A geocache hidden near the Still Creek bridge in the Big River district.
Still Creek is located in the Shire of Murrindindi at a large culvert style bridge located five metres above where the Still Creek and Whites Creek meet. The site is photographic all year 'round thanks to the meeting of the waters. It is 30 km from Eildon and 31 km from Jamieson on the Eildon-Jamieson Road.
Still Creek is a tributary of the Taponga River which in turn flows into the Big River and then into Lake Eildon at the Big River Arm. Prior to the dam’s construction, it flowed directly into the Goulburn River at the historic township of Darlingford which was submerged 1927 by the rising waters of the first built Sugarloaf Dam.
