History of District

Geelong Rivers came into existence on May 1st 1995 with the merging of Moorabool and Corio Districts

The aspects of the design are as follows;

The three major rivers bounding the District Moorabool, Barwon and Little River, including Hovells Creek, the permanent well watered district being one of the reasons the early settlers came to the district.

The golden plains representing grazing, and agriculture. The mountains of the Brisbane Ranges and the You Yangs. The ship and the bay representing trade commerce and the early explorers. The curlew representing the bird and animal life; the “curlew” in one of the aboriginal   dialects is called “Moorabool”. The Scout Emblem and the name of the district.

This badge was designed by Mr Bill Fitzgerald, Scout Leader at Moorabool Scout group.

  • Australia Scout Fellowship - Geelong Rivers

    AUSTRALIAN SCOUT FELLOWSHIP

    The Fellowship is the opportunity to remain in or re-join the Scout Association of Australia, Victorian Branch and so be eligible to participate in scout events with other present and former members. Membership of the ASF is automatically offered to Certificated Leaders who wish membership upon the relinquishment of their Certificate and to former or “Booted” Rovers. New applicants must be willing to affirm or re-affirm the Scout Promise, submit for a Police Check and hold a current Working with Children Card pursuant to the Working with Children Act 2005.

    It is the reasonable expectation of the Scout Association that members of the ASF should be willing to actively promote the virtues of Scouting among their associates and friends and with persons of influence in the wider community.

    Essentially, the Fellowship is a fraternity of former leaders who wish to remain in contact and to mix socially, both formally and informally, with former colleagues.
