Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

This cache is temporarily unavailable.


Three things can ruin any geocache. This is true no matter what the age of the cache and whether a geocache is a creative hide, a geocache that delivers hikers deep into the untamed wilderness, or fantastical Puzzle Cache with a big surprise twist.

If the geocache is soaked through with water, the container is cracked or geocachers don't know it's a geocache because it's not marked/identified, it's what some people call a #fail.

To avoid the #fail, CO's need to make sure their geocache is D2W compliant. It should be:

  • Durable
  • Water-tight
  • Well-marked

This cache is carrying one or more logs which suggest some attention by the cache owner is needed in this regard. If the cache is not weatherproof for whatever reason, it does not comply with the Guidelines.

The guidelines advise that the CO should make regular visits to check on the cache as well as promptly address any logs that indicate that the cache requires some attention. If you can not attend to the issue promptly, then you need to Disable the cache - I have disabled it this time.

Please respond to this situation (or indicated your intentions including a date) by 18th January, otherwise it will be necessary to withdraw the cache from the Active listing.

And don't forget, once you have addressed the issue, post both an "Owner Maintenance" log, see here; Removing the Needs Maintenance Icon and an "Enable Listing" log, see here; Temporarily Disable and Enable to get your cache up and running again.

Geocache Description:

On a recent hike on the Great Ocean Walk we camped at Blanket Bay and, as usual, it was a fantastic place to visit. I would recommend it even as just a day trip.
What all the guide books fail to mention is the number of koalas here. I’ve seen several every time I’ve been here and if you ever wanted to get a picture of a koala with a gorgeous beach in the background I reckon that you’d have a good chance here.

Blanket bay is a pretty bay facing to the South East, partly protected by reefs. There are toilet, picnic and camping facilities with limited access for camper trailers but no access for caravans.
You can get there by turning off the Great Ocean Road on to the Cape Otway Road. Blanket Bay Road is off to the left about 10 km from the Great Ocean Road (watch for koalas in the trees all of the way along this road). About 1 km along you pass through a gate which may be locked if conditions are very wet. It is about another 5 km to the campsite. Blanket Bay Road is a mix of sand and gravel which ordinary cars can traffic most of the year.
Note: the campsites at Blanket Bay are booked through a ballot system during summer and over the Easter holiday period, and fees apply during this time. Contact Parks Victoria for info.

The cache is a black 400 ml sistema with a few swaps included.
