A Geocacher logging a Virtual cache

A Virtual cache is a type of cache that has no physical container. This is usually done because it would be inappropriate to place a physical container at the location. Reasons for this include:

  • it's an environmentally sensitive location
  • the land owner does not want caches left there

Logging a virtual caches usually requires proof that you have visited the location, usually in the form of a photograph containing your GPS.

Virtual caches are pretty much against the guidelines of, however they are more than welcome at Geocaching Australia.
