Geocache Description:

This cache offers a great view of Pittwater through the treetops and a chance to explore 'The Reserve'

Algona Reserve is located in Bilgola Plateau on the western side of the Barrenjoey Peninsula. The 2.47ha Reserve is above Alfred Parade and below Algona Street. Except along Algona Street, residential properties form its boundaries.

The vegetation is Hawkesbury Sandstone Open-forest dominated by Sydney Peppermint (Eucalyptus piperita).

Grey Gums, a notable feature of Algona Reserve, form a stand in the mown upper part of the Reserve. These are favoured Koala food trees and their claw marks can be seen incised into the trunks. These trees also have hollows suitable for other arboreal mammals, as indicated by numerous smaller scratch marks, and may be used by Sugar Gliders or the threatened Squirrel Glider. The understorey provide scover for small birds, reptiles and frogs.

There is a small childrens' playground... well there used to be, but now there is only one thing to play on (see hint...)
