Choosing a cache

Given it's your first geocaching adventure, we suggest trying a cache that is

  • Nearby, so you can go home for more clues if necessary
  • Easy, so you have a good chance of finding it
  • Recently found, so there's a good chance that the cache hasn't been muggled

To identify this type of cache:

  • Go to Geocaching Australia (open this in a new window so you can refer to this page at the same time)
  • Type your suburb in search box the top right hand side of the screen and press "enter"

You should see a list of cache. If you don't, then try typing in a nearby larger suburb or area in the search box.

To find an easy cache, look for one with easy difficulty and terrain. These are shown as columnn "Diff" and "Terr" in the list.
