In the wall between a supermarket and a car park in central Yarraville.
I noticed this geohash the day before and knew I had to go for it. Strangely, I was at the geohash location that day, attending the Yarraville Festival, and almost occupied the exact same spot.
This morning, I woke up a bit earlier than usual, jumped on my bike and headed west, away from work. I reprised yesterday's route to Yarraville, and it wasn't long before I was standing outside the supermarket where the hash was located. Unfortunately, the supermarket was closed and I'd have to wait for 20 minutes before I could get in, so I looked around for a cafe.
But, having a closer look, I saw that the hash was actually virtually inside the wall between the supermarket and an open carpark next door. So I just took it from the other side.
After uploading the photos, I decided to ride back a different way. I headed towards the public punt across the Yarra, underneath the Westgate bridge. Luckily the timing was good, because the punt was arriving at my side of the river just as I got there. I crossed the river and rode to work through Port Melbourne and St Kilda along the beach bike path.
Here is the route of my trip.

Lachie was alerted to this geohash by Felix in the morning and determined to reach the point that afternoon on his way home from work, also in Yarraville. Since the supermarket of the hash was open at this time, he managed to get the hash from the other direction. It turned out to be inside the shelf of butter against the wall.
It was also an opportunity for him to try out his new geohashing app he's developing. The trial was a success.
Since the deviation from Lachie's commute was minimal, this qualified as a very easy geohash.
