Geocache Description:


This virtual cache will take you on a walk up to the Trig point at GZ on a well used path with a gentle gradient and is easy to follow and you will be rewarded with some amazing views up and down the coast and over the hinterland.

Best to avoid school drop off and pick up times.

You will need to access the trail off Havana Road East where you will find an information board at the start of the trail which gives you some facts about Emu Mountain (Noosa National Park)

A trig point (also known as a Trigonometric Station) typically consists of a black disc on top of four metal legs or concrete pillar and are generally located at the top of hills or points of prominence in the landscape. Many provide unique views and challenges, with some being difficult to get to - but not this one. These points were regarded as valuable to surveyors, providing reference points for measuring distance and direction, and assisting in the creation of maps.

To be eligible to claim this cache as found, you will need to email or message us with the answers to the 4 questions below. You do not need to wait for a confirmation email or message to log your find.

Any logged "finds" without the answers sent to us will be deleted!

If your answers are wrong we will email or message you.

A posted photo of yourself, GPS or both at the “Trig Point” along with your online log would be appreciated.

You will need to visit three different coordinates to answer the questions.
