Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Brisbane has a large Geocaching community that is constantly growing in size.
Brisbane has a large number of bushland areas, providing plenty of opportunities for cache hides. There are a similarly high number of parks and recreation areas making it an ideal spot for geocaching.
While Brisbane is normally fine and sunny, heavy amounts of rain do fall at times, particularly during Summer when afternoon storms aren't uncommon; this will result in muddy conditions for about 24 hours after the rainfall. Most Brisbane caches are waterproof with Ammo boxes, Sistema containers and Eclipse Mint tins being the most commonly used cache containers.
Queensland National Parks
Information on placing Geocaches in Queensland National Parks controlled areas is located on the Queensland wiki page []
Regular events are held where you can meet and interact with other geocaches. Most of these events are relaxing fun days, but you'd need to check the specifics for any given event to see if it would suit you. Upcoming events will be listed at the top of the newest caches in Queensland list and on the Queensland Geocaching Calendar.
Upcoming Brisbane Based Events
No upcoming Brisbane events.
