Geocache Description:

Noticing Macquarie a little bereft of caches, here is one situated in the higher area of the suburb for our first cache. Has a few small swaps and a Turtle TB beginning its slow journey.

Bathurst St is a good parking spot and take the walkway. Do take care when retrieving and replacing cache to avoid it falling out of reach.

The suburb named after Governor Lachlan Macquarie born in Scotland in 1761. He arrived in Sydney Cove on board the "Dromedary" at the end of December 1809, as Lieutenant Colonel of the 73rd Highland Regiment, with his second wife Elizabeth Campbell. He took over officially as NSW Governor on 1st January 1810. Macquarie changed the colony from one of chaos and hopeless despair into visionary hope and achievement. He was open minded, candid, unprejudiced, favourable to constitutional change, legal and administrative reforms, tending in the direction of freedom and democracy. A great believer in private enterprise, Macquarie gave people, who showed a willingness to work hard, every opportunity to prove themselves in this new land. Whether a free man or emancipated convict. His commission also invited him to conciliate the affection of the aborigines and to prescribe that British subjects live in amity and kindness with them. He died in London in 1824, two years after leaving Australia, aged 63 years.
