History

Bramble Bay district is named after a ship the HMS Bramble which was commandeered by Captain Charles Yule who carried out coastal survey work of Moreton Bay and Stradbrooke Island to chart a safe northern passage around 1846. 

The first scouting use of the name “Bramble Bay” emerged when “Bramble Bay Scout Group” was established at St. Patrick’s College, Shorncliffe in 1964. The Group joined the Pine Rivers District which was in existence at the time [1].  Bramble Bay district was established in 1989, and was created out of a merger of parts of Dulandella district and Pine Rivers district.
