Willows Gemfields is about a 45 minute drive west of Emerald along the Capricorn Highway. The Gemfields area is known for having unusually coloured sapphires. Fossicking in the Gemfields is easy with equipment hire available, you can even get your fossicking license in Anakie. Willows Gemfields has caravan park accommodation and also offers walk-in-mine tours and a fossicking park, where you can learn to recognise and find sapphires from the earth. Willows Gemfields service station only has unleaded fuel, and the nearest hospital in the Gemfields is located at Emerald.
