Welcome to The Kurilpa Scout Group

We offer fun and adventure for kids and young people aged 6-18. We're based at the corner of Park Road and Villa Street in Yeronga.

Our group has around 50 youth members, boys and

Kurilpa Scout Den

girls, in the following sections:
  • Joeys - aged 6-8
  • Cubs - aged 7.5-11
  • Scouts - aged 10.5 - 15
  • Venturers - aged 14.5 to 18
We have been established in Yeronga for nearly 70 years (Sept 2017 is our 70th anniversary!). Kurilpa is the indigenous word for water rat and synonymous with the area of South Brisbane, Dutton Park and Yeronga. We've been growing steadily in the last few years and have recently welcomed many new members and leaders who are looking forward to a bright future full of adventure.
Each Scout Group consists of a Committee, which includes all of the Scouting Families, an Executive Committee, which is comprised of elected volunteer members of the Committee, or other interested members of the community; uniformed leaders, other adults in Scouting and of course the Youth Members.

To find out more about the stages and opportunities of Scouting in Australia check out the Scouting Australia website.

About Scouting

Scouting is all about teaching children and young adults to "Be Prepared" for life's challenges and helping them to develop a strong sense of self and community responsibility while having a great time!

Scouting encourages kids to have fun, make new friends, get involved in outdoor adventure, participate in community service and pursue fulfilling personal interests.

Watch the clip to see what Bear Grylls has to say about Scouting.


Scouts are not-for-profit organisations. Scouts pay a minimal fee to cover administration charges. Additional fees for camp's and outings may apply. Scout groups rely on community grants and fund-raising to cover the cost of equipment, hall maintenance and other needs.
