How to… Find people to go geocaching with

Geocaching doesn’t have to be a social game, but hunting for caches with a group can be fun. Some caches, like night caches, can be easier in a group, as many eyes make things easier to find. Whilst meeting another gecoacher ‘in the wild’ is often exciting, it doesn’t tend to happen all the time. If your friends or family aren’t particularly interested in geocaching (I know, they must be mad, but it does happen) you might need to meet up with some new people, who think the same way you do, and go geocaching with them.


Here are a couple of ideas how to get in touch with other cachers:

Geocaching Events
They are a great way to meet other geocachers.  Events are held all over the place and they are a fantastic way to meet like minded people to share stories, tips and a few laughs.  To find the upcoming events in Victoria, just follow this link.

Social Media
Another simple way to find other geocachers is using social web platforms like Facebook. In Victoria, there is a plethora of Facebook Groups for all sorts of different areas. Some are solely dedicated towards catching up with others to go caching.

Cache Pages
If you want to do a specific cache, write a note on the cache-page (Click on Log a visit and choose “Write note”) and put the cache on your watch-list. Put down the information about when you want to go and which is the best way to reach you. Bear in mind this is a public website so you might not want to leave your secret phone-number.
