Nighthawk 2020 is CANCELLED due to COVID-19

Unfortunately due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia, we have regretfully had to cancel Operation Nighthawk for 2020.

We hope to see you all back at the Goombungee showgrounds in 2021!

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.
