Mafeking Rover Park - Home of The Moot

Set in the picturesque Victorian highlands, Mafeking Rover Park is a 320-acre property owned and managed by Victorian Rovers.

In the build up to The Moot in 2016-17, the Mafeking Committee of Management are developing a number of exciting projects. Keep your eyes out for developments on The Moot website and Facebook page. Mafeking has a special place in the heart of all Victorian Rovers and we are excited to share our wonderful site with you as part of The Moot.

History

The site was purchased in October 1992 as a new and permanent home for Mudbash, Victorian Rovers’ annual racing event. The site was also the home of the last national moot hosted in Victoria – Yea Moot (1998-99).

As the home of these events, Mafeking was developed over a number of years and now includes several onsite facilities including the Harold Gardiner Memorial Hall, 4 bunkhouses, 3 large storage and services sheds, a toilet block and two picnic shelters.

Permanent onsite activities include:

  • A commando course
  • Archery field
  • 9-hole bush golf course
  • BMX track
  • Lake Surfmoot
  • Abseiling tower

With large open expanses, sections of native bush land and the slopes of Mt Quafftumbla groups are able to run a wide-variety of onsite activities and are limited only by their imagination!

Mafeking has a huge variety of things to offer. You can spend your time partying with other event participants or watching racecars fly around the tracks. If you’re looking for something more relaxed and peaceful you can take some time out to enjoy the peace and serenity of the bush chapel or watch the sunset from the top of Mt Quafftumbla.
