Caches listed on GCA
- caches hosted specifically on Geocaching Australia (these caches have a GA or TP prefix);
- plus some caches hosted on other cache listing websites.
Some (but not all) caches hosted on other cache listing websites are also available on Geocaching Australia (GCA) for consolidated searching of logs, ratings and statistics of both GCA and non-GCA caches.
Caches hosted on other sites are added into the GCA database by the following mechanisms:
- All unarchived geocaching.com caches located in Australia are updated regularly via user contributions
- Other caches outside Australia are "discovered" by GCA when users upload logs.
Cache Pages for non-GCA caches display limited information and contain a link to the Cache Page on the original hosting website, this is for legal and copyright reasons.
The format of the Cache Page for GCA caches is described here.
