Geocache Description:

The Second of a multi series taking Cachers on a Ghost Tour of Hobart

Tasmania is known as the Commonwealths most haunted state, and with the horrendous conditions of Port Arthur, Richmond and Salt River, it’s no surprise. This series, inspired by an incident at Gas Works Engineers, takes cachers on a tour of five well known hauntings in the Hobart area, and asks the question, “do you believe?”. Because of the stories of each area this series comes with an M rating….Horror Themes. Due to the placement and the aim of the series none of these caches can be completed during daylight hours. Caches one through four are micros and contain coordinates for cache five. The coordinates are painted on the inside lid in luminescent paint. To get the clue shine a bright light on the inside lid for about 20-30 seconds, then remove the light source. The numbers are not visible in daylight. To ensure the caches can be found glowing arrows will point the way and I guarantee a ghost at every cache.

Anglesea Barracks

Originally a military hospital, this property, built in 1818 was a treatment centre for hundreds of victims of disease and injury, and housed a primitive operating theatre. The commanding officers residence is said to be the home of an unidentified spirit who produces heavy, clumping footsteps, and a cacophony of weird and frightening noises. There have also been reports of doors mysteriously opening and closing in the nearby guardhouse. The heavy cell doors are unlikely to move in the wind, and considering the hardship and sorrow that would have existed in the cells, it would no be surprising to find a spiritual stain remaining.

This cache is outside the army barracks, but cachers may attract attention so be prepared to walk away.
