South Metropolitan Region covers the southern area of Sydney, bordered by Sydney Harbour to the north, Waterfall and the Royal National Park to the south, the Pacific Ocean in the east and Bass Hill in the west.
Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for more than 100 years. Scouts are in every part of our community, and Scouts is the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia.
The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual development of young people so they may play a constructive role in society as responsible citizens and as members of their local and international communities. This aim is achieved through a strong and active program that inspires young people to do their best and to always be prepared.
Scouts are separated into age-based Sections – Joey Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (7.5-11), Scouts (10.5-15), Venturer Scouts (14.5-18) and Rover Scouts (18-25), with each Section taking more responsibility for their own activities as they progress.
We have many active and enthusiastic groups in all areas, so feel free to contact us for details of a group near you.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been a Scout you can join in the adventure… we’ll teach you everything you need to know!
Welcome to our Region website
Please take a look around to see what is available and feel free to let us know what else you need as the site is always changing.
Most tabs along the top will take you to permanent information pages under the various categories. However the NEWS tab will take you to the latest information posts for all sections. On the right, below the Events Calendar, is an option to view only those posts relevant to one category at a time (eg. only cub items).
If things like the calendar do not show in your browser, then you may need to update to a more recent version. Internet Explorer 8 (the most recent IE available for Win-XP) will not correctly display this site, so you will need to use Chrome etc.
