Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. There are 3,707 active geocaches around Brisbane! So therefore, there’s plenty of ‘treasure’ hunting options for your family. Don’t let the ‘GPS enabled devices’ stress you out.
