This pricing is for Service Leaders (not directly responsible for youth) and Rovers. Places for Service Leaders & Rovers within the Australian Contingent are very limited. You should discuss your proposed application for a service leader position with the Contingent Leader before applying.
Service Leaders may be assigned to an expedition during the Phase 1 component of the Venture but generally do not participate in the activities of the Expedition and as such do not pay an expedition fee.

Venture: Return flights from Australia to New Zealand, comprehensive travel insurance, all transfers, all meals, Venture fees, merchandise including 2 polo shirts, name bar, Australian International Scarf, bag and other goodies. Australian Contingent’s Post Tour including 2 nights staying at Waikato University in Hamilton, Maori Cultural Experience and theme park adventure.

There are some additional costs you need to account for including obtaining a passport if you don’t already have one (see www.passports.gov.au for details), your expedition fee which will be based on the choices you make, any spending money for souvenirs or incidental items (you won’t need much), and there will be some optional activities during Phase 2 of the Venture and the Pre Tour.
You will also need to obtain a new, unused tent either from the Contingent or to bring with you. Getting used tents through New Zealand customs is very difficult and time consuming due to their strict quarantine policies.
