Hi All, So I have been thinking about giving metal detecting a shot lately. I live in Melbourne and would be happy to drive 2-3 hours to known detecting spots (Bendigo, Ballarat etc). How does one get started with this hobby? Do any metal detecting tours or hobby groups exist in Victoria that teach people metal detecting? So far i have found that you need a Miners Right for detecting. Can you rent metal detectors and other equipment? I would like to try metal detecting out for a couple of times before going ahead and making any purchases of detector, tools etc. Any feedback/suggestions are appreciated. Thank You.
