Australian Scout magazine is Australia's leading Scouting magazine and one of the oldest in the world. It is published twice each school term - eight times a year. Four issues of the printed magazine go to all subscribers and Victorian Scouting families at the start of each school term. The four mid-term issues go only to subscribers and adults in Scouting in Victoria. The magazine includes news and features about Scouting, program ideas, humour, and local photo stories. Australian Scout has been published by Scouts Victoria since 1927. It follows a series of earlier publications which began in 1909.
