On this page we are tracking progress in Scouting the Boundary.

As of late October 2013, we have scouted just over 75 km (25% of the target 303 km), and have firm plans lodged to scout another 63 km.  That leaves 166 km of the main section of the ACT boundary to be scouted between now and April next year.  The ACT Rovers are also planning on scouting the ACT boundary down at Jervis Bay.  Go Rovers!

In the map below Green is unwalked, Yellow is planned, and Red is completed.  Note the  geocoded photographs of Scouts and Guides having fun Scouting the Boundary.  To see the pictures, you may need to click through to Panaramio.

How are we doing?

    Hi, I am the Guide Leader for 1st Higgins Junior Guides (ages 6-10) and we would like to be involved in Scouting the Boundary. We thought we could do the section from Homeleigh Station Wallaroo Road to the Barton Highway. If I’m reading the map right this should be a suitable length and challenge for my age group of girls. If not, please let me know. Look forward to hearing what the next steps will be. Thanks

    Hi I am the Scout Leader from Orroral Troop, Macarthur Scouts, and we are planning to walk the 16.5 km section from Hume to the Old Cooma Road this Sunday 18 August. Will report back next week on how we went.

    Orroral Troop walked the section S 35° 23.336 E 149° 10.497 to S 35° 27.009 E 149° 08.617 on Sunday 18 August. We will complete to the Old Cooma Rd later in the year.

    Macarthur Orroral Troop has now completed the section to Old Cooma Rd as committed to. So the progress map above is now correct.

    Majura scouts and venturers completed the section today from Kings Hwy to Sutton Rd. 23 km of steep hills up and down! Mountain bikes were great, but wow – not sure legs are going to work tomorrow!

    LBG Venturers Completed the Section from Piccadilly circus to Mount Corree on the weekend, It was actually much easier than expected and fully tracked
