Geocache Description:

An easy puzzle that, when solved, will take you for a moderate stroll along the Yarra river to a bushland area that sees few visitors.

You will not find the cache at the published location. Although you will find that this is the most convenient place to park while you then continue your detective work on foot. Unless you want to swim the Yarra either approach will involve crossing a bridge.

The Puzzle

Recently I stumbled across six kids in a park arguing about who was responsible for losing their collections. When I interrupted their bickering and asked them what they had lost they replied:

Sam. “A Platypus, Superb Lyrebird, Echidna and a Frill-necked Lizard.”
Stanley. “Two Platypus and an Echidna.”
Steven. “A Coat of arms and two Frill-necked Lizards.”

Elaine. “A mob of Kangaroos, two Platypus and an Echidna.”
Eleanor. “An Echidna and a Frill-necked Lizard.”
Emma. “Five mobs of Kangaroos, two Platypus and a Frill-necked Lizard.”

Can you help them locate their lost treasure?

The Cache

A sistema with a few goodies for trade and a FTF prize for the quick off the mark. Themed swaps would be appreciated. And remember, trade up, trade even or don't trade.
