PLACING GEOCACHES - COVID-19 - Northern Territory
There are currently no Covid-19 restrictions on placing caches in NT. 
Events are being published, and attendees must follow venue protocols which may apply.

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.

The intent of the Event Stacking guideline is to prevent the creation of two or more events which can easily be attended by the same attendees, thus turning it into a smilie gathering exercise rather than a genuine social meetup.

For this state, the guideline is interpreted as –

Events must be time separated such that the start of an event must be at least 4 hours after the end of another event, if the events are within 30km if both events are in the city, and 50 km if one or both are rural.

CITOs are exempt from this restriction.

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.
