This is 10 year old geogirl’s first hide. The theme and placement are all her idea.
The above coordinates will take you near some conveniences in a small country town. Nearby is an unusual object where you willgather some information to then take you to the cache.
A = the number of power poles pictured
B = the number of battleships pictured
C = the number of red shoes
D = the number of birds on a wire
E = the number of purely red ruby tiles
F = the number of children pictured
Back in the vehicle and off for a short drive to the famous landmark. The local website has the following description:
"On the eastern edge of the township is a remarkably exact triangle of granite stone which explorer Major Thomas Mitchell surmounted in 1836. He named it for its similarity to 'the monuments of Egypt.' A cairn on the southern slopes commemorates his discovery. From the top of the hill, which rises 100m, there is a wonderful view of the township and surrounding irrigated farmlands. In spring many varieties of rare wildflowers may be found blooming among the rocks. There is a picnic area and shelter with barbecue and toilet facilities and a Braille trail from the parking area to "the saddle" gives the elderly and visually impaired a chance to enjoy the area. A picturesque 18 hole sand-scrape golf course surrounds the hill, catering for members and visitors between April and September."
We are not convinced that the blind or the elderly should attempt the path and it can be quite treacherous coming down.
Geogirl insisted the hide be near the top. It is a long way from the walking track and access requires clambering. The area can be treacherous if moist and snake gully if hot.
The cache is a painted 1L sytema and is located at: S36° 03.ABC E144° 08.DEF
