There are TWO Bessie fossicking areas: Big Bessie to the north of the marker, Little Bessie to the south (and mostly west).

Controlled by Qld Dept Mines and Energy. Camping permit should be bought in advance either online or from local agent.
See Brochure tab for map. The numbers on the map correspond to markers around the reserves.

Fossicking itself requires a separate licence.

The Retreat Creek on the southern boundary is normally dry.

Strong Optus signal (Telstra unknown)
