Brief Summary:
Waratah is the annual GWS Region Venturer Actviity, held in mid-November of each year. Its aim is to provide participants with a large multifaceted problem that requires Venturer Scouts to use a wide variety of Scouting Skills to solve. It is also a chance for participants to socialise in a unique and fun-filled environment. Billed as the Challenge of a Lifetime, Waratah is built up from the ground each year and provides Venturer Scouts with unique activities that they may not experience in their day to day lives. It also promotes a vision of teamwork and inclusion both through its program . Over the last several years, Waratahs following has grown significantly and now forms a major feature of the GWS Venturers Calendar.

Additional Information

This event is subject to approval by Scouts NSW. Applications must be submitted by the closing date, but fees for this years event are payable on the day.

This year COVID-19 has stopped our plans for a 15th Anniversary Extravaganza, but we love Waratah so much, we have created and are proud to bring to you 'Waratah 2020: The COVID-19 Edition'! Following similarly to Waratah's 2013 theme of 'The Amazing Race', The COVID-19 Edition will have you competing to see who is Waratah's next reigning champion.

In order to comply with the new COVID guidelines, the team has created and minimized Waratah into a single-day event. Through this decision, we are still able to offer you the same Waratah experience you've grown to love over these past 15 years. Waratah 2020: The COVID-19 Edition brings you activities ranging in uniqueness with the added bonus of a few classics as well as offering multi-faceted problems that will test Venturers on their teamwork skills as well as their ability to solve perplexing challenges under extreme circumstances. 

Whilst venturing throughout Western Sydney, Venturers are guaranteed to walk away from Waratah with great experiences, new and ever-lasting memories on top of, the satisfaction of having achieved the Challenge of a Lifetime. 

Sadly, due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to accept any out of region applicants or scout applicants. But hopefully, in the future, we look forward to seeing our out of region friends and family once more.

So what are you waiting for? Register your team today to see if YOU're team is Waratahs next champion!
