25th Australian Jamboree 2019

Update – 09/12/2018

Less than a month to go before the 25th Australian Jamboree starts.  4 Scouts from Dayboro will be attending – Connor, Brodie, Poppy and Elisa along with our ever dedicated Scout leader – Roo.  Dayboro Scouts will be located in D320 along with Scouts from Clifton Hill, Queens Park, Goondiwindi and Imbil.

The detailed site map provides insight into the significant work now under way to prepare for this epic event.  On the 1st December 2018, approximately 130 volunteers helpd pack 4 semi trailers with equipment destined for Tailum Band.

AJ2019 organisers have also just released  a catering guidebook – have a read to see what your scout will be  eating(or not) during the 10 days of Jamboree.


The 25th Australian Jamboree will be held from the 4th to the 13th January 2019 at “The Bend MotorSport Park” located at Tailem Bend which  is  approximately 1 hour south east of Adelaide, Souith Australia.  The Dayboro Scout Group will be sending a contingent consisting of approximately 10 Scouts. The cost of sending each Scout member is substantial ($2500) so we plan on starting fundraising activities soon.  As more information  becomes available, this page will be updated
