Geocaching in St Arnaud – Night Cache Adventure

If you enjoy heading out after dark and geocaching by torchlight, St Arnaud is the place to be! With five fantastic night cache experiences on offer taking you around the outskirts of St Arnaud, you won’t be disappointed.

Hunt for the elusive Pot Of Gold (GC5DH73) north east of St Arnaud then take the time to enjoy the Starry Starry Night (GC7YCP6)

Continuing around to the south you can enjoy a Bush Meander by Torchlight (GC64CBE) before heading around the south west of St Arnaud to check out the Wheelie Wheelie Cranky Night Cache (GC6TWJ3).

There’s been sightings of some alien activity north west of St Arnaud, ensure your torches are charged up before investigating INVASION (GC7D3AN).

These five existing caches have a combined total of over 340* smilies earning 119* well deserved favourite points. Keep an eye out, there may be a new addition for 2019…  So if you’re heading to the MEGA and aren’t afraid of the dark, these multi’s most definitely need to be added to that ever-growing to-do list.
