Anglesea Beachfront Family Caravan Park

We have been able to secure a special deal with the Anglesea Beachfront Family Caravan Park!
They are offering all geocachers who use the code word “Geocache” when making their booking the following.

  • 10% discount,
  • Free Late checkout until 11am in Cabins (can stay in the park) or 6pm checkout for sites,
  • Free spa token,
  • 2 free coffees or 2 slushies.

This is for all bookings between the 1st June and the 17th November 2016 but does exclude the Melbourne Cup weekend and the Victorian School holidays.
This is great news!! Not only is this a great deal, but it means that you can head down to Anglesea before the Surf Coast Event, find all the caches, and leave the weekend of the event free for socialising!!
