opening the map viewer, clicking the LAYERS tab on the right of the screen and selecting Add Layer +.

Once this has been done, a Manage Layers menu will appear. From there, select Fossicking Areas to open the boundaries and zoom to the fossicking locaiton of choice.
