How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This Flash Mob gathering of geocachers will be only 15 minutes long. You MUST be present and sign the log sheet DURING this time to claim this event. After 15 minutes…we're gone!

The event is one small part of the WWFM VI (World Wide Flash Mob event) coordinated and in conjunction with the San Diego WWFM VI hosted by iTrax and FoxTail but since Australia is some 19 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time rather than holding our event simultaneously with the US event at 0500 on Sunday morning this event is at a much more user friendly time


Participants casually position themselves at various locations around the Bourke Street Mall / GPO precinct within sight of but not at GZ

0959 - 1000

Casually make your way towards GZ but as much as you can, act like a muggle, pretend not to know each other or give any indication that something is about to happen but STAY AWAY from ground zero until your GPSr clock tells you it's 1000 EXACTLY


Everyone arrives at GZ. Facitman & Rhinogeo will be there with an Ammo Box. As you arrive, you will be handed a log sheet. Participants will sign the log sheets (which will later become the log book). To qualify for attendance, drop the completed logsheet back in the Ammo Box

1000 - 1010

Mingle. Meet old friends and make new ones. Share stories. Compare this event to WWFM II held at the Shrine of Remembrance, WWFM III at Federation Square, WWFM IV at the State Library and WWFM V at the Queen Victoria Market. But be quick - there is not much time!

1010 - 1013

Participants assemble for the traditional WWFM group photos and to record the group cheerios

1013 - 1014

A logsheet will be drawn from the Ammo Box to award FTF
honours to one of the participants


One minute warning announced - Prepare to leave


IMMEDIATELY LEAVE the area. The event area will be evacuated without a trace. The log ammo box will be packed up. If you didn't get to it in time you can't log the event. Only those participants whose names appear on the log sheets may log this event

If everything goes right we will have had people coming out of nowhere and gathering for 15 minutes, holding a geocaching event and then disappearing

For the Flash Mob to have its full effect, it must appear to come from nowhere and disappear just as quickly
