This cache has been archived.

Clever Monkey: HQ has requested I remove all the geotour references from the cache page as the cache is no longer a formal GeoTour cache. This would seem fair to do however it ultimately creates a different cache so in fairness to those that came a completed the cache while it was a tour cache I am archiving it in its current form.

This is a letterbox hybrid, this cache type pays homage to an older form of scavenger hunt and as such has a very special stamp contained within.

You should commence your search for the cache from the listed coordinates which are also a good spot to park. From here head uphill on a bearing of 174.2 degrees for 102 metres to locate the cache.

Additional Information:

Bald Hill Gap is located in the Mansfield Shire and is a small gap in the range where the Eildon-Jamieson Road passes from one side to the other. A sign marked "Bald Hill Gap" marks the location. It is 49 km from Eildon and 11 km from Jamieson on the Eildon-Jamieson Road.

History:

Bald Hill Gap marks the start of the Mt Terrible Track, a 4x4 bush track which leads upwards to the south from the Gap to the summit of Mount Terrible. Mount Terrible is 1,325 m above sea level and is roughly 1,000 m above the historic Kevington Pub located on the Jamieson-Woods Point Road. A steel fire lookout tower is located at the Mount Terrible summit and the area is also utilised for communications by a number of organisations. These include the Ambulance service, Victorian State Emergency Service, Telstra, Department of Primary Industries and Environment as well as being used as a repeater for the Upper Goulburn Repeater Association.
