Nice to grab a cache in one of my favourite ever places. GPS led me past it at first and was very determined about where it should be. Was about to pull the plug due to the amount of time it seemed to be taking but spotted it at the last moment, 5-10 metres from my GPS' GZ. Cache seems to have morphed from a 30cm clear container to a white one, half the size. TNLN. Many thanks for the cache.
This cache was a bit of a sprint as I was only allowed the time it took the rest of the family to do the creek walk to complete the climb & return
I did spend a few minutes enjoying the views though!
Oh man! Looked, looked and looked and was nearing giving up just like another geocacher. And out of nowhere she appears! No ribbon anymore. Whoever left her dread there was SOOOO cool. We left a parchuting guy (I hope someone films a jump of his off a ledge) and took a die. There a clearly safer ways to get to this than how I did it!
Enjoy some time at the Garden of Eden watering hole.
It took me ages to find the cache. I had gone straight passed it and was starting to make wider and wider circles at the top. Didn't want to start going back down, in case that was the wrong direction.
Eventually found and logged. Glad no one else was around this area watching.
Got a bit further around the top and there were these young fellows photographing each other standing on the rock platform jutting out over the canyon. Yikes.
Couldn't find it, though I must have climbed RIGHT past it! I think my coords were out or something
I had to wait for ages to even search, as a ranger was taking her time going through the area collecting rubbish. That and there were about a bajillion muggles! Oh well. The rim walk was excellent!
Rated: for Overall Experience
Nice cache location on a beautiful hike. Getting the cache was a bit difficult due to all these groups of muggles, however, we made it. Temperatures were moderate today between 25 and 30 degrees, so we had too much water with us.
Thanks and greetings from Dresden, Germany,
I'm ever so glad I set out early to find this cache. The temperature was 27 degrees at first light, and by the time I got back to the car park 3 hours later had hit 37, before reaching a high for the day of 44... scary stuff when steep climbs are involved...
And then I almost missed the cache, as I was thinking it was at a lower altitude... happend to look at my GPSr whilst admiring the view and discovered that I'd walked past the cache about 150 m ago.
Made the back track and found after a short hunt (so many hiding places
We left early to avoid the heat and tourists. Looked a bit and the decided to atke a picture of the cache guardian where upon I spotted the cache. A good hide. On the way down we picked up two Swiss tourists who were a bit lost, Claire prattled on to them in schwytzer-duetsch.
Didn't really plan on getting to this one, even though we were in Kings Canyon. We weren't sure if my 9 year old could stand the rim walk. Fortunately, I had the sheet with me when we decided to push forward. It was a very warm morning by the end of the tour, but the sights along the way were worth it, and most of all, launchkid proved to herself that she could really do it. Took nothing, left a shuttle. Great location, too bad not many summer visits, but then again, it is the outback. TFTC. P.S. Someone did replace the logbook - no replacement needed.
Well I suppose it will teach me to go through all the logs prior to going out on a hunt. We were at the wrong co-ords and even though we spread the search we were unable to locate the cache. It was only when I came home and went to log the DNF and I read the previous logs that I aaagh found our error. However regardless or not of the find the Area is absolutely fantastic, the scenery is breathtaking - not to mention the first part of the walk- The cache would have been a bonus but it doesn't really matter that much the visit was well worth it. However I do agree that if cache location has been changed co-ords should be updated to reflect the change.
Couldn't find this one. Obviously a looked at the original location. Why haven't the coordinates been changed??? [:(!]
I mean I hardly ever read all old logs before I go caching. Maybe I'll be back in a couple of years, maybe not. Nice place anyway.
After previous posts held concerns over finding this, but it was an easy find right where it was supposed to be, and quite findable even with muggles. The photo was a major help. TNLN as I was walking with friends but big thanks to those who placed and replaced this cache - it is in a lovely place well worth visiting, and well worth a cache.
Running short of time, we had earlier decided to skip the longer walk, but the Garmin dictated otherwise. Unfortuntaly we werent able to find either of the caches - the continual busloads of muggles made searching off the track virtually impossible.
Nonetheless, well worth the visit, as we then carried on around on what turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip.
Many thanks - and maybe we'll try later during the day if we are ever up this way again.
Nice walk. Bit cold this time of the morning.
Please change the co-ords to the new cache location as I wouldn't have found it without going through the logs.
Left: New Logbook, pen, finger monster, whistle, water pistol, and a thong keyring.
Cache number 40 on Geo Busters "Great Red Centre Trek".
A tough but very rewarding walk to find the cache. If you have the time and stamina I would highly recommend doing the entire rim walk, the views are some of the most spectacular around.
After a bit of a search we are pretty sure that the original cache is indeed MIA. We then went after the replacement but we had a bit of a wait while some muggles enjoyed the views. When we got a chance the find was quite simple, however the next group of muggles was approaching so there was no time for swaps, barely enough time to sign the log.
[This is truely an amazing place to visit. Just in case the original is still there, here is where it was in august:] In the linked picture, to the right of and slightly behind the base of this tree there is big flat rock. It was about 6 to 12 inches into the opening that is barely visible in the picture Maybe it washed farther underneath.
From the first original cache location, spot another ghost overlooking the first.

