Dig It Up was established in early 2010 with the goal of supplying not only palaeontology, geology, and archaeology professionals, but students, amateurs, juniors, seniors, and the interested public at large, with the basic tools, know-how and gear for digging up Australia’s ancient past. Dig It Up provides the right gear for digging it right, and at an affordable price. We stock a variety of equipment ranging from your general  digging needs (rock hammers, chisels etc.),

to safety gear (first aid kits, gloves, goggles etc.), plus your laboratory requirements (brushes, tweezers etc.). For the first time, you can get everything that you need from the same place, and best of all, its local. The equipment here is the gear that I use myself- everything at Dig It Up is tried and tested. If I don’t use it or like it, I won’t sell it.

Can’t find something here that you need? Technical questions? No problem, just give us a shout and we’ll see what we can come up with for you. Dig It Up was established with you in mind. It doesn’t matter if you are a member of the general public, a professional, a student, or a keen amateur, there is something here for you – we guarantee it.

The thing about Dig It Up is that it isn’t your standard “click-in, buy some stuff, then never come back”- kind of website. That’s just not the site that I wanted. Rather, I hope that you’ll see that Dig It Up goes beyond the very basics. How? Check it it out, browse around- the site is more than just a place to buy tools and equipment. There’s heaps of information not only on the products themselves, but perhaps even more importantly, tips on how to use the gear. Plus we’ve got extensive info on tool maintenance and specs in our Dig It Right pages; there’s options for you to review individual products personally online; links to the latest news going on in the earth sciences; info on fieldtrips; and an open forum where we invite you to discuss pretty much whatever you want, on anything broadly related to the field. Please, check out this website and tell me what you think in theforum or you can contact us directly. And finally, best of luck with all of your digging needs.
