Rovers, formerly Rover Scouts, is the fifth and final section of Scouts Australia. Rovers are aged between 17 and 26 and are organised into local Crews, which can be associated with a Scout Group or operate as a stand-alone Crew. Rovers are actively encouraged to become better citizens through taking part in Scouts Australia's nationally accredited training programs, developing leadership skills, participating in outdoor activities, attending national and international events, providing service to the community and generally building their life skills.

This collection represents the organisation and activities of the Lands End Rover Crew from 1982 to 2003. It includes minutes of Crew meetings, financial records, programs and activities including moots, the Gang Show and Jamborees, some correspondence, and a photographic record of activities.
