Geocache Description:

As the football season draws to an end, for some it cant come soon
enough, yet for others its a time for sadness. For some, its an
excuse to go caching ! Caching on a grand scale, yet on a street
view also. Answer some questions relating to our trip, and the
cache will be yours. The answer to each question should be
substituted for the letter or number indicated. It should all make
sense eventually.

The cache is not at the listed coordinates

We start our trip at Homebush and the former Olympic Stadium, where the Bulldogs haven't really barked. There was a silver LandCruiser parked on the Boulevard. How many roof bars are on it? This is A

We headed south next to 'The Shire', and Shark Park, only to find they were doing some renovations.
How many workers were/are standing around the rear of the truck unloading what i thought was steel girders B

Maybe there will be more action down the 'Gong. WIN
Stadium, optimistically named, advertises a team on a bill board that "Never say die".
C.Was that team the Steelers(7),the Falcons (8), the Hawks (9), or the Dragons (0)?

Canberra is a cold and boring place, or so the story goes. hence the attraction to sports and the occaisonal mystery cache. We found Bruce stadium quiet, but the AIS nearby was interesting.
D. How many sports can you see featured on the large signs near Braybrooke St and Leverrier Cr. ? They include such sports as soccer and volleyball. I think one of the kids was car sick near here so be careful where you tread.

Did I say Canberra was cold ? You should try Melbourne. I did see a coach outside Telstra Dome, where the Storm have yet to fill its 50000+ seats despite being frontrunners for the last few years.
For E, was it from Wangaratta (4), Bendigo (5), Ballarat (6), or Mount Buggery (7)?

Too cold for you. Lets head way north. We filled up at the Mobil across the road from the Knights home ground in Newcastle.
F Was the dearest fuel there 138.5 (1), 145.8 (2), 149.9 (3), OR 162.1 (4) cpl ?

To Queensland. Skilled Park - home of the Gold Coast Titans. Again, more optimistic names.
G How many cars can you see at the roundabout near East lane? enough said...

I was going to finish the trip off at Parramatta Stadium, but parking was too much.
H how many dollars did they want ? Way too much I reckon.

You would - however - pay almost anything to park at Bookvale Oval and see the mighty Sea-Eagles play. But parking is as scarce as hens teeth. We had to park across the road next to a dry cleaners. The building was orange i think, and its street number was I.

Substitute your findings into the following coordinates.
South 33. 2+DxH. I-173
East 150. 58-G. Ax100 +(BxExF)+C+D
