Dieback Awareness Session

You may have heard about Dieback but do you know what it's all about? Bruno Rikli a science and bushland management specialist will be providing important information about how geocachers' can help to protect the natural environments where they walk.

 Amazing Race

At this years Event will will be holding a race around the South West, the idea is for you to join up with fellow geocachers and tour the country side answering questions at certain destination and finding bonus stages and or answers along the way. There is no obligation for you to finish all aspects of the race so you will be free to drive to as many or as little destinations as you wish. 

This also means that you will be able to collect geocaches along the way if you have some on the “Must Do” list or if you have been here before you may have enough time to complete the entire question set. 

 

What you will need to do prior to the event is

1) Organise who you will be completing this with family members or friends new or old. 

2) Have your car and any Geocaches you are wanting to find ready to travel between Dunsbourough and Margaret River. 

3) Download the Actionbound App ready to scan in the required QR code to start the race at 1pm on Saturday. 

The aim is for you to enjoy yourself at your own pace, as much as its called the amazing race there is no prize for the first one back to the event. You will be getting points for all locations visited and for all questions answered correctly. The team with the most points will be awarded a prize. This will be the main activity for the afternoon however further information sessions will also be available at the hall
