Diamond Gully Flinders Island

Walk 9 of the ‘The Walks of Flinders Island’ book, Diamond Gully is a pleasant and leisurely walk around the superb Killiecrankie Bay and will place you right in the heart of ‘Diamond Country’. Take your sieves or obtain them from the gem shop in Whitemark ‘Killiecrankie Enterprises’. This ‘mining’ expedition is best done at low tide, so remember to check the tides before travelling to Killiecrankie. Patient fossicking should reward the prospector with some topaz with 10-20 minutes, albeit usually of a small size. Good Luck! Take coat and drinking water. This creek is often dry but successful fossicking can be undertaken using the abundant seawater. See other walks on Stacky’s Bright and Old Mans Head.
