Totally Findable Tourist Caches

 

Welcome to Sydney

This series of geocaches is designed primarily with visitors to Sydney in mind who may have limited time and transport options and want a quick and easy find while out enjoying some sightseeing around this beautiful city.

All cache containers will be one of three types; a flat magnetic key case (MKC), a round film canister (FC or MFC for magnetic) or a fake rock (FR).

The hint will indicate the type of container used and will be very specific to help you find the cache easily. If you want a challenge to find this cache and don't wish to know exactly where it's hidden, do not look at the hint.

At each location you’ll be given some information about the site you are visiting.

Enjoy!

Luna Park

Luna Park is a heritage listed amusement park. Opening on the 4th October, 1935, the park is a rare surviving amusement park featuring fantasy architecture in the Art Deco style of the 1930s. The concept is based on the success of the first Luna Park which opened on Coney Island, New York in 1903.

Luna Park was closed in 1979 following a fatal fire in the Ghost Train ride where six children and one adult died.

The park has had a chequered career having closed and re-opened several times due to such things as the Ghost Train fire, a lack of maintenance, Big Dipper noise concerns from local residents and re-development of the site.

Today, Luna Park continues to operate at a wonderful location beside our iconic Sydney Harbour and is popular with locals and visitors alike.
