Geocaching is a fun outdoor treasure hunting game that anyone with a GPS device or smartphone can play. It involves following clues to search for hidden containers called geocaches or caches. The caches may contain all sorts of treasure and trinkets to be exchanged, clues to other caches or items that can be tracked such as Travel Bugs. Geocaching is something that you can do all over the world and it is always exciting to find a cache. You must always take care to keep the location of the cache a secret – that’s part of the fun. Geocaching is a great way to explore the parks and places within the Murraylands area.
There are loads of caches hidden all over the Murraylands, with more than 100 in and around Tailem Bend, many of them designed for families to do together.
