paleosanta posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsIm heading to Brisbane Australia for the annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting in October with several Rowan University Professors/Paleontologists and I am trying to research the rules for collecting fossils in Australia. I know we will each need to obtain a fossicking licence but we would greatly appreciate any knowledge on the rules for fossil collecting while we are in Cairns and Brisbane. Thanks in advance
I’ve read over and over again on some older threads that you cannot hunt within any of the state’s water management districts and wanted to clear up some misconceptions without replying to an old thread. I worked at SJRWMD for 2 years before I got tired of the low pay. 1) The entire state is in a WMD. From the sand dunes inwards, you are in their jurisdiction. But this just applies to water conservation, stormwater, taxes, etc. Nothing regarding fossil hunting, just the actions of landowners and business. 2) They do not own navigable waterways, and in no way regulate what you can do on them, as an individual. 3) They do own lots of land, you cannot dig on them as you cannot dig on ANY public land. The short and sweet. The WMD’s do not affect our fossil hunting in public waterway, regardless of what any power tripping FWC officer may believe.
