A cow pasture at Carwoola, ~40km east of Canberra.



1PE realised that this was another lunch-time excursion, driving about 30km from the workplace.


1PE: This was just off the Captains Flat road at Carwoola in New South Wales, in the lovely Primrose Valley, some 40km by road east out of Canberra. I expected: great grass, lambs and cattle; I got: cattle dung in a field, and some puddles from recent rain. Google showed that site was adjacent to a gate in a farm field on the road, so access would be good. There is another gate and shed opposite as roadside markers. Tracks run from the gate into the field. And... so it was. The tracks led directly to the site that was otherwise unremarkable. I also investigated the marked square just to the north in the images and it appears to have been a fenced yard or shed site at some time, but nothing remains above ground.

I came equipped with an ActiveGeohasher.com poster (what a clever idea they are) in a plastic sleeve, and left it attached to the fence beside the gate. The farmer will hopefully see it some time before the wind shreds it, and have a laugh and a tale to tell.






1PE earned the Land geohash achievement
