The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) allow the placing of geocaches on some controlled land provided the placement has been authorised in writing by an NPWS officer
Physical caches will not be allowed in:
* Aboriginal areas
* declared wilderness areas
* nature reserves, or
due to the specific conservation requirements of these areas.
This policy sets out the conditions under which geocaching can take place in parks.
A Google Earth KMZ file is available for download from my Google Drive by visiting here.
The Sydney Olympic Park Authority require that permission be obtained before placing geocaches
in most of Sydney Olympic Park.
Currently there is no written policy, however SOPA want to know about all geocaches within their boundary.
The M7 motorway is privately owned with public access. The owners require that permission be obtained before any geocaches are placed along the M7 and the adjacent cycleway.
Infrastructure NSW (formerly Barangaroo Delivery Authority) have advised that currently they do not permit geocaches within the confines of Barangaroo, Sydney.
Their main concerns:
a) potential of any items being added or placed into the cache,
b) the risks associated with (a),
c) the reputational risks associated with (a)

Event stacking allows a person to easily leave one event and directly attend another.
The guidelines do not allow such stacking. Events held in NSW urban areas require at least 4 hours time difference between the end of one and the start of another if the two events are within 30km GCD of each other. Rural events require 50km GCD spacing.
