Geocaching The Grampians Way!

4 Jul 2019 by Amanda Cochran

Have you tried one of the world’s fastest-growing activities the whole family can join in with?

Geocaching is an outdoor adventure that is happening all the time, all around the world. To play, participants navigate to find cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. It’s a craze that’s taking off and is played across the globe. There are millions of geocaches in 190 countries waiting to be discovered, and the Grampians is home to several.

Fun, easy and suitable for all ages, geocaching is the world’s biggest treasure hunt. It’s a fantastic activity for the kids, and if you’re visiting the Grampians these school holidays, you may want to try it out.

Featuring the National Park, mountains, waterfalls, bush walks, and abundant wildlife, the Grampians is a natural wonder and waiting to be explored. And to experience all of its wonders, Grampians Treasure Hunts leads you on a geocaching adventure full of hidden gems and loads of competitive fun, plus you could even win a prize!

The team at Grampians Treasure Hunts have created multiple hunts of adventure and exploration that take around 3 hours to complete.

For the families and kids, there’s “Lets Kids be Kids” which focuses on families working together and creating memories. Then there’s “Aboriginal Heritage” which casts you back hundreds of years to discover snippets of the lives of the traditional owners. The team is constantly creating and evolving the hunts, so make sure you check with them on new geocaching adventure themes.

All activities are GPS based and easily followed using the app, so grab the family, your fully charged smart device, a car, snacks, and water, and get ready to play to explore the beauty and wonder of the Grampians!
