Can you guess what kind of precious stone is found in the town of Sapphire? Since the late 1800s fossickers have been finding these beautiful blue gemstones in the fields surrounding the town and now visitors can also try their luck. The region is home to one of the richest sapphire fields in the southern hemisphere.

Join a half day or full day tour to learn more about the town's opulent history and then go searching for treasure at 'Graves Hill' or 'Big Bessie'. If your fossicking doesn't pay off, you can always pick up a sapphire of your own in one of the gift shops. Other highlights in the area include the 'Big Ring', 'Big Spanner' as well as the 'Big Pick and Shovel'.
