Canvastown / Golden Bay

Hello,
I am new to the Nelson area and have read on here that Canvastown would be a good starting location to do some panning and detecting. Is there any particular spot I am allowed to go there? or would I have to use the camp ground area at Pinedale camp site only?

I will be keen to also head out to Golden Bay area at a later date.

I have done all my gold detecting in Central Victoria, so the areas here are all new to me.

Keen to get some shiny stuff!
Thanks,
Troy.
