Hi there malea263,

This cache has been flagged by Geocaching HQ as a cache that MAY need some attention. You would have received an automated email from Geocaching HQ recently which explained what needs to be done.

Unfortunately, nothing seems to have happened, so I am having to take the next step and temporarily disable the cache - see here: Geocache Health Score. .

Can you please respond to this situation (or indicated your intention) within 14 days, so others know exactly what is happening with this cache?

You have lots of choices so pick the one that applies from this handy list:

  • Check on the cache, repair and/or replace the cache or do whatever else is needed, post an Owner Maintenance log indicating the cache has been checked and ENABLE your cache. Then sit back and wait for the praises.

  • If you really hope to get it fixed but there is some unusual reason why you can't do it soon, then at least post a Write Note log (within 14 days). Be sure to indicate the actual date that you expect to have it fixed so that everyone knows you are on top of it. For ongoing issues (where you don't have an actual date) please ensure you visit the page and post a note every 28 days so as to keep everyone up to speed.

  • If you don't plan on fixing it then you could consider passing it on to another geocacher by asking them to Adopt it or alternatively, you need to Archive it, so it is removed from searches and someone else can have the spot. Don't forget to remove any remnants of your previously enjoyed cache too.

You might wonder what happens if you don't pick one of those. Well, if nothing happens, then a few weeks from today, when I next look at the cache page, it is likely that I will, unfortunately, have to de-list (Archive) it on the basis that it has been abandoned.

Honestly, I'd rather you decide, so please do something before then. Please don't send me an email but instead follow the information/advice posted above.

Collectively, they consist of three football ovals, numerous playgrounds, walking and bicycle trails, picnic and barbecue facilities, skate park, leisure centre, athletics track, gridiron field, tennis courts, public toilets and numerous sports club facilities.

This park has many walking tracks throughout the park, great for family walks, walking the dog, going for a hit of cricket, a kick of the footy, flying the drone or enjoying a picnic at one of the many picnic areas.

To get to this cache, you will be searching for a micro hidden in a camo suitable for it's surrounds, this area is known to flood after heavy rains, so please do not attempt this cache if the area is flooding, gumboots may be needed in the wet season and caution should be taken if it's hot in case of snakes.
