May 2010 is the tenth anniversary of geocaching. To mark the occasion, Geocaching NSW is hosting a 10 Years! event close to Australia's first ever geocache - placed only two weeks after the first 'geostash' in the United States.
The event will take place at Baker's Flat picnic area in Lane Cove National Park. Entry to the area is via Lady Game Drive.
Festivities will commence at 11 am. More details soon. Watch this listing to receive updates, including any wet weather contingency plans.
BBQ facilities are available at the picnic ground, along with toilets and limited shelter. Please note this is a BYO everything affair - food, drinks, etc.
A group photo will be taken at
12 noon1 pm in order for the event (and you) to receive the 'special' 10 year event icon. Please wear something 'Australian' for the photo. Be creative; green and gold, inflatable kangaroos, flags, etc.
The event is expected to wind up around 2 pm
Apart from the festivities, the event is a perfect opportunity for new geocachers to pick up some tips on finding and hiding geocaches. Don't forget you can also swap geocoins and travel bugs at the event.
Please register your intention to attend by leaving a 'will attend' entry on this page.
|This event is taking place in a National Park, therefore there is a $7 per car entry fee - annual pass holders are exempt.
Also note, the placing or finding of geocaches is not allowed in NSW National Parks. The Lane Cove geocache, located on the other side of the river, is a VIRTUAL geocache.
Geocachers should NOT venture off the path to stand at the coordinates. A photo of the area from the path or car park is sufficient to log this virtual cache as a find.
