Driving around some lonely bush roads around Dumbleyung in Western Australia I came across this beautiful old Australian Stone Farmhouse, one of the best I have seen in the district.
I could not resist trying my luck with the metal detector hoping to find some old coins and relics.
Driving around rural areas, bush tracks, lonely roads is the best way to find good spots to go metal detecting, bottle and relic hunting, just try and make sure that you always get permission from the owners of the property before you start.
In this case I did not, but I am sure it would have been okay, I still do not know who owns the property.
No doubt this would have to be one of the most beautiful old Australian Homesteads I have seen in the district.
It has motivated me to start a project of making a youtube video of all of the abandoned homesteads around the Dumbleyung area.
Click on the below photo to see a larger view of what I found that day.
I love metal detecting!
One of my Metal Detecting friends Tony Shere, who also helps find peoples lost rings and jewellery has some amazing youtube videos he has made from metal detecting underwater.
This camera looks amazing, the video quality is awesome… and the price is just as good … especially with the Australian Dollar being n even par with the US Dollar.
I am defininately saving my money for a go pro surf camera, this is going to be awesome for when I undertake lost jewellery searches in the water.
These cameras come in a variety of styles, so they can be used for Gold Nugget Metal Detecting and Prospecting also.
When I get one of these Go Pro Cams, I’ll put up a review… I don’t think I’ll be dissapointed!
- HD Helmet HERO
- HD Motorsports HERO
- HD Surf HERO ( As seen on Tony’s YouTube Video Below )
- HD HERO Naked
- HD HERO 960
- SD HERO 170
Check out Tony’s awseome Lost Ring Video he made on youtube using his go pro surf camera and a Ping Pong Bat to find the ring!!!
See more of these go pro video cameras at Ebay and grab a bargain!

Yesterday I received 4 phonecalls from people who had lost their rings whilst swimming on Australia Day.
The first was from a guy whose sister lost her deceased fathers wedding ring whilst swimming in about 6 metres of water at Rottnest Island. Unfortunately I can’t do that job as I don’t have a dive ticket yet. So I passed that job onto one of my goodfriends David who was willing to find the ring.
The next was from a guy who lost his wedding ring whilst swimming near a beach near Trigg Beach, so there may be a chance I will go and look for that ring tomorrow.
I also received a phonecall from a guy whose daughter lost her ring whilst swimming at a beach near Rockingham, so I am heading up to Perth tonight after work to go and search for that ring.
I am pretty hopefull of finding it, as the beaches near Rockingham are quite calm and there are no massive wave movements and the tidal movement is not very strong.
So if you have lost a ring, or any other type of jewellery at home or at the beach give me a call.
I need to do these searches as soon as possible because this Sunday Tropical Cyclone Bianca is predicted to hit the Perth Coast on the early hours of Sunday Morning, so the swell is going to be huge and most likely any lost rings will be lost to the beach gods!
Mind you, have a big storm / cyclone come through the Perth Metropolitan Beaches will be great for Metal Detectorists, as no doubt alot of rings and coins will be dumped on the beaches, so if you love metal detector make sure you head to the Perth beaches this Sunday or Monday and no doubt, you could find some lost treasure!
How much do I charge?
I charge nothing at all to search for your lost item, but my services is based on a reward only if found basis that is, if I find your lost ring, jewellery etc, then it is up to you what you’d like to give me as a reward.
A small fuel surcharge may be required depending on the distance I need to travel.
If I don’t find your lost item, then I don’t expect anything.
I do not hire out my metal detectors.

NEWSFLASH! The Ring Finders Global Metal Detecting Directory is Lauched!
I have a great friend in Canada by the name of Chris Turner who has helped me a great deal with starting me off with my Lost Treasure Metal Detecting Services here in Western Australia. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done to help me, with all of his advice, tips, tricks and knowledge.
Chris is quite a famous person, he is located in Vancouver Canada and has been undertaking his Canada and North American Metal Detecting Services for many years now.
He has helped to find hundreds of rings for people in Vancouver, and has been interviewed on the radio, tv, newspapers, magazines and much more.
Now Chris has started his very own global metal detecting directory, for metal detectorists, enthusiasts and ring finders, from around the world.
Chris’s Metal Detecting website is TheRingFinders.com and it is open to any metal detectorists who wish to advertise there metal detecting services from around the world.
The ring finders website is very new, just a few weeks old, so at the moment there is only 6 professional ring finders listed in the directory, 2 from Australia, including myself, 1 from Canada, 1 from the UK, 1 from Norway and the other from the USA. You can read all about the ring finders in the metal detecting directory
You too can become a ring finder! See here: http://theringfinders.com/join/

The title says it all!
I am heading up to Perth on Thursday to do a couple of Metal Detecting searches for two clients.
Client One informs me that they have buried a stash of money wrapped in foil and enclosed in a jar sealed with a metal lid, thats gotta be one of the strangest phonecalls I have had to date. I asked a few questions, and wondered why the money was buried, but that’s their business and not mine.
I have been told, that all up three jars were buried, two have been successfully recovered by the owner and the person is unable to find the third jar that they have buried. It could be a hard job, as I have been told that the jars were buried in three foot of soil, so I am hoping my Minelab Metal Detectors will get a signal. I have been informed the person has already done a fair bit of digging around, so that could make the mission …. impossible! Of course I am hoping to find the hidden cache, because I have been promised anywhere between $250 and $500 for a reward to find the buried treasure of cold hard cash! I’ll keep you informed.
You’d be surprised the amount of people who bury money!
People hide their money!
Since the beginning of time and still to this day people have hidden their valuables for safekeeping’s. If you ask yourself why… Here are a few reasons.
War time has caused many people throughout history to rush and hide their most valuable possessions (Gold, Silver, Cash, Jewellery & Paintings) in their homes and on their property, for safe keeping. After the war some were able to recover their valuables, many were not as fortunate.
Banks or financial institutions
Many individuals who grew up during the depression are hiding their money. They fear they may experience what their family went through before them. So they hide money as a way to feel secure. And obviously many people do not trust banks, so they hide or bury their lifesavings.
Unfortunatelty, Dementia and Alzheimers Disease affects many people, and obviously this can make people do strange things, such as burying their money and valuables in the backyard. Same goes for people who suffer from gambling problems.
Save it for A Rainy Day
People also hide their money for that rainy day, they think that one day when I retire or get sick, I’ll be okay, because I have this money hidden away … then what happens? BANG … they die suddenly, and no one knows about their hidden stash.
We’ve all hidden our money
Let’s face it, we all hide our money, and most of us, including myself have hidden our money and even forgotten that we’ve hidden our money, then maybe a year or three down the track, we are reading one of our old books, and all of a sudden we turn a page, and there is a couple hundred dollars sitting in between the pages, and we remember … “that’s were I hid it!”
If you feel a close relative may have buried their money, lifesavings, jewels, contact me and I may be able to help you recover it!

Client two, a husband of a lady informs me, his wife who has lost her diamond and gold studded earring, whilst walking on a path in one of the metro suburbs of Perth. So far I have done three metal detecting hire jobs in Perth for lost earrings and I have yet to have any luck on retrieving them. Lost earrings are very hard to find with a metal detector, but I have found earrings on beaches before. So if you have lost a valued piece of jewellery, such as a ring, watch or bracelet, even buried money or jewels and you are thinking of hiring a metal detector to find it, call me first and I’ll be happy to help!
Remember, I don’t charge by the hour, I do my metal detecting hire service based on a reward only if I find your lost item, if I don’t find it, well you don’t have to give me anything!
