Agate Creek, Queensland, Australia

Australia's premier agate locality. The first report of the locality in the literature was in the 1892 book Opals and Agates by Nehemiah Bartley.

Bartley had visited the very remote location and gave the following account: “And how shall I describe this Sinbad's Valley, where agates are, the only real actual treasury of this kind on the face of the earth? …here we have the central valley itself, walled with cliffs, and grass-grown in places, and, in the centre, filled with agates of every size, shape, and colour, with more and more of them if you only choose to dig under the grass and soil at the sides, and unearth the buried treasures; while in the middle of the dry channel, where water runs in wet seasons, you may wade in tons of agates, sardonyx, onyx, and carnelian; and such ones, too!”
