Going Fossicking? (QLD)
While the guide mentions unoccupied land as available to fossick on and so leads to the impression there is unoccupied land in QLD, no one appears to be able to identify where there is any unoccupied land in QLD, as legally defined. So you cannot assume any land is unoccupied for the purpose of fossicking. Legal Definitions of Unoccupied Land
