How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:


Welcome to the Canberra Mapping Challenge. This cache will require you to visit every suburb within the ACT.


This challenge cache will require you to find a cache in all 113 of Canberra's suburbs. That means you will find 113 caches at a minimum. The suburb limits are as defined by ACTMAPi. You then need to create a bookmark list (like this one). Once you have fulfilled these requirements, you can log a find on this cache.


  1. Only caches that you have found count towards the challenge
  2. The caches can be archived as well as active
  3. Caches that are on a border between two suburbs can count for either suburb
  4. You can sign the logbook before completing the challenge but you must complete the challenge component before logging. This does not apply for FTF
  5. You can only use a cache once. You CANNOT reuse a cache for another suburb if you have already used it
  6. You can only log this cache ONCE
  7. Any suburbs that currently do not have a cache in them do not count in this challenge. Currently, this only applies for Uriarra Village
  8. Labcaches and locationless caches do not count. Only caches listed on count towards this challenge
  9. The suburb in which a cache is located is given by the location of its icon
  10. This one can count as your find for Farrer. You do not need to find a cache for Tharwa

You bookmark list should be named "The Canberra Mapping Challenge (Your username)" and the description should be "Found as part of The Canberra Mapping Challenge (GC5KB4J)". You should also include this cache as part of the list, so it shows up on the listing. You can also use the checker on Project-GC below, thanks to sumbloke!
