Diamantina Scout Group
Diamantina Scout Group is located in Kaleen, Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and has the unique distinction of being only one of two groups in the ACT to have a single colour for the Group scarf - Orange.
Kaleen is one of the largest suburbs of the Belconnen Town region in ACT and is centrally located between Canberra City, Belconnen Town Centre and the growing town centre of Gungahlin. The suburb is approximately 30 years old and is entering its second growth cycle as the senior children marry, retired couples sell their larger houses and younger families move in.
