Geocache Description:

The cache is a plastic sistema containing a stamp and log book. At the time of publishing this is WA's second Letterbox Hybrid Cache. This means a lot of people have only done one cache of this type and only one person (Urch) owns one. Therefore there must be a deficit of the Letterbox Hybrid icons on many profiles. This cache has been placed to rectify the situation (not to mention getting one of those icons for our profile!)


The cache is called The Green Angel because of the resources that were available at the time. However the original stamp was destroyed in a fire and has been replaced. The site has been chosen because it looked relaxing when we were hunting for a spot. It also means that there are more types of caches in this great bushland. A limestone path can be followed to the cache however it does get a little steep in places.

What is Letterboxing?

The first letterbox was placed by James Perrott in 1854 on Dartmoor, UK. The idea was for a walker to leave a message for the next walker to collect. Since then it has grown to become a popular pastime across the UK and USA.

Letterboxes contain an ink stamp and logbook. The finder will use the stamp to stamp their personal book as proof of visiting the box. They then use their own personal stamp to stamp the logbook to show that they were there. The idea being to collect as many stamp impressions as possible. Traditionally each letterbox would contain a unique stamp that had been hand carved or specially commissioned.

The purists use a compass, map and clues to find the letterbox. Geocaching has an obvious cross-over with letterboxing, hence the letterbox hybrid cache.

This letterbox hybrid use clues and coordinates to give the final location.

What do you need?

Hopefully more caches of this type will eventuate (hint hint) so it would be advantageous to have the following items - your own personal rubber stamp (this can be specially designed or select one from a cheap shop or the kids' craft box), a personal log book with unlined pages to record your visit and an ink pad in case one isn't provided (also found at the cheap shop).

What do you do?

Once you have found the cache, use your stamp in the log book and write a comment as usual. Then use the stamp included in the cache to stamp your personal log book. Do bring your own ink pad. As this is a letterbox hybrid cache there are no trade items however there is room for T.Bs and Geocoins.

Where is the cache?

Go to the listed coordinates. This should see you standing in the middle of a limestone path. Walk 15m at a bearing of 267 degrees.


The stamp is not a trade item and must remain in the box so other teams can record their visit.
