Platabeen Rovers

Take the Plunge – Try Rovers! (Age 18-26)

Rover Scouts opens the door to a world of adventure, excitement, mateship, challenge and achievement!

Rover Scouts is open to all young men and women aged 18 to 26. Anyone can become a Rover Scout - there's no need to have had any previous involvement with Scouting, or any prior outdoor activities experience.

Rovers are empowered with running their own activities right up to a national level. A local group of Rover Scouts is known as a "Crew" and every Crew is different, tailoring its activities to the requirements of its members. Crews vary in size from a handful of members to twenty or more. Most Crews meet weekly. The friends you make within this group will be lifelong!

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

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

The Rover Scout motto is a simple one - "Service". Rovering helps develop leadership abilities and an appreciation of the value of helping other people through service activities, both within Scouting and in the wider community.

There are Rover Scout Crews in all Australian States and Territories as well as many countries throughout the world, offering the opportunity to make great contacts when travelling and take part in international projects.

And he's done it!
We are incredible proud of our first ever Baden-Powell Award recipient, Andrew Booth!
Andrew has worked tirelessly to achieve this incredible award and did it all in less than 2 years.
Learning to weld, perfecting his skills in archery, becoming a Scout leader and most notably travelling to Thailand to work alongside elephants in a rescue sanctuary, Andrew is incredibly deserving and will be dearly missed as he officially ends his time in the crew.
