    Thunderegg Fossicking with my children

    My sons enjoyed Thunderegg Fossicking so much. It was really difficult to find big and good one, but they were really excited to find "Thunderegg". There are some small crystals in the field. I recommend to bring water with you.

    What and awesome day we all had. We didn't find any big Thundereggs but some lovely small ones that when cut open revealed the colourful crystals inside. Definitely will be returning!

    Great for kids

    Exhausting work. Great to get kids to burn some energy. We like the ones we got cut but it was hard work and to charge for cutting seemed a bit excessive after paying a lot to climb a hill and dig dirt.

    Great fun for the little (and big) diggers

    Kids and adults had a lot of fun digging and finding thunder eggs! Before going I was wondering whether there would be any to find, but there are still plenty around! We would do it again!
