Queensland Rovers

Tonight is Jemma’s final night as our Queensland Branch Rover Chair and what a whirl her journey has been! Thankyou Jemma for an amazing year and leading us towards our goals. Your compassion and care for rovers has shone through during your term and the exec could not have done nearly as great a job without you! Brendan has some big red shoes to fill now and we can’t wait to see what he’ll achieve in the coming year! ... See MoreSee Less

We, the rovers of Queensland, would like to send out a huge and heartfelt thankyou to all the healthcare workers in our community who are on the front line of Coronavirus ready to help us stay safe! We’d also love to thank the amazing teachers, supermarket workers and other essential workers who keep our world running during this difficult time. We’re going to get through this together and will come out the other side strong. Please stay safe all Rovers and try to make the most of your time in isolation!

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!
