State Rally 2nd - 4th August

State Rally - just like Scouthike ... only different ...

NSW State Rally is run each year in August at Cataract Scout Park by the Branch Commissioner for Scouts. It provides the opportunity for Scouts all over NSW to attend as a Patrol to do some light weight easy hiking between four main activity centres around Cataract Scout Park.

This event is unique in its structure and format, and somewhat different to our own Scout Hike in the following ways:
  • Hiking distances are much less – making State Rally immediately attractive to those new to hiking or not able to cope with extended distances required at Scout Hike
  • The terrain is flat – again making it attractive to those new to hiking and not able to cope with the endurance required in the forest setting at Scout Hike
  • Camping facilities, eg showers, toilets, washing up, etc, are more readily available and up-market to those available in the forest – as you would expect

We intend to field at least one patrol to State Rally this year. Please indicate your participation ASAP so that we can register you as a patrol
