A GPS Adventure Maze is coming down under and will make it’s debut at The Wangaratta MEGA Event this coming November.
The GPS Adventure Maze is also brought to you by the group known as the Foundation Friends of the Maze. This group of geocachers have from the beginning supported the construction of this maze and our efforts to bring this unique icon to Australia. Foundation Friends of the maze get a very limited editon geocoin, specially minted for them only. Also, on the Friday before the MEGA, only Foundation Friends of the Maze will get an exclusive invite to attend the maze and avoid the crowds that are expected over the MEGA weekend.
