NathanaelB: Congrats "Army_Stealth" for last to find, if that's a thing. I'm archiving this cache on conservation and wildlife habitat ground for reasons you can read more about on my blog post http://www.purecaffeine.com/blog/photography/geocaching-in-sensitive-conservation-areas-in-canberra/

I'll remove the physical cache container in a week or two.

Geocache Description:

Explore the Bottom Pinnacle paddock that is currently unleased land and being assessed by the ACT Government for inclusion in The Pinnacle Nature Reserve to the north.


The cache is in the middle of the Bottom Pinnacle paddock at the top of a rock-strewn slope that leads down into a swampy gully. The soil here is poor and shallow so only some sparse grass and herbs are growing on this slope.

Watch your footing and don't twist your ankle!

The cache gives you a nice view of the Bottom Pinnacle grasslands and the woodland trees to the north and north-west consisting of Scribbly gum (Eucalyptus rossii), Yellow box (E. melliodora) and Blakely's Red Gum (E. blakelyi).

The cache Related Web Page URL takes you to my photo blog post that includes some pics of the Bottom Pinnacle taken in early morning fog as well as the rest of The Pinnacle Nature Reserve.

Congrats Garschdi for FTF, and glad this cache is popular unlike some of my more remote caches in NZ; this is hide № 4 for me so far. Hope people are enjoying exploring this new area adjacent to The Pinnacle; the lease on Kama Paddock to the west (same side of William Hovell) has also expired but is not planned for inclusion in the nature reserve and may be occasionally grazed for fire fuel control.
