Gemtree is a popular destination not only for the locals, but for the fans of
fossicking. As the Gateway to the gem fields of Central Australia, you will join
fellow fossickers on tag-along tours in search of garnets and zircons.
also offers the opportunity for some great bird watching, especially in the
early morning and late afternoon. Visitors and those staying overnight can watch
as a variety of birds congregate at the waters edge.
We were lucky to see
flocks of budgerigars. Hard to capture on our little digital camera.
