Aussie Geocachers Unite!

Guest Zaph

Welcome to the Australian Geocaching Forum

 

Summer is fast approaching, so its a perfect time to start geocaching. Feel free to post your stories of the hunt on the forum, or anything else relevant to geocaching in Australia.

 

Right now there are just 4 caches in Australia:

VIC: 1

NSW: 2

QLD: 1

 

Thats 4 caches in 7.6 million sq km ! Even NewZealand has managed to get 5 icon_smile.gif

 

About me:

I'm Kevin 'Zaph' Burfitt, I write computer games for a living (Infogrames Melbourne House: (S37'50.33" E144'58.5")

I use a Rand McNalley Streetfinder GPS for the PalmV - The Palm slots into the GPS making it a convenient little device (the GPS has no display of its own)

6 in NZ... Ok, I think I'll have to go out and plant a stash this weekend too then!

 

I think I might combine a day trip to visit a degree-confluence ( http://www.confluence.org/ ) with planting a stash... two birds with one stone icon_smile.gif

I'm going to Melbourne for Christmas, plan on visiting "Melbourne's first by George". Any cachers in Melbourne want to get together for a cup of coffee or whatever?

Hi Zaph, I would like to help you increase the number of geocach sites in Australia!

 

I'm a journalist at The Australian newspaper and I would like to write a story about geocaching. I'm interested in how geocaching works; why do you like it; how do work out where you're going to stash your treasure; what do you put in your stashes; is it hard to find the treasure when you use your GPS; etc.....

 

Could you please call me on mobile: 0418 186 952 or email me at: sallyhaynes@hotmail.com

 

Thanks very much,

Sally Haynes.
