Digging The Gemfields of Central Queensland
Deep in the heart of Queensland lies the Central Queensland Gemfields, places like Sapphire, Rubyvale and Emerald dot the Capricorn Highway as you drive inland. Pack your pick and shovel and head out for a Gem Fest! Red Bubble artist rain-dogs took this great photo of the Tropic Of Capricorn sign while off to dig for sapphires but maybe he found amethyst instead by the looks of those precious pieces of quartz! You can buy some great photos of gems from rain-dogs, check out Red Bubble and look him up. The Central Queensland Gemfields, what a great place to visit, take the kids, dig for some gems and see an amazing, rugged part of Australia that might definitely be 'worth your while' seeing! Don't forget to keep an eye out for rain-dogs and his Gemfields art not to mention his nature shots and incredible array of colourful hand-drawn T-shirt designs...but I'll keep them for another Blog.
