- For the first time, the opening of an Australian Jamboree would be broadcast live via the Internet so that parents, family and friends could join in and watch from home.
- Walking across the huge campsite, the scouts and leaders assembled in front of the large Arena.
- Parents and scouts that could not attend watched in from home.
- And then it was showtime!

- We saw a Funky music video made from a mashup of dance clips submitted across Australia. We heard some inspiring speaches, together saluted the flag and sang our national anthem.
