In memory of dear departed Ansett, and my lost points.
Your journey starts at the coordinates above where you will find the first in a series of virtual locations, which will lead to a regular cache hidden away in an interesting part of the world.
Our journey is around this island continent visiting the major airport of each mainland capital city. You ask why we miss Canberra and the southern isle? I have not visited those locations in the past two years.
Which way will you go? You may visit the virtual locations in any order. My preferred option is anticlockwise. Apparently it is possible to do this entire cache in one day. With the recent completion of the Adelaide – Darwin rail link it is possible to complete this cache by train. Automobiles are also an option. Anyway it is your choice.
The minimum cache travel distance is around 9750km. Hence the five terrain stars. The cost of the round trip is going to burn a big hole in your frequent flier points. Hence the five difficulty stars.
And to the details. At each virtual location collect a number, or numbers, to complete the co-ordinates of the local final location. S34 5A.EHB, E138 3C.FDG
