Guess where the next Aussie Mega will be - Expires Thursday

Post by bshwckr » 10 December 10 11:49 pm

Based on this "The event is an exciting logistical event and we have scoured the country and found the best location that will dazzle all geocachers." It must be in Newcastle! Newcastle being the only Australian city to be in Lonely Planets "Must Visit" List. http://www.news.com.au/travel/australia ... 5946167212

That being so, I'll be there. It's just down the road!

Wouldn't that be nice but I'm not aware of anything that HAVOC is organising locally.

My guess is Canberra.

My guess is Bendigo.
Visited there on my way home (well, its kind of on the way to NZ... Isn't it??) from Wagga Wagga and had a great time - but did run out of cachers to do after a couple of days.

Yeah, I think Bendigo is the most likely spot they've chosen. Who want to guess the date?

But Newcastle is in NSW, same as Wagga. Seems more likely that it will be in a different state (I think)

Does Newcastle have 2 mayors?

Ballarat and Bendigo are too far apart for the event, but any of the NSW / VIC border towns - Albury/Wodonga, Echuca/Moama, Mildura/Buronga (Covers VIC and NSW and a stones throw from SA) would probably have two mayors and two state tourism authorities. Could do "Canberra and Queenbeyan" but we need to re-establish plenty of the caches (and bridges) first!!

Even more...

Newcastle
Maitland
Port Stephens
Lake macquarie

Don't quote me - it's been a while since I lived there.

Pesky doesn't live far away - wouldn't put it past him to be involved...

All within cooee of each other.
