Geocache Description:

Did you know that Queanbeyan is the Australian version of Hollywood Boulevard? There is even the odd Kiwi dotted here and there!

Please replace the cache exactly as you found it! If not you will ruin the hide!

As you wander Monaro St glance down and look at the hands in the footpath. To find this cache you will have to answer a few questions based on what you see. The shops play havoc with the reception but follow your nose and you can't go wrong. If you have troubles at the GZ with reception let me know.

Starting at the posted coordinates you will see the name and handprints of a well know person. The waypoints are logically placed and you will have to answer the following questions to calculate the GZ. Each star is covered
