Geocache Description:


Rushing Water Hidden Box
I think this may provide an interesting contrast to Sutton Salt Lake :) Take the turnoff near Outram to the Outram Glen and Museum. A good place to park is at the museum carpark (S45º 51.097' E170º 14.212'). Take the start of the walking track (Whare Track I believe) and keep following it until you get near the clearing and the rushing water (S45º 50.809' E170º 13.993'). Instead of going down to the clearing, carry on towards the more overgrown trail and cross the small tributary into the ferns. You are within about 25m of the cache now :) Good Luck.

This is a letterboxing hybrid. The idea is that you take a notebook to caches you visit, and perhaps your own stamp and ink pad. There is also a stamp and ink pad in the cache. You use the caches stamp in your logbook, and stamp your stamp in the caches logbook. The ink pads and stamps are not exchanged. This way you build up your own logbook or passport of caches you have visited.

Sorry there is not much loot in the cache. It was all I had in the car. This cache didn't have a lot of planning beforehand :) I will make amends next time I return south!

Overall Difficulty: The cache is visible from 5m at the proper angles. It is about a 15 minute walk from the car park. GPS Coverage has been better.

Terrain Difficulty: Relatively easy, slightly undulating to get to the clearing. The terrain is quite steep and possibly slippery around the cache.

Container: The container is a 2.6L snap-lock rectangular container that has been camo-painted, and has the word GEOCACHE painted on the top in yellow.
