The suburb was named in honour of Edward Wollstonecraft. He left England with his sister to seek his fortune and escape the notoriety of his feminist aunt. He was the first settler to be given a land grant in the area in 1821. Much of the original estate is still bushland reserves along the harbour foreshore.

About Wollstonecraft Station

The station opened on the 1st May, 1893 when the first stage of the North Shore Railway line opened from St Leonards to Milsons Point. The station was originally named Edwards Road which is interesting as there has never been a street of that name in the suburb. The name was changed to Wollstonecraft on the 1st September, 1900. The original station buildings were replaced in the 1980’s and an upgrade last year added lifts but the dangerous curve of the platform still remains. It is the 108th most frequently used station in the Sydney network.



This two-stage multi geocache is part of the SideTracked series that is popular in the United Kingdom and throughout the world. It is designed to be a relatively quick cache find around railway stations for travellers but of course anyone else can find it too!

**Please Note**

At all times, for safety, you must remain behind the YELLOW LINE on the platform while searching for the information you need. According to Transport NSW regulations, anyone entering a railway platform must have tapped on with their Opal Card, even if there is no barrier and they don't intend to board a train. After gathering the information for this cache, they can then tap off. That will reverse the transaction. Apparently, transport inspectors can and occasionally do check the Opal Cards of people on railway platforms.

To find this cache look around the platforms and vicinity of the station and find the following …

Platform 1

A = the number of bubblers

B = the number of seats on the platform (not in the waiting room)

Platform 2

C = number of Opal card readers at the main entrance to the platform

D = number of light poles with 2 or more light fittings at the top

The tunnel under the rail corridor

From either platform walk down the hill. The tunnel gives access to both platforms.

E = the number of lights in the tunnel

F = the final digit of the number carved into the small stone pillar, it will be on your left when you face the tunnel, but which end ???
