Geocaching in the Ironbarks

After we stumbled upon our first Geocache the kids wanted to do it again.

Looking at the geocache map, we discovered that there are a few in our home town.

We decided that our first official Geocaching adventure would be one called “The Nature of the Bark”.

Funnily enough this particular cache was on a track that Tom and & had walked the week before.

Because of that we (adults) had a fair idea of where the treasure would be.

Geocaching-LocatingFirst up we had to locate satellites and input our co-ordinates.

We took the path, and ask the kids what they thought they would find, and what they would trade.

Once the GPS started beeping we knew we were very close.

Now it was a matter of searching the area, and viola! We found it.

Geocaching-StawellOur first official Geocache find! Woohoo! We were all just a bit excited.

It’s safe to say that the kids are hooked on Geocaching.
