Geocache Description:

The 6th in iamapom's "Melbourne's Lane's" series - highlighting all the cool, weird and funky backstreets that Melbourne is so well known for. Oh and it's perhaps a little trickier than some of the others!

This is Hardware Lane - many restaurants, cafes, pasta places, 2nd hand camera gear, ski shops, a cool fancy dress shop, a Maccas and a car park with a weird entrance along the laneway. A nice place. Please don't get run over by entering vehicles !! The cache is the usual magnetic cache.. It's small of course - and only contains log books - but no pen. It's not a nano (phew I hear you say!). This one is grey/silver in colour. The magnets are fairly weak - so please don't add anything unless its really small and light. It's at shoe level - so you will need your usual "tie the shoe lace trick". As the sign clearly say - the GZ is sometimes closed off at various times of the day - and this differs from day to day. But apparently it's fully accessible 24/7 at the weekends. At the right times - this could be very easy - at other times - quite tricky. So it's really not a 24/7 cache - but at the right times it could be a drive-by cache - you could even use your car as cover. There are plenty of muggles around this area too - so beware. This cache was inspired by a recent find of mine in Sydney @ GCVW6X. :-)
