Geocache Description:

A single offset multicache located in the Canberra Arboretum.

At the posted coordinates you will find another piece of Arboretum Art! This piece is perched high up on the hill with magnificent views over Canberra. And what might you find perched so high up the hill – an eagle of course! Now this is no ordinary eagle. This eagle just likes to sit on the edge of its nest, and look over Canberra. I’m sure it would get an even better view if it flew higher, but I don’t think it could do that.

To find the cache, determine the digits A-J below, and then substitute into the coordinates for GZ.

A=number of links in the chain hanging to the eagle's left (>4)
B=number of long feathers in the eagles tail ÷ 2
C=number of words on the anchor below the eagle
DEF= the artwork’s number -1
G= total number of boat propellers x D
H= total number of spanners used in building the nest
J=number of eggs in the nest

Checksum A+B+C+D+E+F+G+J=36

Final location GZ = 35 17.ABC 149 0F.EGJ
