How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Another novo hide, this one is located at the Oberton Street detention basin in Kincumber. The cache is hidden somewhere on the trash rack. No climbing is necessary. It is a fairly straight forward but well concealed hide. There is a pedestrian thoroughfare approx 15m to the east of GZ thus stealth is required due to sporadic muggle activity (D rating a little higher to reflect this).

Storm water basins are located all around suburban areas and are typically built during the construction of land development projects such as urban housing estates to provide both general and extreme flood protection such as a 1 in 100-year storm event.

When replacing, please take care to follow the the two steps noted on the cache. You should find that everything will go back nicely in its proper way, sitting flush (ie nothing sitting proud or misaligned) and all ready again for the next unsuspecting finder. Some folks might find it a tad fiddly so a little patience may be required! Please ensure that you or someone on your geoteam is good with their hands with fiddly stuff BEFORE attempting this find. Thank you!

Please go easy when logging your find on-line so as to not inadvertently (or otherwise!) add any spoilers and please do not post any pics of any part of the actual container. This keeps it fun for the next finders. I do my best to ensure a small stubby pencil is provided but it is always a good idea to BYO writing stick.

Watch out for possible joe blakes in the long grass at GZ.

The novos hope you enjoy your caching experience in this unusual spot!

Congrats to barefootjeff on FTF!

Safety note: This is not a prohibited area but in the extremely rare event where significant storm activity and/ or heavy rainfall is experienced in the area producing flooding, it is recommended you keep away from the basin and thus leave your search for another time. This is a dry pond and not a retention (wet) pond so it will almost always be dry and in the summer months you might want to keep your eyes peeled for wriggly sticks in the long grass as you conduct your search. T rating given reflects mainly the fact that the undergrowth at GZ is so full on.
