Re: Report GCA Site issues here

Zone 380 is incorrect as it covers areas that should not be covered by GCA zoning eg. many rural properties, campgrounds, resorts etc as can be seen on the Carnavon National Park Management Plan Zone 1073 is detailed and the more accurate boundaries for the National Park zoning.....though still too ...

Re: Does this seem strange to anybody else?

I assume the 4 DNF's relate to the Koi one? If that is the case, then the timing of the log shows it being before the DNF's. As someone who lives in a tourist area and meets quite a few travellers, it is not uncommon for many of them to find caches in out of the way areas. Just because it is not the...

Re: Beat speeding fines with GPS
