    This is for the ones that do some gold fossicking, i am doing a rd trip in new from Qld down to Vic and want to do some gold fossicking on the way.

    I have about $500 to spend on a detector, what is a half decent entry level one please, and thanks in advance...

    You wont get a decent entry level gold machine for $500. That wont even cover the cost of accessories and spare parts.

    A decent pick costs $80-100 and I advise you have 2 in case 1 breaks. A spare or extra search coil is worth $300-500. Headphones around $100.

    Not a cheap hobby.
