This cache has been archived.

Ministro: As there's been either no response from the cache owner, no cache to find or log to sign, or it's been a number of months since the last owner note. I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace/make available the cache sometime in the near future (next 30 days), just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the current guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it. Should you replace the cache after 30 days has passed please create a new cache listing so it can be reviewed as a new cache.

Geocache Description:

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. :)
