Geocaching NSW Challenge Geocaches

Old School Challenge Cache

firstcache 300x200If you feel you’ve had your fill of micros in the suburbs, or frustrating puzzles that even ASIO find hard to decode, then here’s a challenge for you - the Geocaching NSW Old School Challenge (GC406HT).

To claim this geocache you will need to have completed the challenge of finding and logging 10 of the oldest active geocaches in New South Wales before signing the logbook and logging it online. The 10 must have been hidden in the year 2000 or 2001. As of 13 December 2012 there are 44 eligible geocaches.

The geocache is in Lane Cove National Park (with permission from NPWS), the same park where Australia's first geocache was hidden in May 2000.

State Challenge Cache

roadsign 300x200Are you looking for a challenge? Geocaching NSW has a challenge for you. 

We have launched our Geocaching NSW State Challenge geocache - GC3CA9M.

To log a find on this geocache, hidden in the Blue Mountains, you must have logged a cache in each of the 14 major regions as defined by the Division of Local Government's "Local Council Boundaries" when the cache was published. There is a link to a Google Earth overlay showing the boundaries in the cache description.

There is no time restriction. If you've already found a cache in each of the 14 areas, you're already eligible.

Each finder will be added to our Geocaching NSW State Challenge Roll of Honour below, as well as the thrill of having geocached around our great state. What are you waiting for?
