AUSTRALIAN CONTINGENT
20TH NEW ZEALAND JAMBOREE 2013/2014

APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN AND WILL CLOSE ON 31 MAY 2013.

Welcome to the Australian Contingent to the 20th New Zealand Scout Jamboree.  This is your opportunity to join this exciting trip to one of the most picturesque countries in the world and it is just next door, or “across the ditch” as some would say.  Just like Australian Scout Jamborees, New Zealand Jamborees are “JAM” packed with fun and excitement and have an extensive activity program with many variations of activities not seen at Australian Jamborees. 

Contingent Arrangements - The Contingent will depart Australia on 26 December 2013 and arrive in the New Zealand Capital of Wellington where we will stay for two nights.  On 28 December 2013 we will depart Wellington and arrive at the town of Feilding (yes this is the correct spelling – perhaps you could investigate why?).  The Jamboree commences with the opening ceremony on Saturday 28 December 2013 and finishes on Sunday 5 January 2014.  Those not attending the post jamboree tour will fly home on Monday 6 January 2014.

Australian Scouts will be formed into Patrols with Scouts from all over Australia and then hosted by a New Zealand Jamboree Troop.

How much will it cost? - The Australian Contingent Fee for attending the Jamboree including return flights, New Zealand transfers and meals is $2516 per person.

International Flights will depart from Sydney and Melbourne.  Those travelling from Darwin will fly to Wellington via Sydney and those travelling from Hobart will fly to Wellington via Melbourne.  Some participants may be required to fly on Christmas Day.
