Geocache Description:


The National Library of Australia is the country's largest reference library. Its role is to ensure that documentary resources of national significance relating to Australia and the Australian people, as well as significant non-Australian library materials, are collected, preserved and made accessible either through the Library itself or through collaborative arrangements with other libraries and information providers.

But alas, if you are like me, you probably don’t visit libraries as much as you used to. Certainly, I haven’t visited one since the last library cache .

Well, here’s an excuse to come visit Australia’s biggest and bestest library, and have a chance to use it as well!

At the posted coordinates, you need to find me in Kenkyusha’s New English-Japanese Dictionary – 5th edition. Once found, note the page number as ABCD.

Note: the book has been replaced by the 6th edition (thanks tronador) - so until I fix the maths, you need to subtract 353 from the page number first, to get ABCD.

Now, the cache location is at S35° 18.(A+B)(B+C)A E149° 07.(A+C)(D-A)(B+D)

Please note, the published location is only accessible between 9am and 5pm. Please ensure the cache is well hidden again (but in plain view!) when you return it! Container is a classic film canister - please BYO Pen!
