Important Notice: Coronavirus "COVID-19"

All international travel on behalf of Scouts Australia is now suspended until 31 July 2021. 

This includes all National Contingents, Branch Friendship Tours, Conferences, Workshops and Meetings.

This is an extremely disappointing decision for many hundreds of members that were due to depart on their planned travel during these months, however the safety and welfare of our members is always our highest priority.

We look forward to providing more replacement opportunities for overseas travel in the future.



Scouting is a passport to experience the world in a way that most travellers can’t enjoy.

You’re part of a global movement which unites 47 million people. What better way to make new friends from different countries and share some incredible cultural experiences?!

If travel isn’t an option just yet, you can find yourself a pen pal or get involved in JOTA/JOTI which happens in October every year.

If you are keen for adventure, there are a few ways to go about it including International Events and Contingents, Group Friendship or Service trips. You can also have an international experience without leaving your hall!
