Dandenong Police Paddocks - Narree Worran Precinct


Photos of July 16, 2017, on a 2 km exploration of part of the site of the 7th Australian National Scout Jamboree, which was held in Police Paddocks in January 1965. Nothing remains of the Jamboree - the land is now overgrown with blackberries, thistles, weeds and trees. This area was used for the Camp Shopping Area, Interstate Contingent Headquarters, HQ Subcamp no. 7, the Lost Cubs Hut, and the Camp Radio Transmitter. 

No Cubs were found!

The former Shopping Area is now the Brady Rd Picnic Ground.

A Geodetic Survey Marker is located adjacent to the plcnic ground. This is designated PM 264, at an altitude of 54 m above sea level.
