Geocache Description:

A tour of the inner north of Canberra

This cache follows the path of Sullivan's Creek and one of its 'tributaries'. You will pass a few hidden treasures and have the opportunity to stop for a drink or snack along the way. I used to walk most of this path from home to work (and back) almost every day. The cache waypoints are all accessible via bike paths – so it is also wheel chair friendly. It's possibly the most used bike path in Canberra.

When you reach the first waypoint, you should find a large ‘washer’ fixed to a wooden object. It will have two five-digit numbers stamped on it. The top number represents the minutes south (x 1000) and the lower number represents the minutes east (x1000) of the next waypoint (degrees stay the same). For example, 17890 on top and 08927 below would mean that the next waypoint is at S35 17.890, E 149 08.927. There are six waypoints, plus the first waypoint listed above, and the total distance of this cache is approximately six kilometres.

Reviewer Edit: WP2 - SUBTRACT 391 from the south minutes, and ADD 56 to the east minutes. Disc with numbers appears to be missing.

The final location is home to the micro cache, which is hidden alongside a very busy thoroughfare. As per usual, try to remain discrete and hide the cache only when you are not being watched.
