How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A popular tourist destination in its own right, plus information available on other local attractions. Take a look at front and rear to see how film set designers can transform appearances. This makeover occurred in November 2012 coinciding with the release of "The Hobbit" movie which was partly filmed nearby.

This is a high muggle area so stealth will be a definite necessity!
Look your best, as you have a high chance of being photographed while doing the business.
Please take care with the hunt, so as not to damage the structure in any way. The cache is not near any plants so don't touch them (they are real !)
We are maintaining this cache as it is regularly visited by many people of all nationalities. It would be great if you could indicate your home country in your log, thanks.
