Geocache Description:

This cache is located in a beautiful small plantation of Cork Oaks. The texture of the trees and the light canopy is enchanting. Have patience- GPS reception can be a bit erratic under the tree canopy.

Look closely and you will see that the bark from many of these trees has been harvested. I believe that the earliest plantings were made in 1917. The plantation has now been incorporated into the arboretum with good paths through the trees.

The best access is to park at the waypoint and use the underpass. This avoids the need to park on the side of busy William Hovell Drive or to climb any fences. You will need to bring a pen however.

The cache is wired in place, with surrounding camo, to beat the local four legged muggles. You will need to be gentle and remove this in two or three steps. Unscrew the lid of the micro container but do not remove it from its wire. Gently replace the covering camo please.
