The South Coast and Tablelands Scouting Region stretches from Helensburgh in the North to the Victorian Border in the South, and incorporates areas West to Goulburn, Queanbeyan and Jindabyne.

When we say ‘adventure’, we’re not just talking about the awesome range of outdoor activities that Scouts offers! In fact, ‘adventure’ can mean any exciting, novel or unusual experience, and Scouts offers such a huge range of opportunities that there’s always something new to try. And you can join at any age from 6 upwards!

Scouts are separated into age-based Sections – Joey Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (7.5-11), Scouts (10.5-15), Venturer Scouts (14.5-18) and Rover Scouts (18-25), with each Section taking more responsibility for their own activities as they progress. All Sections share a steady diet of self-respect, confidence, leadership, teamwork, creativity, environmental awareness and community involvement, and there are plenty of events and activities in which everyone can get involved together.

Scouts couldn’t provide such amazing experiences for young people without a huge group of dedicated and enthusiastic adult volunteers. If you’re aged 18 or over, why not contact your local Group and find out how you can rediscover adventure too? It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been a Scout… we’ll teach you everything you need to know!
