Geocache Description:

Birrarung Marr is situated on the North Bank of the Yarra River next to Federation Square.  The name means "river of mists" and "river bank" in the Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.


From Federation Square, the park consists of three terraces of contrasting grass and sand. The Lower Terrace follows the river bank and retains sections of the original avenue of elm trees. The Middle Terrace hosts temporary events linked to activities held at the MCG or Melbourne Park, while the Upper Terrace has views of the city skyline.

If you’re visiting Birrarung Marr with children, drop into the children’s art centre and gallery to see what activity program is under way, or visit the playground’s collection of slides and sandpits.

The Birrarung Wilam installation celebrates the diversity of Victoria’s indigenous culture by interpreting stories through public artworks. A winding pathway acknowledges the significance of the eel as a traditional food source and a semicircle of metal shields represents each of the five groups of the Kulin Nation.

Other features of Birrarung Marr include Deborah Halpern’s two-headed Angel sculpture and the Federation Bells, ringing out three times daily with different compositions. The park’s William Barak pedestrian bridge leads directly to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

At all times this is a high muggle area, muggles may approach in every direction.  You are looking for a film sized container, containing a pencil.  No room for swaps i am afraid.  Please only attempt this cache if you are prepared to return the cache to its original position.This is version four of the container. Thanks for your help keeping cache safe.
