The International Explorer Award is a belt and buckle that can be worn in place of the standard belt buckle on the uniform belt. This award can be earned by any registered member of Scouts Australia who travels to an officially recognised international Scouting event overseas and participates in at least two of the following activities:

Camping (minimum 1 night)
Training (minimum 1 complete day)
Attend at least 3 meetings (minimum 3 hours)
Upon their return from overseas, the candidate is required to complete at least three reports or presentations.
