Geocaching Maker Magic event

Official Maker Magic Event 2023

Well this is something different for GC HQ to come up with and I for one think it's a good idea.

Introducing Maker Magic events – Official Blog (

So I will be hosting an event where you will get the chance to make your own geocache to take home and thus hide a geocache you have made with your own fair hands.

As always all are welcome at geocaching events but this event would be perfect for new cachers wanting to learn a thing or two from the old guard, I think I class myself as one of these, having been caching for over 10 years I am always happy to share any knowledge I have picked up along the way. I'm sure this event will have other seasoned cachers attending who too will be willing to help out.

What you get :

You will have the chance to make your own 100mm PVC pipe cache, if time allows we will talk about other cache making techniques too. 

I will provide :

All you need to make a cache container, having looked at the cost of the parts I will need to ask for donations to cover costs. (Approx $10)

All tools and consumables needed to make the cache. 

BBQ lunch


Saturday 17th June from 11am

This event will be partially outside so dress for June in Tassie, some time will be spent in a warm dry workshop.


This event will have you using tools and chemicals in a workshop environment, while I will do the upmost to ensure your health and safety it is your responsibility to ensure that you keep you and other attendees safe.
