Every four years, Scouts (and for the first time, Venturers) have the opportunity to attend an Australian Jamboree where they join ten thousand other young people and adult volunteers from around Australia and across the world for a ten day camp. The 26th Australian Jamboree will be held at Maryborough Showgrounds and Equestrian Park, hosted by Scouts Queensland from 6-15 January 2025.

Attending a Jamboree is the ultimate experience for any Scout. Imagine spending ten days enjoying the very best Scouting has to offer: awesome activities, new challenges, and endless opportunities to make friends for life. The Jamboree site will become a small city. There is everything you could possibly need, including an outdoor concert arena, activity zones, a marketplace, campsites, retail outlets, live entertainment, a medical centre and a media hub. Now imagine the possibilities when you fill that space with ten thousand Scouts and Venturers - the perfect ingredients to make friends for life!

The campsite is made up of more than 200 units of 36 youth members and 4 leaders, who have their own self contained campsite.

Incredible nightly entertainment at the main arena will be on offer at the Jamboree, with exciting acts featured on stage. Recording artists who have previously performed at Australian Jamborees include Jessica Mauboy, Justice Crew, Samantha Jade, Sammy J, Timomatic, Rogue Traders, Evermore and Ricki-Lee. 

The Purpose of a Jamboree is to provide young people with an active program which encourages participation and elements of self-directed learning and includes activities that stimulate their physical, intellectual, emotional, social, character and spiritual development singularly and collectively leading to character development; thus assisting the young person to develop the attributes of good character as determined by the Scout Promise and Law. It should be the culmination of all they have learnt in Scouting.
