Geocache Description:

The exact co-ordianates bring you to the corner of James and Clarke St in Eaglehawk. It might look like any normal intersection but it reveals a hidden treasure, unbeknown to a lot of residents. Harvey Town Once stood a 3000 strong community during the peak of the gold rush, in fact just 4 of the original Harvey Town homes are left. Take a moment to soak in the surroundings and take a walk around Harvey Town but please be respectful of the locals homes and gardens
