Trackables is a generic term that refers to any 'hitchhicker' that can be via a tracking number. This could be a travel bug or even a geocoin.


Can trackables be placed in Geocaching Australia caches?

While possible, it is a practice that should be discouraged as the site does not have a mechanism in place to show that the item has been dropped off in a non-gc cache.

The trackable item then goes into limbo, showing it as still being held by the last cacher. People setting out to seek the item will not be able to easily tell it's actual location. The stay in a gca cache also will not count towards any statistics belonging to that trackable.

GCA caches do not have a facility to show what GC trackables are held within them, nor does a GCA GPX export contain a list of the GC trackables held within.

GCA swaggies, however, WILL work on caches from most sites.
