Aussie detectorist, the Brand, started in Yeppoon in 2015 with some big dreams 20 XP Deus machines and not much else, But Now its time to close a door on the Aussie Detectorist story and open up another One.
Over the Last few years the Aussie Detectorist Brand has been run from the sunny beachside town of Yeppoon in Central Queensland. A place I have called home for over 20 years, a Place I brought my Kids up in.
But Like many regional towns in Australia there is very little support and infrastructure for a growing business that relies on transport companies so heavily.
I really did try to keep the business in the area as I own a house there but the reality is that the Aussie Detectorist and XP Metal Detectors brands both needed a more appropriate home than the spare room in my tiny house.
So It’s Good bye Yeppoon and Hello to our new Location In Mayfield West, Newcastle NSW
This decision has not been made lightly and many months of research and sleepless nights have culminated in a new premises to be open in the First week of November 2019.
The new Premises will be open to the Public and trading hours are
Monday – Sat 9-5pm and Sunday by appointment.
Newcastle will have a Metal detecting store again and Its with great pride that The Aussie Detectorist Metal Detecting shop will progress from Online only to also having a store you can walk into.
The New premises will be the ONLY stockist of XP Metal Detectors, Aussie Detectorist Detectorwear, GrayGhost and DetectorPro Lines in NSW.
WE Also Carry the FULL Range of Minelab Metal Detectors and Accessories.
The store will add some exciting new additions in the future as well.
All the Old favorites Like Tyger Diggers will also be available.
Like the Initial business in 2015 we will slowly grow the range as we negotiate with new suppliers and companies both here in Australia and Overseas.
The first thing we will begin to create is the community of Metal detectorists in the area. The shop will be a place you can come and hang out at, talk detecting, get some questions or answered or offer your advice to others. I might even put in a coffee machine?? UPDATE Coffee machine is IN!
Already we are working towards several Live events in the area and to re-ignite the metal detecting, Prospecting and treasure hunting scene in the Greater Hunter Region and beyond.
As with the 2500+ Customers that have dealt with Aussie Detectorist and myself I would say 99% of them are pretty happy with the service and product quality. Like all businesses and people I have made mistakes along the way, But I have always tried to do my best for the brands I represent and for the people that choose to use those brands.
I am looking forward to this new opportunity and to growing both the hobby and the opportunities for the locals of the Newcastle region to get together and have some fun.
The Metal Detecting world championship at Gympie September 25 2020 will go ahead as planned. Tickets are on Sale NOW.
New Castle training Dayz are being worked out and dates will be announced in the next post and on social media.
I Look forward to seeing you at the new premises.
