    Thunderegg Fossicking with my children

    My sons enjoyed Thunderegg Fossicking so much. It was really difficult to find big and good one, but they were really excited to find "Thunderegg". There are some small crystals in the field. I recommend to bring water with you.

    Good fun!

    We went had a good time digging through the dirt and mud for thunderbirds. The instructions were clear and we found a couple of great rocks which we got to keep for no extra cost! Make sure you bring a change of clothes as we got really dirty!

    Thunder Egg Mining

    This was a fantastic family activity. Kids had an absolute ball mining the thunder eggs and then having some cut in half at the end and revealing the different patterns and colours inside. Staff were amazing and very informative. Definitely recommend 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Great results!

    We loved our experience mining for thunder eggs! Great info and advice before the lovely walk up to the mines. And as we were told, great eggs to be found both after a little digging, and even just on the surface. My daughter found beautiful crystal formations just by looking carefully around the site. Was exciting to get some cut open by Sam, we were very happy with our finds!
