Will there be on-site accommodation?
At the moment (December 2016) we haven’t planned to organise on-site accommodation. We don’t consider this a core activity since there are plenty of local alternatives. Depending on work-load and progress we might will revisit this at a later stage.
Why are there three different logos?
Since there are so many different things to do in and around Alexandra, we couldn’t settle on just one. Climbing in the Cathedral Ranges, Hiking in the Rubicon Valley and Offroading around Lake Eildon are all things you might like to do!
Is there a hashtag for the event?
Absolutely! It’s #ax2017
Is this a T5 event?
No. As every other Mega Event we have organised, this event is for all cachers.
Can I attend just one day or stop by for a short time?
You can stay as long or short as you like.
Will there be a GeoArt or a Power-trail published for the event?
We believe Power-trails and GeoArt distract geocachers from the social get togethers. The caches will still be there a week after the event, the geocachers won’t be. However there is a big bunch of caches just an hour west.
Which iconic caches are near Alexandra?
Is this a free event?
Yes! Attending the event is FREE. You have to pay nothing, nada, nichts, zéro, niente, 无 [無], nic, пустота
