Geocache Description:

GPS Adventure Maze Down Under - Townsville

Bring a UV Torch for the best Maze Experience

Are you ready for an A-Maze-ing Adventure?

A GPS Adventure Maze Exhibit is down under and will make it's second appearance at CacheQLD - Townsville (GC9BVWD) on the 15th - 17th of April, 2022.

The GPS Adventure Maze Exhibit is a rare event icon that originally appeared in the USA in 2007. The Exhibit, initially hosted by Geocaching HQ, travelled around the USA and Canada until 2015 before being retired. The Czech Geocaching Association were allowed to create their own maze in 2013 and it first appeared in Prague of that year. The Czech maze travelled to the UK and Germany in 2015, back to the Czech Republic in 2017, to Austria in 2018 and is due to return to the Czech Republic in 2022. The Texas Geocaching Association began their own maze in 2019 and appeared in Fort Worth in that year. It has travelled to Georgia, Ohio and Kansas in 2021. Finally, GeoNord are bringing the maze to France for the first time ever in 2022.

This maze, created by Geocaching Victoria, will be the second maze in the southern hemisphere and will make Australia only the 7th country to host a maze in the world.

This is a really big deal!

But what exactly is it?


A GPS MAZE is a special type of event cache. It is a travelling educational exhibition that appears at MEGA and GIGA events and is designed to teach people of all ages about GPS technology and geocaching. Until now it has taken place at only 35 locations in North America and Europe. Through partnership with, we offer you the opportunity to visit a GPS Maze exhibition for the second time in Australia!

The very rare GPS Adventures Exhibit icon is earned by completing this Exhibit and signing the logbook.
