Geocache Description:

A picturesque location just 20 minutes from walk from an old Tasmanian city

Ice cream container with some small toys, coins of differnt countries and Australian stamps.
Update: To future finders,
This cache has a bit of history being one of the first caches in Tasmania, that is why I took over the maintenance of it from Jason when he lost interest and didn't just let it die. It has frustrated more than one cacher; including myself (4 or 5 visits before a find), throughout it's life for a few reasons, one being it's on a slope, another that it is off trail and probably the main one being that the co-ordinates are a little off. I have resisted the urge to alter the original co-ordinates that were provided by Jason all those years ago because it can be seen as a "right of passage" as it were to find this Launceston cache with the original information, it can be found and has been found before other cachers included updates in their logs; I for example found the cache using a 1:25,000 map and a ruler from the local library because I didn't have a GPS at the time - it can be found, but maybe not in the timescale afforded by cachers these days. So you can either use the updated co-ordinates from other cachers, or use Jason's data and use trial & error to find the cache in the spirit of caching past. It's not one for 'numbers' people, it is I guess what you would call an "Old School" cache.
Regarding a hint - the original cache did have a hint, but it's usefulness became moot when the local council chopped down the tree it referred to. I shall visit the cache site again in the near future and see if I can come up with another suitable hint for those having trouble.
