The National Geocaching Challenge is part of Conservation Week 2016.

Check out the DOC website to find out how to play this awesome game then head out to Lake Opouahi, Tutira to find the hidden cache. Geocaching is an international phenomenon. It is an outdoor adventure where players use a free mobile app to find cleverly hidden containers ('caches'). It's been described as a real-world outdoor treasure hunt using GPS coordinates. The DOC geocache in this reserve is a "mini" DOC hut. Great fun for kids and adults alike.

So get outdoors, have some fun and find the hidden geocache at Lake Opouahi, enter the competition and be in to win some amazing prizes. While you are there go for a walk around the lake and have a picnic at the shelter. Air New Zealand and Macpac have donated some awesome prizes so check out the website and get started on your Geocaching Challenge now.
