The SA Geocaching June Long Weekend Event has been running since 2002 which makes it the longest running annual geocaching event in Australia.
10th - 13th June 2022
The Queens Birthday is a public holiday celebrated in most states and territories on the second Monday in June, making for a much-looked-forward-to June long weekend. In 2022, the Queens Birthday is on the 13th June in most states.
This Long Weekend makes the perfect calendar date for the "Magic" weekend in June
GC9M7R6 - Clare Caching Carnival
The June Long Weekend Event has become an annual calendar item for South Australian Geocachers. The event has been held in various locations throughout South Australia since 2002. In the early days the game had a variety of different playing styles and over the years, the JLWE has evolved and taken on the current format for the weekend.
The JLWE Committee strive each year for an exciting and different event to help continue to make this a must attend calendar event for all geocachers. We aim to bring geocachers from all over for a weekend of laughter, games, caching and most importantly FUN!!
Over recent years we have had teams participate from as far away as Western Australia and Queensland and of course Geocachers from ALL over South Australia.
When people are asked what is it about the June Long Weekend that keeps you coming back, Geocachers have said "It's the fun of the whole weekend", "Knowing I will catch up with friends that I haven't seen since last years event", "The thrill of the puzzle chase", "The friendship and camaraderie of the weekend", "The time and effort the committee puts into making it an awesome event", "Location, location, location"
This Years theme is:
Carnival (Circus, Celebration & Colour)
Part of the fun of JLWE is coming up with your teams name, thinking about your cache hides and getting creative with your costumes.
We cannot wait to see what this years theme brings us.
