[edit] Newcastle Surrounds

Newcastle is a great place to geohash; with Newcastle and Lake Macquarie being right on the border of the Sydney graticule, there is often an alternative geohash location in the Sydney graticule if Newcastle's is inaccessible. In fact, Lake Macquarie is split between the Newcastle and Sydney graticules. Its also only an one and a half hour drive from Sydney to Newcastle, so its a great place to take a break and/or do some geohashing.


[edit] Meetups

Dow Jones opens at 9:30 EDT, which is 11:30pm local time to us in Newcastle. Meetups take place at whatever time specified, so check this page (or the actual meetup page) for details.
