What is a Venture?

An Australian Venture is the major National youth event for the Venturer Scout section (14 – 17 years old) of Scouts Australia. You get to meet other Venturer Scouts from all over Australia and around the world.

For 10 days you will visit different areas of Queensland, try out activities and challenges you may have never dreamed of doing, and make friends for life!

Where is the Venture being held?

The Venture is being held at a purpose built youth campsite just on the Northern outskirts of Brisbane. For further information on the site (Click Here)
