Geocache Description:

A confusing conundrum to conquer, before an amble through a quarry garden.

The above co-ordinates are for roadside parking only, NOT the cache location, but you'll go less than 500 metres to get to the cache itself.

The cache has been placed within the Palmers Quarry Garden, a fine example of what can be achieved with a quarry once it has reached the end of its economic life. As this is private land that has been opened to the public, please respect all signs and practice CITO where possible. The cache is a 2 ltr camo-painted snaploc container and has a few film canisters containing a plastic shopping bag for any rubbish that you may spot on the walk.

Safety Information: As this is an old quarry, there are cliff edges and cliff walls to be aware of. You will not need to leave the paths to find this cache.
Please supervise children at all times.

Note: placed with permission.

All the information to find the cache itself is on this page: going to the site before you have solved this riddle will not help.

Read the poem, solve the riddle, hunt the cache - easy!

Now here is a cache
Well hidden away
No poking or prodding
Will find it I say
The watcher, the viewer
The browser of words
Will have enough info
To find the co-ords
A poet I'm not,
Nor wordsmith I claim
O, Shakespeare would spin
If this brought me fame
Inspiration I had:
To this source you must go
And then you will find
The location I know. home page For more information about geocaching in New Zealand,
