GPS Maze Australia Update

Hopefully by now you’ve heard the aMAZEing news that a GPS Adventure Exhibit is coming to Australia for the first time ever. In fact it’s the first time an adventure maze has ever made an appearance in the southern hemisphere! It’s free to attend at The Wangaratta Event 2021. Make sure you let us know if you are coming to the MEGA and the MAZE!

We have been heartened by the response for people to come on board as a Foundation Friend of the Maze (FFOTM) supporter. Without your help the Maze would not be going ahead. Thanks a million! FFOTM would have received an email (Update #1) that they need to respond to. If you haven’t responded please check your emails and do so quickly!

We still have a room for a few more Foundation Friend of the Maze members. This opportunity closes on Sunday August 8th so if you are keen to become a FFOTM join soon!

We are also excited to show you the merchandise that will be available at the Maze. This includes some aMAZEing coins, a sling bag, a t-shirt and a pen & sticker. These items are all available for purchase in the Geocaching Victoria store.

The coins are currently on a pre-order special for $30 (usually $35) and come in two colours – orange and grey and the maze is 3D!

Or maybe coins aren’t your thing. Maybe you need a funky new bag to store all your geocaching goodies in?

Head to the website to view and purchase all merchandise items.

As the committee continues to work behind the scenes we would love to hear from people who have a great geocaching picture or story that we might be able to include in the Maze. Also any historical item you might like to donate? If you have something to contribute please email geocachingvic@gmail.com

Events like this are only possible because of our sponsors. We thank our Foundation Friends of the Maze, our friends at Geocaching Victoria IncGeostuff, Exponential Digital Marketing and Geocaching HQ for their support.  

An A-Maze-ing Adventure!

Something very exciting is happening in November. Not only will we be having our first Victorian Mega in more than a year with The Wangaratta Event, but we will also be having an Australian First!

Thanks to our very generous sponsors, Geocaching Victoria, Geostuff.com.au and Geocaching.com, you can join us in the very first GPS Adventure Maze (GC9C72H) in Australia – indeed, in the Southern Hemisphere! This will be the first time an Adventure Maze will appear outside of Europe or the US.

But what is this wondrous thing, I hear you ask?

A GPS Adventure Maze leads you through a series of rooms that explores the wonders of GPS and Geocaching. It will be a delight for new and experienced cachers alike. And, on completion, there is a brand spanking new cache icon (in Australia, at least!) for you to collect!

This is also your chance to get in on the ground floor, so to speak. Yes, YOU can be the first to have this Amazing Adventure by becoming part of the exclusive “Foundation Friends of the Maze”. Foundation Friends will not only pick up some exclusive merch, but they will be the first (and only) people to go through the Maze on the Friday night of the Wangaratta Mega Event. So, what are you waiting for? Click here to find out more and to join the exclusive “Foundation Friends of the Maze”.

Saturday and Sunday are expected to be very busy indeed, so make the most of this opportunity.
