Nighthawk 2021 is AT CAPACITY. Entries are CLOSED!

Unfortunately due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia, we have had to severely overhaul how this event will be run and how it will comply with COVID safe measures. Please be aware of some new Terms and Conditions. These are available on the button below and the signup page.

Since its inception in 1982, Operation Nighthawk has grown to be the largest Scouting Youth activity, other than Jamborees, in Queensland. It is supported by Scouts and Venturer Scouts from Queensland and Nothern NSW. It is an overnight hike packed with activity bases in the bush for both Scouts and Venturer Scouts.

At each of the bases Leadership and Technical Skills are scored on a variety of different tasks, these may include Mapping, First Aid and Scouting Skills.

In 2019 Operation Nighthawk was entered in the Outdoors Queensland Awards and won! This wouldn’t have been possible without your long term support of our event. Thank you for your support and hope to continue holding our award winning event for years to come.
