Sydney Crypt

Now all you have to do is figure out the coordinates for the well dressed couple – the final clue is a virtual visit to Sydney Squaresydney-stroll-large.jpg

Still photos for those who cannot use the Quicktime tour https://feralcaching.files.wordpress.com/2006/12/sydney-stroll-the-square.pdf

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com There is a range allowed. Then post your guess as a comment here – it will be held in the moderation queue and not visible to anyone else but me – or email me through my profile on geocaching.com (GPS format please – coordinate converter )

Getting the coordinates was a little tricky 😉 I took mine with a Geko at 8m accuracy on a rainy night Christmas 2006 when a large tree occupied the spot.

In case you are wondering why this is the chosen site the memorial to Sydney’s “Mr Eternity” Arthur Stace is located near the wall of water fountain – try to find it and post a photo.

  4. Here’s my “guess”!

    [edit]

    And I got the following message:
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    Success!

    Whoohoo! Yipee! uh-huh, uh-huh! w00t! Yeah, baby!

    Your solution was not exact, but it was within about 100 feet from the exact coordinates (this is probably NOT the actual distance, however).

    Now, go get it!
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    I really hope this moderation thing works, and the coords don’t get posted!

    Thanks so much for this fun adventure!!!!

    Nice puzzle, good effort.
    Thanks.

  8. Argh! I give up. I have positively identified the location as [edit] or somewhere about there, in google earth, I can see the building with the stepped walls, and the trees, and the town hall.
    I have tried a little to the north, the south, but obviously not the exact spot!
