Blue Rock Boat Ride
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a cache I have been thinking about placing for a long time. Just need the right container and a fine day to set sail.
The Blue Rock Dam or located on the Tanjil River in West Gippsland. Blue Rock Dam has two main recreational areas open to the public and some less known (older) areas around the Dam. The reservoir's construction began in 1979 and was complete in 1984. It has a capacity of 208,000 megalitres (ML). Following construction of the dam, the safe yield of the Latrobe River system upstream of the Morwell River Junction was increased to 325,000 megalitres per annum.
The embankment of the dam (eastern end) is constructed from earth and rock fill material.
For more info on Blue Rock Dam, visit (visit link)
This cache is located on the northern banks of the Dam around 1.2km from the boat ramp at the recreational area closest to the Willow Grove township.
The easiest way to get this geocache is to do as the name suggests and "take a boatride". This is not to say that you could not approch the cache from the north via fourwheel drive and then via foot along the bank.
The cache is an old ammo tin with the geocaching details sprayed on the outside.
It would be really great to see lots of photos of the cache in action, so any photos you can add to the log, please do.
Enjoy your ride. :)
