The Scouts of Australia and the Australian Chapter of the World Baden-Powell Fellowship have pleasure in inviting Baden-Powell Fellows and their friends from all over the world to join His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Honorary Chairman of the World Scout Foundation, to the 69th Baden-Powell Fellowship event in Australia.
In our fellowship tradition, during this event we will welcome new members of the Fellowship and recognise those who are moving through the Honours Program. Each participant will
be buddied with Australian Scout youth hosts to assist you throughout the event.
The 69th Baden-Powell Fellowship event takes place on 17-21 March 2016 in Australia, in the city of Melbourne, capital of the state of Victoria. Melbourne is a dynamic city of culture, art and great food with plenty of unique and memorable things to do.
Melbourne is also Australia’s sporting capital, and regularly hosts international events such as the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, also being held on March 17-20.
For many this is a long way to travel, but there is so much to see around Melbourne and across the vast continent of Australia, so make the most of your stay down under.
Melbourne will be an exciting city during this period. Hotels are already booking out, so you will need to book quickly. A variety of hotel rooms and suites have been reserved at the Park Hyatt located next to Melbourne’s beautiful garden precinct on the very edge of the Central Business District.
