Eltham gets 6 new Geocaches

Looking to get into geocaching? Eltham has recently had 6 new geocaches installed, inviting more geocachers into the outer suburban town.

Geocaching, a family friendly global treasure hunt, involves using a GPS locator to go to a target set of coordinates and locate an item.  The item can be a super small magnetic canister, a camouflaged container, or a medium to large storage container depending on the cache.  Most contain a logbook to sign as well to prove you’ve been there.

Eltham’s new cache’s area range of these.

The idea is that people visiting a cache location do so for a reason more than simply “to get a cache” but that there is some significant reason for visiting the area.  A centre of community activity, an historical monument or a scenic view.

The 6 new caches are:

Caches marked with a “Premium Member Only Cache” symbol are Premium member only caches which are available to people once they have paid for a monthly, quarterly or annual membership.  If you try some of the generally available caches, and find you like it, then paying for a premium membership is a great way to get access to many more caches.

Geocaching is also a great way to get some exercise and to get out of the house for the whole family.
