Partic: Unfortunatly, I'm not In this part of town often anymore, so am archiving this cache to free the location up for anyone wanting to put out a replacement (as I've done now with a number of other caches in the area)

Thanks to all who did the cache during the past 5 years.

Geocache Description:

X Marks the Memory

Margins, Memories and Markers are a series of artworks and markers located all over the City Of Port Philip. This cache takes you to 2 of the 28 Memory Markers and one of the 6 artworks.

The cache is a renovated version of GCMMA6, which met demise due to renovations at GZ which are now complete.


This Multi-Cache takes cachers to three of the 28 "X Marks the Memory" markers scattered around the City of Port Phillip.

For each marker, you will need to record a word that answers the following questions. From there, decode the clue to get the final coordinates.
