About the Society

The society was initially formed in direct response to a desire by the Department of Conservation to form a relationship with geocachers in New Zealand to discuss geocaching on crown-managed land. Whilst it was not the only reason to form the society, it was the main one.

Recognising that the society should have a wider focus than just geocaching, the focus for the society was decided to be the recreational use of the Global Positioning System in New Zealand.

The society therefore has strong roots in geocaching in New Zealand, but is attracting many people with broader interests in the recreational use of the GPS in New Zealand.
