This multicache begins at the start of the Riverside Trail, which runs along the northside of the Parramatta River.

Each colour represents a chapter and interpretive signs explain history.

To find the cache you must take a stroll along the Riverside Trail, stopping at each board and reading the information to answer the following questions.

The questions may not correspond with the order of the boards and some boards have no question associated with them. The aim of this cache is to encourage you to read all the boards and learn about the region's history.
