Geocache Description:

Elevation 1226 m.

Placed on a three and a bit day walk along the lovely mountains in the southern section of the Main Range (part of the Great Dividing Range). We walked from Spicer's Gap down to Teviot Gap, but you don't have to walk that far if you are familiar with other road access points. This cache is night for the faint hearted, unfit or acrophobic.


The cache could possibly be access in a day-walk, depending on where you start from, but why not take your time and enjoy the area.

For bush camping permits, contact the ranger:

Main Range National Park
M.S. 394 Warwick Q 4370
Phone (07)4666 1133

As the cache involves off-track walking, you will need the Mount Superbus topographic map (9341-12) and a compass. If travelling further north to or from Spicer's Gap, you will also need the Cunninghams Gap map (9341-11) and also a rope for pack-hauling in a couple of steep sections.

The original cache I had planned was left behind during my pack weight rationalisation, so this one is a throw together one and hence a bit light on the trade items, but the first finder will find something to help keep warm, especially if staying the night.

I have written the important parts of the geocaching.com info sheet blurb in the log book, but if the first finder could leave to cache information sheet that would be great.

Feel free to contact me if you are thinking of trying for this, and need some advice.

Be prepared, and you will have an enjoyable experience. Also make sure to let someone know where you are going.
