Queensland Rovers

Wonargo Revue opens in less than a week! Make sure to jump on their website to book your tickets now to support the amazingly talented Rovers performing in the show!⭐THE ORIGINS OF THE WONARGO REVUE⭐

The WONARGO REVUE is a family show presented by the Scout Association and is based on the concept by the late Ralph Reader CBE who, in 1932, originated a variety show called the London Gang Show. 👯‍♂️👯‍♀️👯

Ralph Reader was a professional choreographer who was involved with many shows staged on Broadway. He changed his career to concentrate on producing the London Gang Show which included composing all the songs and sketches over a period spanning 40 years.

The Brisbane Gang Show commenced in 1952 and was the first Gang Show in the world to be performed outside of London.

The Wonargo Revue has incorporated this Gang Show concept and has been an annual event since our first performance in 1972. Performing in the Northgate Virginia Scout Den, the Revue commenced at the request of some scouts in Wonargo District and has gained popularity ever since in providing a family, variety show of songs, hilarious sketches, dance routines, dazzling stage effects and costumes.💃🕺

⭐Make sure you book your tickets!⭐

Congratulations to Anita Gregory for being presented her wood badge tonight at the Annual Report Presentation. Anita has been a passionate and hard working rover from the start and we are excited to see the amazing things she will do with the new skills she’s picked up.

Further congratulations to Brendan Wilson and Daniel Boyd for completing their Diploma of Leadership and Management. Both have been highly active Rovers and been involved within running major events for the Branch.

Learn By Doing

Rover Scouts is open all young adults aged 18-25. It is all about adventure, excitement, challenge and achievement. No previous scouting experience required!

Rovers function in crews. A crew is a small collection of around 6 – 20 Rovers who engage in a self-managed weekly program. Crew members become mates for life!

A Rover Scout calendar may include challenging outdoor activities such as caving, sailing, four-wheel driving, hot-air ballooning and ski-touring. In addition the calendar is full of balls, harbour cruises, motor-sports, etc.
Moots are the pinnacle Rover event. A moot is a social gathering of Rovers from throughout a state, national or international with the focus of a few weeks of fun, adventure and sharing of life experiences. These too are run and managed by Rovers!

To become a part of the adventure check out our website or contact us!
Rover Scouts: Young enough to dream, old enough to do!
