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:
In Youth Road, Eltham| GC5W1VJ | Victoria, Australia
Other side of the tracks
In Railway Parade, Eltham | GC5W1TF | Victoria, Australia
I Can Jump Puddles
At Alan Marshall Reserve, Main Rd, Eltham | GC5W1T5 | Victoria, Australia
Little round in the square
At Eltham Town Square | GC5VT4D | Victoria, Australia
At the Eltham War Memorial, Main Rd, Eltham | GC5VQ5V | Victoria, Australia
At the historic Train Bridge, Panther Place, Eltham | GC5VKBQ | Victoria, Australia
Caches marked with a “” 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.
