This page contains information specific to Geocaching Australia.
Geocaching Australia provides Cacher statistics at courtesy of Caught@Work.

The website also provides statistics for individual cachers. This can be reached by selecting the "Statistics" link on the cacher page, or by direct link, for example


  • These stats are for cachers in the country / state you select.
  • The cacher is slotted into a particular country / state based on either:
  • a. Their selected state preference in their My Settings.
  • b. If they do not have a state preference set, based on the country / state in which they have found the most caches.
  • Go to the Cachers tab (top navigation bar) then select Stats.
  • Choose the source (All sources or Geocaching Australia only), choose the country and where applicable, the state.
  • Choose the graph to view.
  • The graph names are a little esoteric and its difficult to identify the entire function in a relatively short name, but if you scroll through them slowly you should be able to identify a pattern.
  • The majority of the graphs are "Top 50 Cachers" style graphs.
  • Example:
  • Select All sources, Australia, South Australia, Cachers by finds.
  • Graphs are only generated once per day, the first time the graph is called for the day. This is a performance requirement as some of the graph details are very onerous on the database to extract.

A Cacher:

  • These stats are for an individual cacher.
  • There is a secondary subtab which appears on the cacher page.
  • You can choose from Details, Statistics, Cachers, Gallery, Plots, Graphs, Banner, Blog.
  • Selecting Graphs as an example will bring you to a new page where you can select the graph to view.
  • Example:
  • Select Finds.
  • Graphs are regenerated in realtime and are not cached, so whenever you see a graph you will always have the most up to data ta based on what is in the GCA database.
  • Feel free to check out the subtabs for the other areas to see what sort of statistics exist for those areas.
