Hi again, It has taken a little longer than expected, but the Whittlesea Event refunds for Coins, Pathtags, Shirts and camping have now been completed.
Anyone that has ordered anything else (Charity coins, past event coins or pathtags, bandannas or stubby holders), these have now been set for “Pickup at The Wangaratta Event”
If you want your order earlier, please contact Adriaan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can arrange either postage (A small fee involved) or pickup at a geocaching event once these are allowed in Victoria again.
If you have not received a refund but believe you should have, please email Bernie (email@example.com) and we’ll look into it.
Hi All, just a quick note to let you all know that The Whittlesea Event refunds due to the cancellation of this years event have begun. Anyone that ordered Whittlesea event Geocoins, Pathtags, Camping or Shirts will be receiving a refund for these items. These refunds should be complete by the end of this week, but we need to work with Paypal for orders older than 120 days so it is taking a bit longer than expected.
If you did order items not related to The Whittlesea Event, these have been set for pickup at The Wangaratta Event next year. Alternatively you can have them posted for an additional fee, contact Adriaan for details or questions firstname.lastname@example.org
If by the end of this week you have not recieved a refund but believe you should have, please email our treasurer with your order number and details at email@example.com
We will post another announcement once we believe all refunds have been completed.
After much discussion between Geocaching Victoria and the Whittlesea Organising Committee it is with some disappointment, but with the safety of the geocaching community in mind, and the current stage of disaster in Victoria, that we have decided to postpone the 2020 Mega Event. The Whittlesea Event will still occur at a date to be determined.
Unfortunately the committee does not believe this pandemic will be “over” or anywhere near normality for a gathering as big as ours.
I know there are many of you that will be very disappointed, but this decision was not taken lightly.
For those that have ordered Whittlesea merchandise like Geocoins, Pathtags or Event Shirts as well as anyone that was going to be camping onsite over the mega weekend, refunds will be issued (in due course – there are lots to process).
For those that want to have a Victorian MEGA Event to look forward to, we are SUPER excited to announce that the 2021 MEGA Event will be held in the North East of the state, in the beautiful town of Wangaratta. The committee have been busy at work getting things organised and ready. More information can be obtained from our website The Wangaratta Event 2021. We hope to see you all there next year.
The Whittlesea Event Organising Committee have gotten your camping options sorted. If you’re planning to bring your caravan, tent or swag, then head on over to our shop to book your camping spot. Camping on site is a great way to catch up with old friends and meet new ones as well as be in on all the action of the Mega!
Powered sites cost only $30 per night! Unpowered sites are $20 per night.

The finer details:
- There is water available nearby, but not dedicated to each site.
- You will be required to supply your own power leads, as there will not be any available. There are a mix of 10A and 15A supplies, please specify if you definitely require a 15A supply, otherwise you will get a random allocation.
- Each site will be clearly marked, with room for one caravan and one car only.
For more information, check the fine print beneath each listing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you need more information.

We would like to present to you our fabulous logo for The Whittlesea Event!
Designed by Darren Mannix (omegaman1971) of Omegaman Designs. Many thanks to all who submitted a design.
Whittlesea is the bridge between the city and the country. It encompasses both urban and rural caching – the best of both worlds in one location – and event!
I’m sure you’ll want to get your hands on a copy of our new logo and so we’d also like to announce that you can put in your pre-orders for Event Polos right now! Click here to go to our secure site to order. Shirts are available in men’s, women’s and kid’s sizes – all with or without embroidery and featuring our lovely new logo!
