GeocachingThe World’s Largest Treasure Hunt

Head outdoors and go on a hunt for treasures large and small, using your mobile phone. Put Geocaching on your bucket list for better days as it's not advisable to be rooting around under bushes or scaling walls in your local park just now. But when it is safe to go back on the hunt, for those of you who are based in Melbourne, take a good look out for the Cache which my boys and I hid in our neighbourhood a couple of years ago. It is called Newest Neighbour and it contains a small history lesson on Timor-Leste, prepared by my son, Daniel. Follow the link to get you started:
