Geocache Description:

This is a letterbox cache which is a hybrid of both geocaching and letterboxing. You all know about geocaching, so what is letterboxing? See below for more details..


What sort of mail do you like? There are many types such as air mail, sea mail, email, junk mail, mangomail, royal mail, redirected mail, etc. Our favourite is snail mail. It is always great to have something physical in your hands that someone has taken time and effort to put together.

When you participate in letterboxing, you have your own personal physical log book in your hands that you use to keep track of letterboxes you have visited.

Letterboxing, much like geocaching, is a hobby that combines elements of hiking, treasure hunting and creative expression into an activity that the whole family can enjoy. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues that are posted on the Internet, and then record their discovery in their personal journal with the help of a rubber stamp that's part of the letterbox. In addition, letterboxers have their own personal stamps which they use to stamp into the letterbox's log book. While letterboxing hasn't really taken off yet in Australia, it is huge in the UK and North America

Clues of where to find letterboxes are on sites such as www.letterboxing.org (predominantly North American but growing elsewhere) and www.atlasquest.com.

The stamp in the cache is to be used for letterboxing,IT IS NOT A SWAP, PLEASE LEAVE. These are usually hand crafted stamps unique to that letterbox. Until we can get hold of the materials to create our own stamp, there is a commercially produced stamp in there.
