Geocache Description:

Seek the cache using the clues as the coords are for the track start opposite side of the road to the toilets - the only place I could get a reliable reading. Beautiful riverside picnic and camping area. 30 min return walk through myrtle forest in the Hellyer Gorge. GPS reception extremely poor.Map

Myrtle the Apprentice has perfected her vanishing spell so there is no letterbox stamp. She left behind a magic box containing: magic orb of destiny keyring, Narnia pen, garden gnome, bag of jewels and who knows whatelse

Originally I placed this cache further in the forest after unsuccessfully seeking the Wizard's Walk

It was scrobbled and has been resited. The GPS coordinates will bring you to the start of the Myrtle walk, take a left turn at bridge and head downstream. NO BUSH BASHING NEEDED.
Cache is on the left of the track after about 35 m behind a tall, distinctive twin trunked Myrtle tree only about 0.5 m from the trail, directly beside a small right hand bend in the track. One of the trunks is 3.5m high and dead. Opposite is a fantastically moss decorated spiral stump about 2.5 high It is between the large roots - you do not have to dig for it! It is weighted down with stone and hidden under a very large bit of moss covered bark.
Tread lightly and look for small sharp white rocks beside the trail on the left. I left them in a rough line pointing to the tree.

Track notes:
Trout fisher muggles spotted here. I went for a swim when placing cache in Jan. The river was slow and low. The canopy is much more open than when I placed it at the start of the year and may have contributed to the loss of the cache. There are lovely views of the river now and very easy access to the clear freezingly cold water.

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

Don't search too hard - GPS was 9m out when I went back in to check coordinates
