General Information

Some general info before heading for Anglesea.

You will all be starting to make your way towards Anglesea in the next day or so.

  • Everyone that purchased geocoins or pathtags for pickup, firstly, don’t forget to pick up your order, secondly, please bring either your PayPal payment slip or your drivers license/ID.
  • If you are a Basic member and would like to try out a Premium membership, find Bunjil after 12pm on Saturday and the first 10 to do so will score a one month premium membership.
  • We have a limited amount of GPSR’s available to borrow for use in the Victorian Geocaching Tournament. Please ask if you would like to borrow one.
  • Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen, raincoat, jumpers and insect repellent and of course a smile.

When you arrive in Anglesea, if you are staying on the onsite, you can park onsite as directed by the car parking Volunteers, if not, street parking is just a short walk from GZ.

Once onsite, first thing you need to do is head to registration and sign the log book and if you are in the first 500 will attends, collect your registration pack. You can then head to the stall to collect your pre ordered shirts or buy a non-customised one.

Geocoins and Pathtags can be collected any time on Saturday or Sunday from the registration desk, if you have not pre-ordered, we still have a limited quantity of Standard and Limited coins for sale as well as some pathtag.

If you are a new cacher or would like some more information on what a Mega is all about, head over to the main room at 9am and we have a session and some posters to help you feel at home and to see what a mega is all about.
