Types of Geocaches

Here are some of the most common types of geocaches:

  1. Traditional Cache: These are the most common and recommended place to start for Geocaching newbies. Containers are hidden at given coordinates, will vary in size, and are accompanied by a logbook. It’s a good idea to select beginner geocaches that are slower ratings for difficulty and
  2. Multi-Cache: This type of cache involves at least two locations whereby the first stage contains a clue for the next stage and so forth. It’s a bit more challenging than the traditional cache as it requires you to visit multiple locations. These often have a regular geocache container at the
    final co-ordinates.
  3. Mystery Cache: For a more challenging adventure, the mystery cache is for you. Coordinates are discovered by solving a puzzle. This adds extra difficulty and fun to the geocaching experience.
    If you’re a beginner, take another experienced geocacher with you to help you get started.
  4. Nano Caches: These are tiny, similar in diameter to an Australian 5 cent piece, often magnetic containers with the logbook rolled up inside. These can be very difficult to find, and you may need tweezers to get out the log. A log rolling tool can be handy to get the log back to its correct size to put back inside the nano.
  5. Micro Caches: Are bigger than nano caches but still pretty small, often like the old 35mm film canisters. You need to look carefully and perhaps read the recent logs and clue (if supplied)