A white screw top container only containing a log book and pen and google earth map of Kings Canyon. I had no goodies to load the cache up sorry, so if the next visitors could be so kind to add to this cache it would be great!
I also couldn't find this cache but I did find the old beer can and the pink tape on the tree, so I am sure I was in the correct place. I had a good old dig around under a couple of flat rocks at the base of the tree but only found dirt and leaves. I believe heavy rain may have washed the cache away
Please as next visitors have another really good search at this location too.
BUT GOOD NEWS
I came prepared to replace the cache with a new one
see my next post

There is one way to discribe this cache AWESOME. This is another example of what caching is all about. Anyone can hide a cache in the middle of a park but it is these type of caches you will never forget.
Having heeded all advice we started nice and early on this cache since it was to be 39 deg today. We arrived at GZ and while taking a water break we retreved the cache. The cache was duly signed and returned to its resting place with no muggle around.
We continued to finish the ridge walk and the garden of eden but by the finish in about 2 and a 1/4 hours we were very hot and tired, so back to the resort for a swim.
Many thanks for the cache,
Regards Mr.Coffee and the Kids, KIDS get away from that edge NOW!!! Clan.
Found this cache on the 28th of May. Just like King's Ransom, this one took awhile to log. The canyon is gorgeous (no pun intended). The walk up, the rim, the garden... it was all outstanding. If you are anywhere near here, make it a priority to come see this place, the memories will last awhile. Oh, the cache was excellent as well. Monki & Mrs. Rinch
11/15 founds by an austrian geocaching team while on holiday.
We visited Kings Canyon with a guided tour and were worried if it is possible to find the cache while walking in the group, but it was no problem. [^]
The location of the cache itself was found quickly, but it was hard to get it out, because we where worried about snakes, although we never saw on. The logbook is realy full, so we wrote only our team names and the date of the find.
The cache location is realy a beautiful one. We liked it very much and where very sad that we had so less time, and so much to see.....
Thanks for the cache.

Found at 4.00pm after a bit of a search as we were being directed about 10 metres in another direction. This place is truley a kings paradise, with fantastic views once you walk that first steep bit. Took: Note book Left: key chain. Thanks cache_angel and show_me_the_cache.
Well, what can we say, one of the BEST traditional caches we have ever done.
Kings Canyon simply has to be seen to be believed, the "Lost City" around the top rim of the canyon is a magnificent geological formation that you can spend all day exploring, we spent most of the day!
The walk up into the canyon is nothing compared to the rim walk.
We did this one on our Honeymoon!
Easy find and cache is in good nick.
Flying Solo I took a little walk up to Kings Ransome! It was definately a great view and one of the most interesting places for a cache. Thanks for the Cache, Took Patrol, Left Star Rock. Cache is in good condition.
Thanks for this great cache during our walk with magnificent views of the Canyon. Althoug it was a bit hot (41 degrees celsius in the shade during the climb, 44 degrees when we finished the walk), very hot for two tourist from the Netherlands. But great cache anyhow
A wonderful walk in such an amazing region. we had to be ceareful about a lot of muggels. Thank's for this cache with that beautiful view. It was our third chache in australia. cheers from switzerland
in : swiss german rock cd
out: live strong bracelet (lance armstrong)
A pleasant walk around the canyon, liberated a Yellow Jeep TB. Robbie and Wiskers visited. Absolutely amazed that this cache hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t been swept away in heavy rain, but it hasnÃ¢Â€Â™t so that must make it a good placement.
What a cool hike! Loved the climb...got my heart pumping. But it didn't take me 3-4 hours to complete the 6K loop like they said...ok, my mom was waiting down below so I hurried and still ended up taking 24 pictures.
Some other guides have found the cache, they even added things to it and the log. Interesting. Wonder if he'll keep checking on it each time he comes up there?
Dropped off some TBs for a quick visit.
Also dropped of a JEEP TB. These are a big hit in the US right now (there's some sort of contest with them). But I figured the JEEP needed to go to the outback! Maybe someone will take him back to the US before the contest is over.
Also dropped off a LIVESTRONG bracelet which you might be seeing on TV if you watch sports or if you saw the Tour de France, lots of riders had them on. If you go grab this bracelet, either give it to a bike rider or a cancer survivor/fighter, please.
Read the cache information carefully when you start.
The cache was 250 metres away when we realised we were on the wrong route (hence the log as a note, not a sad face!!!). So close, yet so far!!!! The walk was not recommended in 42 deg heat!
I had trouble trying to change the date and actually found the cache on 22/Dec/02. (It takes time to get back to the PC when your on the road.) The shady gum tree came in handy in the heat whilst we enjoyed the playing the Marx Bros.
This proved to be the most fun we have ever had geocaching. The challenge was not to let all the tourists (who were wandering by just 20 metres away)know what we were up to. The face masks however made us all laugh loud and certainly we drew quite a few looks from passerbys however they just thought we were quite mad. A great spot for lunch we said at 11 o'clock to explain why we stopped under a gum tree with no view of the canyon in sight . The tourists all went by without any idea of what we were up to and we carefully replaced the cache when there was a break in the crowds so they were all none the wiser. Thanks cache angel.
