Geocache Description:

Gads Falls ( - a tool for prodding cattle). A small but effective set of falls - good for photography. Rainforest type walk.

I think it has all been said about the falls above.

As is usual with Tassy falls (and probably all of them anywhere) reception is really ordinary.

The walk takes about 20min return. Some of the walk is loose shale and its an easy to see track, but not "formed".

There is some off the road parking about 20m up the road from the trail start. I have included the parking point. If you drive in, there is a large area.

I don't think I would do this with children under 5 - but your call. The loose rocks would be the trick.

The cache is about halfway up the walk, which you have to cross the creek at one point, but its a small step, not a take your shoes off job. Keep going till you find the falls - the trail pretty much stops when you find them. I couldn't hide the cache there - I thought it would get washed away anywhere I could find to hide it.

So, half way up the walk, there is evidence of a large rock slip, and then straight after there is evidence of a small rock slip. You are looking for a three trunk tree between the two on the uphill side, right next to the track. Standard robtas container (I nicked it from the garage !!).

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
