Australia’s first ever exciting Geocaching Mega Event WAS held in Wagga Wagga which is located in the heart of the Riverina region in Southern Central NSW.
THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.
Wagga Wagga is the largest inland city in NSW with a population of over 60,000. The city is very close to the geographical centre between Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide and is nestled on the banks of the magnificent Murrumbidgee River. There are approx. 160 geocaches located within a 20 km radius.
Wagga Wagga is a dynamic and cosmopolitan regional city with thriving businesses and boasts fantastic sports and arts communities. The city offers a temperate climate, is rich in cultural heritage and has a wealth of fantastic attractions making it an ideal destination for visitors all year round. It is the gateway to many attractions within the Riverina.
The Oz Mega location is at “Camp Kurrajong” within the Kurrajong Reserve, north east of the city, on the road to Oura (named the Gundagai or Oura Road), about 9 km from the north end of the main street of the city, Fitzmaurice Street. The 15 acres of natural bush reserve is owned by the Scout Association,"Riverina Division".
Included in the amenities are two large halls, 2 toilet blocks, 2 shower blocks, bunk dormitories for 81 people, which includes bedrooms with a choice of either 4 beds or 8 beds in them. But the highlight is a picturesque facility with privacy all around, and is the ideal location for geocachers, as it is very flat and has ample camping facilities.
