Festive fossickers are enduring peak heat in Tibooburra to search for gold.
While the traditional gold season usually spans from March to September/October, publican at Toole’s Family Hotel, Kathy Toole, confirmed that the rumours of hardy summer prospectors in Corner Country were correct.
“We’ve had quite a few prospectors from Victoria and Queensland in. It’s totally out of season, but they seem to be coping with the heat OK,” she said.
