Geocache Description:

Koala bear lost in swamp.

Just on New Year’s eve a small Koala Bear went missing. Start looking for it at 56°58.702 N, 23°55.000E. This spot is right on the bank of river Lielupe. Turn your back to the river and you should see a sign prohibiting anchorage here. Pass between two poles which hold the sign, crawl up on river bank and you should be able to maintain your direction for 1.08 kilometers where the road makes sharp turn to the left. On this spot you should see some concrete piles. Note how many of them stick out vertically from the ground on your left side (n).
Continue along the road and after little bit more than 1 kilometer you should arrive at 56°58.630N, 23°56.387E standing on the edge of field used for draining turf from nearby swamp. You should be standing at concrete pillar once used for illumination and able to see some more. Koala bear will be waiting you in a glass jar on pillar (n) counting from the one you are currently standing). As koalas feel defenseless on ground, you should be ready to do some climbing.

Although there are swamps around, the whole route is along the dirt-road passable by car.

Good Luck!
