Geocache Description:

This walk will take you through part of the Lysterfield Lake park. The park originally consisted of a number of farms, one of which was the Lysterfield Boys Farm, established to teach poor city boys how to work on a farm, to help them gain employment. The walk will take you through the area where the Boys Farm was, along the Boys Farm Heritage Trail. GZ is near the site of another farm house.

The farms were closed down when the Lysterfield Lake was created as a water supply for Dandenong, and the area became part of the catchment area. The area has now returned to bushland with some help by man.

There is a map of the area in the document here. There is around 5 - 6 km.s of walking or cycling involved.

Waypoint 1 - S 37° 56.502 E 145° 18.300

Here you are looking for a 200 ml sistema painted black. Inside you will find a key number, aaa. You will need it for the final calculation.

Waypoint 2 - S 37° 56.552 E 145° 18.273

This is the approximate start of the Boys Farm Heritage Trail where it leaves the main track. There are no questions here. There is a sign not too far along the trail which explains a bit about the farm's history.

Note: The trail is quite overgrown, and it might be hard to follow. If so, just head to the next waypoint as best as you can.

Waypoint 3 - S 37° 56.618 E 145° 18.219

Here there is a sign depicting everyday activities carried out at Lysterfield Boys Farm.

b = total number of photos showing the activities.

Waypoint 4 - S 37° 56.655 E 145° 18.160

You should be at a sign at the site of the Dormitory. The size in square feet of the dining/living room was cccc. (Length x Width)

Waypoint 5 - S 37° 56.743 E 145° 18.226

You should now be at the Dairy Site. From the sign, dd = the number of heifers added later.

You can now continue along the trail to the main track, then walk to GZ which is some distance away.

xxx = (2 x aaa) + (b x dd)
yyy = cccc - 649

GZ = S 37° E 145° 17.yyy

The cache is a small 1 litre camouflaged rectangular box, hidden close to the original location.
