Geocache Description:

A lovely spot on the approach to the main parking area of the Orroral Valley.

This cache has been placed in connection with our Picnic at Orroral event, and is a short scramble off the road that runs through the valley. While it was very very dry when we placed the cache, it has rained a number of times since and we should warn that the walk along the rock platform can be a bit slippery.

This addictive sport has given us so many excellent experiences, particularly in Namadgi National Park. So to log this cache we want you to describe your Personal Best in caching. By no means does that have to be a super human physical effort. It may be your first FTF, it may be great time finding a cache at night, it may a superb location on a rocky headland or a sneaky little micro grabbed when the security patrol was looking the other way!

We ask that you describe your PB on line so we can all enjoy it. Of course you can also log your PB experience in the physical logbook too.

To get things rolling here's our own PBs. Mr W's remembers his PB to be solving A Geocaching Drama in Three Acts, largely unaided, over a couple of nights of insomnia, and then the significant effort to go out and make a FTF on the cache. My PB is without doubt climbing up to The Top ACT - Bimberi Wilderness, another Mtbikeroz cache on the magnificent summit of Mount Bimberi. McPhan and I walked several kms with overnight packs, camped at Oldfields hut, then walked another 16km return to log one cache, and it was worth every step. See the picture below - windswept snowgums, rocky tors and the views into Koscuiszko NP towards Mt Jagungal and the Main Range.



Our cache is a short walk over lovely granite slabs with a good view across the valley down to the Orroral Homestead. The cache contains an unactivated FTF coin for the FTF.
