Itinerary

Venturer Scouts are not locked into a set itinerary and have the freedom to choose from various activities which include:

– Canyoning
– Mountain biking
– Hiking Katoomba
– Jenolan Caves
– Abseiling
– Climbing
– Tree Top Adventure
– Scenic World Katoomba
– On-site night activities

 

Itineraries are intended to give participants an idea of the activities on the expedition.
The order they are delivered may vary and all outdoor activities are weather dependent.

Due to the recent bushfires in NSW, the accommodation we intended to utilise for the Blue Mountains expeditions is no longer available. This has meant we’ve had to reassess our accommodation options, which has resulted in moving from camping to backpacker style accommodation.

 

We understand that this may be disappointing news to some however we believe that this expedition still represents great value for money & we are able to support that local community!

Youth Program

Venturers are encouraged to review the itinerary with their Unit Council.
This expedition may be applied to the following Program Essentials and achievement pathways.
