Geocache Description:

This is a five part multi cache. Part one is at the above coordinates, the next four coordinates are in Germany, Canada, UK and USA.

There are five World Caches: World Cache (Australia) World Cache (Canada) World Cache (Germany) World Cache (United Kingdom) World Cache (United States of America)

This is designed as a team event with the team consisting of a member in each of the five countries.
How this cache is designed: One set of coordinates have been sent to each country from each country. So each country has one of the other's coordinates, as in the following table.

Country
Stage1
Stage2
Stage3
Stage4

At the posted coordinates you will find a set of coordinates for one of the other countries. You will have to e-mail these coordinates to your team-mate in that country. That team-mate can then go to that waypoint and find the next set of coordinates which will be for another country, then e-mail it to the team-mate for that country, and so on till the caches are completed.

For example, the team member in Australia finds Stage 1 of World Cache (Australia), and e-mails the coordinates they find to their team-mate in Germany, who can then find Stage 2 of World Cache (Germany). At their local Stage 2, the Germany team will find the coordinates for Stage 3 of World Cache (United Kingdom), which they will e-mail to their UK team-mate.

If you are in Australia, and you would like to join a team for this series, write a note saying you are available. You can also visit the other cache pages looking for team-mates on the links below.

The setting up of World Cache (Australia) which spans three continents and five countries was a complicated but enjoyable task, but there were numerous hurdles along the way.
The “World Cache Series” having their waypoints scattered all around the world are not the average multi caches and required a team that were dedicated to the cause to make this happen.
To my team: Chris (Canada) Christoph (Germany) Colin & Ally (United Kingdom) and Chad (United States of America) We had a few hiccups along the way but stuck together through it all. Thanks to all of you.
A special thanks to the geocaching reviewers for embracing this concept and allowing these caches to proceed in this format.
The World Cache challenge is yours. I hope you enjoy it and gain new global geo-friendships along the way.
