How to get to Scout Camps around Sydney

Select a campsite here or scroll down the page
NORTH SOUTH WEST

There are also many scout halls which are suitable for overnight stays.
Here are a few, as the reference list on the "Scouts NSW" website is not available.

If your hall is available, send me the link [i2 @ robian .net (without the spaces)]



BERRIMA.

The green arrow ia at the start of the road, the camp is at the end of the road.
The camp is on Apple Street, Berrima, Off Old Mandemar Road (1km down river from Berrima Village).

Camp Coutts is a couple of minutes south of Waterfall railway station. It can be walked to from the station via a bush track for most of the distance, taking about 10-20 minutes.

Driving from Sydney, pass the campsite and take the RIGHT HAND turnoff,
then the RIGHT one again, to head you back towards Sydney.
The Camp entrance is on your left soon after the mild curve once the lanes merge.

CAMP KU-RING-GAI.
Ebenezer, near Windsor.

NOTE: The camp is a few hundred Mtrs along the road (heading west) from the green arrow.

There are bunks for about 60 in smaller rooms of mostly 8, plus halls and kitchen facilities etc. Additionally there is PLENTY of grassy camping area, enough space for possibly a few hundred tents.

CATARACT.

Located just outside the entrance to the Cataract Dam picnic grounds, Cataract Scout Camp can accommodate a small group in tents or bunks, or a Jamboree of 10,000 Scouts. The quicker way to travel there from areas east of about Liverpool is to head to the TOP of Bulli pass, and then turn towards Campbelltown, rather than taking the M5 to Campbelltown first (unless coming from near the M7).

I have been advised that as of early 2012, this site also offers Archery courses, with the potential to train to olympic grade. See their website or contact Hume region office for details.

MOUNT KEIRA.


View Larger Map

Mount Kiera Scout camp is probably the most picturesque camp in or around Sydney. It is not far from the Mount kiera Lookout, just north of Wollongong. There is also a Girl Guide camp further down in the valley. The camp's access road is sometimes easy to miss when heading downhill from the lookout.

BADEN POWELL SCOUT CENTRE
Pennant Hills.

The Pennant Hills Training Centre is several minutes walk from Pennant Hills railway station, with tent and bunk options. The camp backs onto bushland so plenty of trail walking possible too.

In early 2012, an excellent new high ropes course and flying fox were added here as well.
