What is Surfmoot?
Surfmoot is one of Victoria’s longest running Rover events, starting back in 1931.
Surfmoot has something for everyone from swimming at the beach, to jelly wrestling, watermelon rugby, 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 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-time to get loud!!!
When is Surfmoot?
Surfmoot runs over the Australia Day long weekend, or over the weekend closest to Australia Day when there's no long weekend.
Where is Surfmoot?
Surfmoot is held at Eumeralla Scout Camp, located just 1 1⁄2 hours drive from Melbourne’s CBD right on the Great Ocean Road, with its spectacular ocean and bushland views and just 3 minutes drive from the exclusive sea change town of Anglesea.

How to Get to Surfmoot?
Driving to Surfmoot is easy as the Great Ocean Road comes straight past the front gate of Eumeralla!
Cars will be parked in a well lit and secure car park for the weekend, so all movement off-site (e.g. to Anglesea and Torquay) will be via our Surfmoot Courtesy Buses where possible.
If you are in Melbourne, trains run from Melbourne (Southern Cross Station) to Geelong regularly, from the station buses run down the coast to the site.
If you are coming from interstate the best airport to fly into is Avalon as it’s just out of Geelong, the closest major centre to Anglesea. There is a bus service that runs from Avalon to Geelong and from there a bus runs down the Great Ocean Road to Anglesea
Surfmoot is a camping weekend so bring your tent and all you need for a weekend of fun in the sun!
There are all the required services onsite; portaloos, toilet trailer and a shower trailer, car parking, PA and lots of friendly Victorian Rovers to help out if you need it!
There will be a canteen, serving lots of tasty hot and cold food; a menu will be up on the website so check back soon.
As always there will be a bar, and we will have a list of what the bar will be offering soon on the website.
Anglesea is the nearest town to Surfmoot and has everything you will need from hardware to fuel.
