Frequently Asked Questions

When and Where?

Friday 30th March 2018 – Monday 2nd April 2018 at Rowallan Scout Camp, Riddells Creek

What do I need to bring?

The Hide is a camping and hiking activity, therefore you’ll need the usual clothing, tent, hike pack & food. The Hide will provide water at the overnight camp locations & stunt sites.

A detailed recommended equipment list has been published. Remember, you will be escaping from the overnight camp on Saturday and you will be able to bribe the guards & border patrols to bypass checkpoints.

Can I get public transport to the site?

You sure can! Hoadley Hide is at Rowallan Scout Camp, about 30 minutes from Sunbury. You can stay on the Thursday night in Sunbury at a hall we have arranged and we will assist you in getting to the site on the Friday.

Metro Trains have a regular service to Sunbury which can be used with your Myki.

How much?

$65 for Venturer Scouts, $45 for Adult Volunteers (Rovers, Leaders etc)

What does the Rover & Leader Fee cover?

As with the 2017 Hide, we are providing a lot more for the Rovers & Leaders who volunteer with the event. This includes:

  • Camping on site at Rowallan Scout Camp
  • Catering from Friday Lunch, through to Monday Breakfast
  • Provision of toilets & on-site showers at Rowallan Scout Camp

Due to the increased involvement and support we require, the Team has felt it is best to provide catering so crews & volunteers don’t lose time cooking or being tied up with trying to setup eating shelters or other services.
