We Have Some aMAZEing News!

Geocaching Victoria is excited to announce that the GPS Adventure Maze will be returning to Victoria really soon, after recently travelling all the way to Townsville in April.

The GPS Maze will make its third appearance at The Whittlesea Event (GC8EW40) on 19th – 20th November 2022 (GC9N1CX).

For those that don’t know, the GPS Adventure Maze Exhibit is a rare event icon that originally appeared in the USA in 2007. The Exhibit, initially hosted by Geocaching HQ, travelled around the USA and Canada until 2015 before being retired. The Czech Geocaching Association were allowed to create their own maze in 2013 and it first appeared in Prague of that year. The Czech maze travelled to the UK and Germany in 2015, back to the Czech Republic in 2017, to Austria in 2018 and Czech Republic in 2022. The Texas Geocaching Association began their own maze in 2019 and appeared in Fort Worth in that year. It has travelled to Georgia, Ohio and Kansas in 2021. Finally, GeoNord are bringing the maze to France for the first time ever in 2022.

This maze, created by Geocaching Victoria, will be the third maze in the southern hemisphere and will make Australia only the 7th country in the world to host a maze.
