Thanks

I know there are a few near my favourite place (I havent been there since i started geocaching, so even though i know the area like the back of my hand, i havent actually got any of the caches yet).

The final location of this one, GCT7XP is near a Lighthouse
And I guess you could say this one, GC2KFRD is near a Lighthouse

http://geocaching.com.au/tags/search/au/
Enter lighthouse and click Search Tags.
It should return quite a few.

Or go directly to the tag family for lighthouse.

You can also check out the locationless cache for lighthouses.

Have been tempted to do this one at Palm Beach, Sydney.
Stewart’s Lights

Old maps indicate the top of the lighthouse is actually a trig station too while we're on the subject. There was also a trig at ground level just north as I recall from the map.

Hey peeps, if you happen to be finding caches that are lighthouses that aren't on the list of caches tagged with lighthouse, it would be most wonderful if you could add that tag.

The latest example.
Head to the cache page.
http://geocaching.com.au/cache/GC1P8W6
Right hand navigation bar under Actions, click on tag.
In the public tag box, enter lighthouse
Click the save tags button.
Tada. Another cache tagged with lighthouse.

The community can any tag to any cache and the more tags, the easier they become to find.

That one is near the coast, The one at Goulburn is inland and is not even near inland water.
