Scouting on the Darling Downs commenced with the strong support of the religious denominations. Their ministers and halls were instrumental in creating a network of of dedicated businessmen who personally involved themselves and along with the ministers volunteered as scoutmasters as well as making equipment available for camps and rallies.
As secularism waned in society it also waned in the scouting movement, however there is still a strong connection between the Churches and the Scouting Movement. Support from the local businesses and families also waned as economic climates forced businesses to close and families to move away to more economic climates.
Scouting on the Darling Downs has endured and evolved over the years to become a strong influence in the community and helping teach many life skills and values while forming strong friendships that can last a lifetime.
