Geocache Name:

Gnomesville (GCHTN7)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

1/1

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

While out geocaching, you can meet some pretty interesting folks. Sometimes it’s another geocacher who joins the hunt. Other times it’s a curious muggle who discovers their new favorite hobby. And then there are the times when you meet a horde of gnomes in Australia. What? That hasn’t happened to you? Well head out to find this geocache and it will. Aside from making new friends, one of the best parts of geocaching is that it takes us to incredible (and sometimes strange) locations throughout the world. Gnomesville is a perfect example of an interesting location filled with interesting (albeit small) people.

# of Finds:

What geocachers are saying:

“Heard about this place earlier in the year then noticed some caches here too so couldn’t resist coming to take a look. Kids loved wandering around look at all the gnomes. Had no idea there would be sooo many!!” – SpatialRiq

“Heading down south with my husband who told me about gnomesville. So we made a detour to come and see this amazing place. We parked the car almost right beside the cache. I was so excited. I got to the cute little cache,signed the log book. Took lots of photos then added my little hiker gnome to the geocaching colony. TFTC it was a highlight of my day.” – Ladyjet86

“Great day out gnoming around. What a collection. The geokids dropped some angry little men off to join the clan. Great place!” – polony_5
