We visited just to view some local gems. We came away with a lot of knowledge about gem stones, fossicking and the local gem fields. Thankyou.

One buys a bucket and starts by sifting and discarding the dirt, washing and checking for gem stones. You are assisted by very able staff. I found a couple of topaz, one of which I had made into a pendant - very happy with the result. Arrived as promised by Pam on the due date too.

So glad you enjoyed your day here. I remember making your pendant and yes it did come together really well. I hope you wear it and enjoy it. Thank you.

On our road trip from Cairns to Darwin via the Savannah Way, we had this place as one of our interesting places to visit.

What a disappointment.

We circled the little shop at least three times, the person manning the shop didn’t even acknowledge our entrance let alone ask us if we needed assistance.

They were too busy talking to another customer so after 30mins of looking at the expensive items for sale we decided to gap it.

Unless you are stopping in to purchase a fossicking licence I would give this place a miss.

So sorry you were disappointed with your expectations not met. We do offer a full range of products from the lower price right through to the hand-made 'special' items. Shame you didn't have the time to wait till you could have had all your questions answered.

Stopped in here before heading out for a fossick at O' Briens creek, the owners showed us some of the samples of topaz they had found , as well as other local gems, and gave us clear directions on where to go, we hired some extra equipment from them . Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Bought the required licence - hired necessary equipment and drove along a road that would shake the bones out of your body. Found the fossicking site and commenced digging and sieving. Nothing but quartz. No gems, just a beautiful landscape marred by the holes of previous fossickers. No recommendations at all. Cost? $51.33 for a wasted trip.

The shop got a great selection of jewelry and rocks in all forms and shapes.
Little cafe attached and small range of basic groceries.
Lovely friendly couple is running the place, lovely garden to have a break/cuppa/meal in, recommended!

We purchased a fossicking permit at the store. The friendly owner showed us samples of the gems so we knew what to look for.
The store also sold beautiful jewellery and various other lovely merchandise. Definitely worth a visit.

Has a good display of local gems found by them over time.
Really not much else to see. Cafe attached if in need of a coffee.

I was enthused by others' reviews if this attraction, but disapointed. I visited in October, just after the tourist season, so this attraction, like most others in Mt Surprise, was in the process of winding back activies. The manager was friendly, and helpful with you the information we wanted. But the advertised attractions weren't happening ... coffee wasn't available, faceting demos weren't running. To be fair, the manager did offer to put on a demonstration for our group, but we decided to move on rather than wait until the afternoon. For serious gem hunters, equipment and information was available. But if, like me, you are there for general interest, stick to the tourist season.

We stopped in at the Mount Surprise Gem Den for an hour or so last week when we were passing through and it was a great place to learn about local minerals, stones and gems. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable and you can fossick for your own gems if you want to, we were only passing through but would love to come back to the area and try our hand at making our fortunes haha. Nice place for a stop.
