Geocache Description:


Nearest parking spot at the bottom of Ridge Lane elevation 245 - its a stiff climb of about 1.3km to the gate at elevation 433m.
From there its about 1.5 km easy walking mostly on an old farm track to the cache at 400m.
This site is interesting to visit for the magnificent ancient red stringybark trees - Eucalpytus macrorhyncha - old specimens are hard to find these days because these trees had a myriad of uses from fence posts to mine stoping, shingle roofs to firewood. 

 The cache is a 500ml screwtop container.    GZ is towards the southern most part of a large section of the 405 ha Baranduda Parkland. The land managers Baranduda Landcare and Parklands Albury Wodonga are working  to restore this high conservation value remnant grassy forest.

 
The Big Stringybark

The photo above is one of these ancient giant stringybarks but not the tree at GZ which is nearby and another beautiful specimen.

No matter which way you came or how easy or hard it was to get here, the views and the ambience should make the effort worthwhile.
