Travel Bug misplaced in New Zealand


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I've given a friend of mine a new travel bug. She took it to New Zealand as I told her. But she didn't know that it should be placed in a geocache so she just hid in under a rock somewhere.

She gave me these coordinates. Can someone please try to find it? :)

 

Latitude : -43.52406 (43° 31′ 26.61″ S)

Longitude : 172.5764 (172° 34′ 35.03″ E)

Made a brief search for the TB in Ilum Gardens this morning. Found a few rocks situated off a path, adjacent to a footbridge over a concreted watercourse at S43° 31.443 E172° 34.584, WGS84. (Note: there are many paths and footbridges in Ilum Gardens.) But those rocks have all been covered with flood debris from the overflowing watercourse. Without a better description of where the TB was placed, left bank/right bank (looking downstream) etc, or the size of rock (50cm/1 metre, or just a small stone, could the rock be easily lifted by a small person?). Was the rock on high ground away from any stream, could the rock be reached whilst standing on a path or was it near a tree (large/small, evergreen/deciduous etc)? Without those extra details I'm afraid hunting for this TB will be a hopeless task.
