After last year’s fantastic Bathurst invasion, this year we’re looking forward to a great double-event weekend of caching and camaraderie, on February 18 and 19, in historic Goulburn.
Goulburn is less than three hours drive south of Sydney and just over an hour from Canberra. It's not just home to the Big Merino; as Australia's first inland city, Goulburn is brimming with historic sites, museums, heritage homes and geocaches.
We kick off the weekend at 6pm on the Saturday night with A Dinner @ Diggers, our dinner event at the Goulburn Soldiers Club. The late start allows plenty of time to travel, but why not come earlier, or even the night before. There are plenty of geocaching opportunities to fill your day, with well over 100 within 10km of the city. There are mysteries, multis, plenty of traditionals, an earthcache and, of course, our two events.
On Sunday morning, we'll have a Meet’n’Greet event, a Rally by the River, commencing at 10:30am in the Goulburn Historic Waterworks, a parkland and museum set on the banks of the picturesque Wollondilly River. The area has parking, picnic shelters, free electric BBQs, a children’s playground and toilet facilities. As a bonus, we’ll be there on one of the 5 “steaming” days for 2017 so the cafe will be open and one of steam engines will be huffing and puffing.
These events are open to all geocachers. You don’t need to be a GCNSW member. Full details are on the event listings A Dinner @ Diggers and Rally by the River so why not jump across and post a “Will Attend” log now.
