Challenging outdoor activities such as bush walking, canoeing, sailing, caving, ski-touring, canyoning, four-wheel driving, rock-climbing and scuba diving all form an important part of a Rover's calendar.

Rovers is the oldest youth section in the Scouting Movement, for people between 18 and 25 years old. Rovers provides young people a balance of fun, adventure, exploration and service. A Rover may become involved in organising a simple weekend away for just a few people, a major event involving thousands of participants, or anything in between!

Social activities such as balls, bush dances, harbour cruises, nights out, car rallies and "Moots" (gatherings of Rovers on a local, national and sometimes international level) also feature on an active Rover's program.

A group of Rovers is known as a "Rover Crew". Each Rover Crew is different, consisting of anywhere from a handful of members to as many as 50. Most crews meet weekly. A Crew's activities are planned and run by the Rovers themselves - which means they are tailored to the requirements and interests of members. There are plenty of opportunities to develop personal abilities, learn new skills and make lifelong friends!


“Rovers has opened so many doors for me. I've travelled overseas, gained skills in project management and served my community.”
