Current position on publishing caches in Northern Territory (Updated Nov 16th, 2020)

Event organisers must ensure

  • Social distancing of 1.5 metres must be observed
  • If more than 100 people are expected, a special checklist must be prepared.
    (This is unlikely in NT, if necessary discuss with your Reviewer.)

Area Where Special Conditions Apply

Kakadu National Park

Geocaches need to be placed close to paths and tracks. The Reviewer may ask to see permission if there is any doubt.

There are many other areas where access requires a permit, and permission from the area management will be required for placing a geocache. Especially the major venues such as Uluru, Kata Tjuta etc.

About This Guide

The local laws and guidelines for geocaching placement vary from place to place. As community reviewers learn geocache placement policies for a certain location, they can add it here. This site may not be a complete or accurate list of land policies. These policies are made by the land owner or manager, they are neither the reviewer’s nor Geocaching HQ’s. This guide is just for reference, if no policies for the area you’re looking for are listed, that doesn't mean no policies exist. You must still obtain permission to place your geocache from the landowner or land manager,comply with all applicable laws, and follow the Geocaching Listing Requirements.

If you have an update, email the community reviewer(s) listed.
