First aid is a qualification that all adult members of Scouts NSW members should look to attain. This qualification provides safety for all along with allowing the widest range of activities to provided. All Adventurous Activities qualifications require members to have a current HLTAID011 Provide First Aid qualification and/or a Wilderness First Aid qualification.

Youth members will need for Stage 5 in their OAS and prior to their adventurous journey a HLTAID011 Provide First Aid qualification.

Throughout the year various providers run first aid courses for Scouts NSW members. For a list of Registered Training Organisations approved to deliver HLTAID011 – Provide First Aid training, please go to this link on

Bara Brui Driveway

Public transport is available. 

Catch a bus from the city (route 194 – disembark at Eastern Arterial Rd before Eucalyptus St) or from Gordon railway station (route 582 – disembark at 21a Hunter Ave). Check maps so you know where the bus stop is in relation to the Barra Brui driveway in Hunter Street.

How to find Barra Brui Scout Hall using what3words and Google Maps 

Because it is on Crown Land, this training venue does not have a street number. Instead, use what3words to find your way to training events.

Load the free what3words app onto your smart device. Open up the app and play around for a bit – you don’t want to learn how what3words works when you are already on the road to St Ives. 

Enter the what3words address pints.makes.atomic into the app, then tap ‘Navigate’ and select ‘Google Maps’ to open the location in Google Maps. These three words will take you to the gate at the top of the Barra Brui driveway in Hunter Ave, St Ives.  

If you arrive and the gate is locked, either park at the top and walk down the driveway (not the pipeline track), or wait for someone to arrive with a key 

Once you are through the gate, you then need to find the right hall. The what3words location for the training venue is ruby.lift.urgent. Barra Brui is the second hall at the very end of the driveway.
