Wow! Thank you for letting me know, really appreciated. I've created it as GA8368.

For the last year I've received notifications from people who logged them and all the feedback is largely positive. You guys have been so tolerant and supportive with sending corrections for the fact that not all plaques are at the precise coordinates (or even remotely close in a couple of cases) entered. A big thank you for this.

Thanks Edwin, it will be a popular cache. I am publishing a history cache as well so finders will get 2 smiley faces! We really enjoy hunting them out when we are travelling here or on the mainland. Janet

I got all excited on the weekend thinking I'd found one not listed, but turned out to be an old regular plaque (however it SHOULD be an Engineers Australia one as it was to commemorate an engineering feat).

Drats!
