The Australian Venture is an event for Australian Venture Scouts. It is their equivalent of a Jamboree, but for Venturers there is a lot more freedom and latitude in what they do. There is a number of on site activities and also an off site expedition, normally totaling about 12 days long.

The next Australian Venture is in Perth, Western Australia, 2009. It will be held at Fairbridge Village, an hour south of Perth near Pinjarra, Western Australia. The theme for this Venture is "Escape to Venture". It will be the 13th Venture in Australia.
