Walking paths and Geocaching
There are 1,675 geocaches near Hobart. And that’s not all—there are millions of geocaches around the world, just waiting for you to find them. To get started, all you need is a free Geocaching account and the Official Geocaching app or a GPS.
If you have never heard of Geocaching before now, think of it this way:
Geocaching is like a treasure hunt.
It is for adults and children and families.
It requires you to get out and about (which is good for your fitness).
It enables you to visit locations of interest: geological features, views, curiosities and places of historical significance.
It is part of a huge international online community.
You need a smart phone or a GPS in order to engage in geocaching.
The app is FREE. Just go to https://www.geocaching.com/play
And if Geocaching is not your thing, here is a link to an easy walking tour around Margate which happens to take in a couple of geocache locations but which can be enjoyed all by itself. It is a round trip.
Look on the website for extra information and STORIES about the sites that can be enjoyed by children.
The Kingborough Council maintains a number of walking tracks in the area. Details are available via this link:
