Geocache Description:



The amphitheatre is a unique and magical place - and I hope you enjoy it like I do.

The coordinates for the Amphitheatre are S 35° 3?.??? E 148° 5?.???

You can find the missing eight digits only in the central 19 hexagons (see attached image). Remember you only need the first eight in the sequence. I need to also tell you that if eleven is west then north is less.

You will need MS Powerpoint 2003 Viewer to view this powerpoint presentation. It has photos and information about the physical location. The 8 missing digits are the password. Due to a quirk, you may be prompted twice for a password. The first password prompt is to get the password to open and read the document. The second password prompt is to get a password to modify the document - do not enter any password the second time, just select the Read Only button.


You can check your answers for this puzzle on GeoChecker.com.
