Geocache Description:



This amazing cache is made up of five physical caches around the world.

Each cache contains the coordinates to the next one. The first continent is America, followed by Africa, Oceania/Australia, Asia and Europe.

You have two ways of getting this cache by doing a trip around the world (this is the best way, I would love to do it) or gathering a world wide team of friends to help with the search.

RULES

  1. In Each cache around the world, the finder must log and write the team members so far. This way we can confirm that a real world wide team is working together.
    Example: In America Cache, the local finder must write in the found it log the name of the Europe team member.
    In South Africa Cache, the local finder must write the in the found it log the names of Europe and Americas team members.
    And so on...
    In the last cache, the local finder must write in the found it log the names of all team members.
  2. To show that they are a real team. All team members must write notes on all the steps around the world.

VERY IMPORTANT
ALL LOGS AND NOTES MUST BE WRITTEN IN ENGLISH.


Geocaching rules says that only the team/person that finds and signs the log book can register the found it.
The others must only write notes.

Oceania leg

The Oceania cache is located near Australia's first city - Sydney.


Looking along the nearby coastline.

This area, close to what is now called South Head, was home to many Aboriginal tribes for 40,000 years or more.

Before European settlement the area was inhabited by the Birrabirragal people of the Eora language group.

In 1788, the First Fleet sailed past this point and entered the harbour closeby to form the colony of Port Jackson, approximately 10 kilometres west of here.


Australia's first lighthouse was built nearby in 1818.

Over the past 220 years, the area has watched as the colony of Port Jackson has grown to become the city of Sydney.

The cache sits in an area that is very popular with whale watchers, spectators of the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race and general sightseers.

Note: The co-ordinates listed above at not those of the cache - they're actually a few hundreds metres out into the ocean.

You must form a team and wait for your South African colleague to provide you with the actual co-ordinates, which are hidden in their cache.

In your cache will be the co-ordinates for the Japanese cache, which you must forward on to your team.

Remember, you must log this cache as a note when you have found it and can only change this to a find when your Portugese colleague has found the final cache.

A big thank you to Rui from SPY_Team for coordinating the development of this cache, and to my other team members in placing their caches around the world.
