Pop star Jessica Mauboy hits M'boro to sing for the scouts
SINGER Jessica Mauboy is the latest pop star to jet into the Fraser Coast to perform at the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree.
The star gave a preview performance and met with excited young scouts at the Jamboree radio station on Tuesday afternoon before appearing on the main stage on Tuesday night.
Ms Mauboy said she was amazed by the set-up for the jamboree and said she might give the onsite activities such as abseiling or rock-climbing a go before the concert.
"Hopefully we'll sneak by there and get a bit of a turn," Ms Mauboy said.
The performer managed to sneak in a walk on the beach at Hervey Bay on Tuesday before heading to the scouts, but won't be able to see any other Fraser Coast sites before she flies out this morning.
She will head straight to the United States from Hervey Bay to appear at the G'Day USA events and Los Angeles and New York.
Singers Reece Mastin, Tim-o-matic, comedian Josh Thomas and magician Consentino have also performed for the scouts.
