Public Fossicking Areas

Hi people, I,m after a bit of info regarding a couple of the public fossicking areas.
The first one is Jones Creek just out of Ross. Has anyone done any good there, how easy is it to get in to where you might find gold, etc.
The second place is Shamrock Creek, I,ve seen a couple of videos I think. Same questions as before, are any of these two worth going for a looksee. I,m heading over to the coast in October and will be staying just below Ross. Will have limited time to suss tthese spots out so any info would be greatly appreciated.
Would also happily pay to have try on someones claim around that area if thats an option !
Many Thanks
