Geocache Description:

This cache has been placed to highlight the convergence of specific co-ordinates of Latitude and Longitude - what is termed as a confluence.

The access to this cache is subject to seasonal road closures but may also be affected by fires - please ensure that you plan your trip to the National Park and check the status of the area before attempting this cache. 

Seasonal road closures in the Alpine National Park extend from around the June long weekend to the beginning of November however the Parks Victoria website will be your best directive for the specific dates of each year.

To access this cache continue along the Buckland Valley Road which becomes Selwyn Creek Road.  Turn left onto Mount Murray Track.  Mount Murray Track is subject to a seasonally closed gate at Coghill Creek (NOTE: as at May 2013 the gate is already closed due to bushfire activity in the area).  This is a 4WD only track when open as there are 2 water crossings (Coghill Creek and Buckland River).  From the seasonal road closure it is approximately 4klm to the cache (the first 3klm are across gently undulating terrain).  The last kilometre needs to be completed on foot, there is no formed walking path and it is quite steep so good footwear is essential.  The soil is loose therefore care should be taken.  At the time of placement bushfire activity had substantially reduced the ground cover however you will need to dress appropriately as the access to GZ may become more dense and difficult to negotiate with regrowth. 

Please ensure that you treat the National Park with respect and leave no trace.  The cache is positioned in a rock cairn at the place our GPSr’s agreed was the point of the Latitude and Longitude convergence HOWEVER GPS coverage is quite sketchy and as we all know no one GPS unit will be absolute.  Find your “sweet spot” which should be in the immediate area and our challenge to you is capturing your GPS with the magic co-ordinates on camera.
