Our 2nd DNF for Australia Day was #18 The Thin Black Line (GC1C47), a medium sized cache by Hounddog.
Located in a bush reserve adjacent to a coal conveyer belt that feeds the nearby Lake Munmorah power station, we spent about 30 minutes (possibly longer?) here trudging around in the dense undergrowth seeking out this cache.
Mysteriously, we did find a perfectly rectangular “indentation” in the growth that indicated a place where a geocache could have been resting very recently – but if so, it’s no longer there.
We’re keeping a watch on this cache, and might come back again here soon one day for another go.
Paper Magic (GC10DFM) is a small geocache by the bower birds, located in a scenic location on the shores of Lake Munmorah.
It’s near a van park / mobile home village / prefab home village – and being Australia Day, there was an abundance of muggles about enjoying their day off and celebrating. We surveyed the location a little and discovered a small footbridge leading us across to the correct side of a small creek, but only to be put-off by a “NO ACCESS” sign, and fencing – apparently the bushland here is regenerating.
We’ll come back another day soon to have another go at this – it looks like it could be a lovely secret location.
Pentonville Road (GCZN0C) by cphoenix is another of the famous Monopoly series of geocaches on the Central Coast. This being a medium size cache, located in parkland in the suburb of San Remo.
It’s a nice walk along the water’s edge and then across a large open sports field to get to this cache, alternatively there is a shortcut if you park in the obvious place – but I do recommend the longer, more scenic route.
Wolfie owes more Monopoly Rent
With the aid of the hint, we quickly spotted the cache and carried out the TeamWolfie caching rituals.
Thanks for another Monopoly hide – we’re really enjoying these.
