Geocache Description:

Chirp is a multi-stage cache celebrating the Garmin Chirp and those compatible GPS receivers. However if you have an older Garmin, a Magellan or other GPS you can still find it, it will just be a bit more difficult.

For those with Chirp compatible devices (Dakota 20, Oregon 300, 400, 450, 550, GPSMAP 62 and 78 series) just go to the listed coordinates, link to the Chirp and obtain the final coordinates. You may need to download the latest firmware before leaving home to ensure connectivity.

For those without chirpy receivers you will find a container at the listed coordinates. Inside will be the coordinates of a second stage. Inside that a third, then a fourth will give you the final coordinates. You will walk further than the chirpy people but you should be able to complete the series in about an hour.

The tracks will provide easy going on gentle to moderate slopes. The non-chirpers will have to leave the tracks briefly to retrieve their clues.

The Kenneth Stirling Conservation Park is a landscape of hilly uplands on sandstone and shale with long smooth but sometime rugged slopes. The vegetation varies greatly from the lower to higher slopes. A creek line is dominated by Candlebark and Cup Gum, Tea-tree, Blackwood and Golden Wattle, while the higher slopes support open forests of stringybark. This section, Wotton Scrub, is a particularly lovely forest. For those interested in real chirps the park is home to more than thirty species of birds. Mammals include Koalas, Western Grey Kangaroos, Echidnas and the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot.

Bonus points for those who post a photo of the leafless saprophitic Hyacinth orchid which flowers through summer. Double bonus if you take the photo on your Garmin 550, Magellan Explorist 510 or 610 or any other camera-equipped GPS.

There may also be some other caches nearby.
