Over the past few years we have seen the McDowall Bunya Scout Group, indeed the whole Scouting Association in Australia, grow tremendously. During 2008 we celebrated the Centenary of Scouting in Australia, while 2013 saw the Australian Jamboree held in Maryborough QLD. It’s an exciting time for all members.
At McDowall Bunya, joining the group is like joining our scouting family – we all see our youth grow and develop together. As parents, we all work together side by side in running the group and many lifetime memories and experiences are gained by both the youth and parents.
