Eugene Duff remembers the plumbing at this Jamboree consisted of large PVC pipes with taps fitted along the pipe. The water pressure was very high. One afternoon, whilst showering and he was all covered in soap suds, one of the taps blew out of the pipes. In the quarter of an hour it took to fix the tap, half the camp had come to look at the white Santa.
Prior to the 14th Australian Jamboree at Cataract Scout Park, NSW it was decided to try out some new ideas from lessons learned at the 13th Australian Jamboree.

At this camp it was decided to have a rest day half way through the Jamboree, so all the Scouts would recuperate, clean up and write a letter home. The Troop adjacent to Kai Kai became bored and dug a mud-wrestling pit in the nature strip between the sub-camps. What followed is best described as a riot. About 200 Scouts attracted by the noise came running through camp lines, through fences etc. Even darkness didn't slow them down - they gathered torches to light the area. Eventually the fighting was stopped and it was apparently reported in the Jamboree newspaper as "an example of Scouts using their initiative."
