Geocache Description:

A large cache is in a recently established reserve.

Cache is located in the recently established and planted 'Dalmore Reserve'. This land was once owned by the Dominicans, who also owned and operated Aquinas College just down the hill. The area of the reserve was covered in pine, with the exception of a group of deciduous trees in the centre layed out in a cross.

Now the pine trees have gone, making way for the establishment of the reserve and what should be a more enjoyable space to use in the future. In 2009 3000 New Zealand natives have been planted in this area, but for now there is a stunning and unique view of Dunedin to be seen.

Being relatively unknown and off the beaten track there is never many others around and finding a large stump to pearch on and admire the view is not hard. The long grass and amount of space make it a great place to take dogs for a run around.

Entry to the reserve is from Allenby Ave in Pine Hill. The cache is a square 15 litre bucket hidden in the bushes on the edge of the reserve. You do not need to go far into the bushes to find and certainly do not need to go down the steep bank further into the bush. However, you will need to wade through the long grass and piles of pine tree leftovers. The lid of the bucket can be difficult to open but if you look closely there are instructions on the lid, follow them and it's not too hard. Please place the lid back on securely! On placing it contained a log book and a number of trading items. Coordinate accuracy was ± 2m when placed.
