Geocaching

What is geocaching?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. There are over 2 million caches around the world and over 6 million geocachers.
It is common for geocachers to hide caches in locations that are important to them, reflecting a special interest or skill of the cache owner. These locations can be quite diverse. Look at a small selection of locations in the Gallery below. They may be at your local park, at the end of a long hike, underwater or on the side of a city street. They can be anywhere! There are over 50 caches within a 2km radius of the Adelaide ARPA Office.

If you a regular geocacher or would like to know more about this activity, join us for a mornings caching on Wednesday, October 17 at 10:00am in Kenilworth Road,
