We have planted a themed geocache near the LCA2010 conference venue.

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices.

The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

The worldwide Geocaching hobby is centred around www.geocaching.com, and in New Zealand we have www.gps.org.nz. There are around 3,000 geocachers active in New Zealand, with a guide to caching in this country available

A special themed cache has been set up for conference participants:
