Geocache Description:

A 7.5km Round trip walk, on a large open-pasture area of crown land, with great views of Hobart's southern suburbs and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.

Most caches have somewhat cryptic names. The name of this cache is no exception, - in fact, the name of this cache could be accurately described as a bad joke, - you'll groan when you get it! If you find the cache and you still don't get it, there is a second location, with co-ordinates given in the cache's log book. A name at the secondary location is the hint ;-)

The beauty of this cache is in the walk, especially if you get a still sunny day, - you may not see another soul for the whole walk, and the feeling of space is a rare one in Tasmania, - no problems with reception here! You will very likely see some wedge-tailed eagles, - we saw three the day we placed it. In other words, using a GeoBoat will spoil this one.

Cache is a plastic clip-sided storage box. You may need to rearrange the landscape to find it. At the time of placement it contained a torch, a selection of pens, a luminious lizard, some Winnie-the-Pooh playing cards, a lighter, some rainbow space-specs, a calf-keyring, and some new flavours of Kool-Aid, sent to me by a special friend in the States.

Cache In, Trash Out

After-placement thought: This would be a great place to take a couple of garbage bags; The Western beach faces a large body of water that is very popular with all manner of watercraft-owners, and this beach collects a lot of washed-up rubbish. It would be a much lovelier place without it all. Another thought: could someone take some garbage bags to leave in the cache for other cachers?
