Geocache Description:

Orakei Basin is a Popular place for Waterskiiers... Nice and easy if you take the time to get off the road. This spot is tucked out of way.

I have been living within 2 kilometers from this spot for 15 years and never visited it. I knew it would be perfect for a cache... So stashed one here.
It is a popular place for muggles walking muggle dogs... so stealth is often necessary.
If you are into Waterskiing you are likely to be familiar with this place as it is often used for practice and competition.

The basin is not tidal and they let the water out occasionally to "refresh" it.
Easy parking close by and easy walk to GZ.

The original cache was lost when they cut out the bamboo grove in which it was hidden so I have replaced nearby with a 1L Systema container in a TechnoKitten Camo bag.. With assortment of usual trade items. Plus Log book - Pen -

Please replace the cache "undercover" as you found it.
This is a TB rest stop... If you have a TB and want it to move on I will guarantee a quick pickup and will move it on closer to its mission goal.

Please follow the:
