It looks like your log contains HTML or UBB formatting. We now use Markdown formatting because it works on both web and mobile. Would you like to convert your log?

Success! To keep these changes, hit “Submit Log Entry” at the bottom of the page.

Hmm. Some of your log formatting is not supported. You might want to remove it and use Markdown formatting.

On the way back from Cotter, I wanted to get some coffee and cake. I remembered that on the way I had seen a sign announcing a cafe on Mt. Stromlo. So at the first possible point I took a left and went up the hill (always chosing the steepest climb). On top I had a nice piece of blackberry-coconut cake with a cappuccino - and I refilled my water bottles.

After finishing the cake I took a look at my GPS and, voila, a cache not too far away. So, off I went and found it easily.

The ruins still standing around show impressively the power of the firestorm in 2003.

Thanks - fogg

P.S.: I almost forgot. When approaching the summit, I was attacked by a vicious magpie. So be careful when coming up Mt Stromlo on a bike!

The observatorium - still damaged

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
