Access to the Camp is through a private road leading off Mt Keira Road, and the usual means of reaching the Camp is to leave the F6 Freeway from Sydney at the Figtree Exit (Southbound), turn left briefly towards Wollongong from the Freeway Exit, and then left up Mt Keira Road. The Camp is 4.7 km beyond the Mt Keira Post Office/General Store.

The Camp may also be reached from the Goulburn-Sydney Freeway (Hume Highway 31) by departing the Freeway at the Wollongong Exit, and turning off the Picton-Wollongong Road (88) at the Mt Keira Exit. The entrance to the Camp is 1.0 km past the Mt Keira Summit Exit.


At Mt Keira Scout Camp we will try to assist you to make the day as happy and memorable as possible. If you are not familiar with the campsite or would like to discuss your possible arrangements, we invite you to visit the camp during the following times when one of our wonderful volunteers will be available to show you around: Wednesdays between 9am and 3pm, Saturdays between 9am and 4pm or Sundays between 9am and 3pm.

Facilities Available for Weddings

The Bush Chapel, The Glen, The Lodge and/or The Lodge grounds. Chairs and/or a Sound System and/or microphones are available for ceremonies in The Glen or The Lodge. We can also supply a signing table and cloth at no extra charge. Please be aware that there is no power at The Chapel. The path to the chapel is uneven and may be difficult for elderly or disabled.

Wet Weather Alternatives

If your special event is to take place in the Main Camp Chapel or The Glen it is advisable to make alternative arrangements in case of unsuitable weather conditions (either a totally alternate venue or if available you may like to consider The Lodge at an additional, non-refundable cost) as it is a rainforest setting.

Parking for Guests or Participants

All guests are to park in the Camp car park and walk to the venue. Exemptions to this apply for a celebrant, photographer or caterer who may be given access to The Lodge or the Turning circle, subject to available parking. Aged, infirmed or disabled guests may be transported to The Lodge but wherever possible the vehicle is then to be returned to the main Camp car park. Members of the wedding party are permitted to park at The Lodge.



Consumption of alcohol in moderation is permitted near the Lodge or as pre-arranged. No alcohol to be walked through other areas.

Smoking: Recognising the legal implications regarding passive smoking, all buildings situated on all properties owned or controlled by the Scout Association have been declared “smoke free” areas.


Various options for receptions are available at the Camp, including formal or informal receptions in The Lodge, informal receptions on the Lodge surrounds or semi-formal or informal receptions in The Glen.  RECEPTIONS MUST CONCLUDE AND CLEANED UP BY 10pm (NO EXCEPTIONS).
