Rovers Events - Beyond the Horizon


Metropolitan Area Rover Ball (MARB)

A popular event among Victorian Rovers, the Metropolitan Area Rover Ball is an annual costume ball that showcases the extremes of Rover imaginations and creativity. With a different theme chosen each year, the Rover Regions take it in turns to organise the event, which always attracts big crowds. The night features a sit-down dinner, live entertainment, and a commemorative glass. With prizes for the best dressed male, female, couple and Crew, the night is one not to be missed. The theme for MARB is usually announced at Surfmoot during the evening entertainment on the Saturday Night.

Country Area Rover Ball (CARB)

A similar event to MARB, the CARB is organised by a country Region on rotation and provides an opportunity for city and country Rovers to experience the hospitality of a country location. The nights are themed and include entertainment and dinner. Prizes for various categories are awarded. Accommodation is usually available for visiting Rovers.

The Moot

Over 1000 Rovers from around the world will converge at Mafeking Rover Park for an opportunity unlike any other available to Rovers. A jam packed, fun yet relaxing week and a half spending time with your closes mates, making new friends from around the country and world and allow you to expand your horizons.


Surfmoot is Victoria’s longest running Rover events, starting back in 1931.

Surfmoot has something for everyone from swimming at the beach, to jelly wrestling, a waterslide or just sitting back and taking it easy. Surfmoot has always been run on the beach, starting its life on the banks of the Anglesea River and moving up the hill when Eumeralla Scout Camp opened its gates and has spent the rest of its life here, except for a few years at Phillip Island, but the main ideal of the weekend has never changed!

Surfmoot is all about you and what you want to do, if it’s getting down to the beach and relaxing, or getting up and running around all day doing on-site activities, it’s up to you!
Don’t forget the night time activities, with theme parties and some of Melbourne’s best cover bands on a big stage, with big sound... it's time to get loud!!!
