Geocache Description:

A lovely lookout point, with a cache hidden from muggles but not from cachers!

This is the last parking area before the Zig-Zag becomes one-way and it's also near one of the best views over the city and plains.

This is rather a high-traffic area and, going by the occasional discarded can or bottle, more by drunken drongoes than respectful muggles. So the cache is disguised under an artificial version of a common natural object. It shouldn't be hard to spot since you're looking for it; Papa Bear's artistic skills don't run much to sculpture (or any other visual artform!) It's surrounded by other typical cache-hiding places, but it stands alone.

Once you've found the cache, look West and you should see the airport tower. Follow the path leading that way for about 100m and you'll come to a spot with great views across the big beach that is Perth!

The reason for the name is that this seems to be the place that the fires of March 2007 were deliberately lit by some sociopathic firebug. The fire wiped out much of this area of Gooseberry Hill National Park but was stopped before any houses were damaged. Two caches were burnt, though, one of them ours!

After your photos or just enjoyment of the view, head on down the Zig Zag (always pleasant, even if you've done it before) and there's two or three caches you can pick up on the way down. One's easy, one's fairly easy and the Bear_Left ones aren't all that easy, but you enjoy a challenge, don't you?
