We would like to thank the people who have visited Lanikai. Over recent times we have had many people visiting who enjoy looking for gold. We would like to advise everyone on the rules we have for looking for gold on Lanikai.
When looking for gold we ask that everyone only uses gold pans. This means NO using a sluice or dredge.
No bringing buckets of dirt back to the camping ground, please leave the dirt in its original location.
No digging in the banks of the creeks and gully's, this damages the creeks and causes erosion.
Access to the creek is via the creek pool track, all other tracks are for walking only.
Gold detectors may be used however please ensure that any diggings are filled in .
We appreciate that there are a lot of rules however please remember that this is our home and we love it.
