Geocaching Organizations in Australia

19 posts in this topic

This topic is to let you know about the regional geocaching organizations near you. These groups sponsor event caches and online forums where geocachers in the same area can get to know each other and share information. Geocaching organizations play a pivotal role in maintaining good relations with the land managers for the parks and forests where we play our game. Getting involved in your local group is a great way to make new friends and find answers to questions about the local caching scene.

 

It is up to representatives of the organizations to maintain this thread as a list of links to the Geocaching Groups in Australia. Please feel free to write a brief post about your geocaching group, giving its name, the area where most of its members live, and a link to the group's website, forums or mailing list. If your information changes later on, post a follow-up post.

 

Please do not use this pinned topic to promote individual events or initiatives that your group is undertaking. You can start separate topics for those. The moderating team may split out off topic posts into their own threads.

 

Finally, please note that this thread is not an endorsement by Groundspeak of any organization. It's just a convenient list of links.

 

Thanks!

Geocaching NSW is an incorporated association representing geocachers in the state of New South Wales.

 

The purpose of the association is to represent like-minded geocachers in the state of New South Wales.

 

Our aim is to promote the pastime of geocaching and work with interested groups in ensuring it is seen in a positive light.

 

The association is looking to develop educational materials, organise events, promote the geocaching and possibly run 'educational' workshops on things ranging from building the 'perfect cache' through to getting the most from GSAK (Geocaching Swiss Army Knife).
