Drive from Melbourne to Adelaide and back.

Post by garnercx » 19 January 11 8:45 pm

Hey guys.

I'm heading to Adelaide in a week or so and for the first time in YEARS I'm driving. This means I can get "The Fugitive" (GC51AA) off my radar, and the two Great Aussie Icon Hunts for Adelaide to Melbourne (GC2ACD8 and GC1KHVG).

Anyone know of any other caches that can be found on an Adelaide/Melbourne drive, either via the Western Hwy (via Ballarat) or the Hamilton Hwy (via Hamilton), or any good caches on that route that are worth grabbing, or even diverting for?

Oh yeah, I have done that already, but I was specifically asking if there are any that would be recommended, and are there any that aren't on the route (i.e won't turn up in a route pocket query like The Fugitive), but have to be solved on the route?

"A River Somewhere" GC53F9 is the reverse equivalent of "The Fugitive".
