Re: Aussie maps?

Yup, I was 1670km from home today (on a day trip - sheesh) and the OSM maps I had loaded on the Vista worked fine to find a couple. Which reminds me, better make sure I have the Hobart ones loaded in for next week. Or just use the iPhone to get close and follow the arrow on the Vista. Most GPS's wi...

Aussie maps?

Hey all you down under geocachers. One thing I forgot to check out are maps for my Garmin Oregon - I was told I can find free maps for these online but I don't know where. I got one for Melbourne but I need maps for Cairns and the GBReef, Sydney, Adelaide and Kangaroo Island. Otherwise I won't be ab...

Re: Cairns, Sydney or Melbourne?

Thx for all the ideas. Looks like the Melbourne cache is getting muggled or pilfered of TBs. :(
Sorry I will miss the blue mountain event. I'll keep looking for ideas.

Re: Visiting from Chicago in July

Geocaching.com will search on that postcode system. http://auspost.com.au/apps/postcode.html is the page you want. Type in a town, suburb, or city- making sure you have the correc...

Re: Visiting from Chicago in July

If your going up to Kuranda from Cairns, I really would suggest going up by train, and back via the Skyrail. The view as you crest the range heading east is pretty spectacular. I can't remember which way the trip is booked but I'm looking forward to it for sure. Are there any caches up in Kuranda? ...
