About The Show

All Starts 12th of September on 7mate at 11:00am
Each week The Weekend Prospector tackles some of Australia’s most famous gold rush regions as one man will risk life and limb each week to take his audience to the edge of your seat with his unquenchable, insatiable thirst for gold.
 
Australia boasts some of the most rugged and most dangerous terrain in the world including extreme deserts, mountainous ranges, exotic beaches and of course the most deadly of them all “The Outback”.
 
Our host and geologist  Andrew Bales has spent the past 35 years unearthing fact from fiction and brushing aside some of the planet’s most deadliest snakes and crocodiles in search of Australia’s hidden Gold.
 
The Weekend Prospector is one man’s quest to discover a bygone era, an era without written records, an era of Chinese whispers and myths of golden reefs and fortune, an era of buried treasures and hardships, turmoil and even murder, an era which will take him a to a place very few have been before and survived in his mission to discover Australian Gold.
