Vic Gathering is an event run specifically for Victorian Venturers and Guides. The objective of the Gathering is to provide a fun weekend to help the Venturers, Guides, Rovers and Leaders unwind at the end of a busy year. Venturers also attend from other states of Australia. Venturers and Guides are aged between fourteen and eighteen years.
Vic Gathering is run by the Vic Gathering Committee, with support from Leaders and Rovers from across the State. VG takes place on the first weekend of December each year.
VG is a standing camp with booking in commencing at 6.00 pm Friday and most activities getting under way by 9.30 pm. Venturers and Guides are generally required to be self-sufficient for the weekend, however a canteen is provided for those who do not wish to prepare their own meals.
Normally we have approximately 600 to 800 Venturers and Guides, plus a further 200 Rovers and Leaders on-site for the weekend.
The venue of the Gathering changes every two years.
VG2016 is at Bay Park, Mount Martha
Bay Park is about 85km south east of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula.
The gates open at 6.00 pm on the Friday night, no earlier! Some activities, canteen and some displays will start then and finish at 11.30am on Sunday morning. Final parade is on Sunday at 12.30 pm.
Some of the activities that may be on-site include: abseiling, archery, 500 cards, frat tents, iron person event, water activities, films/videos and many more. See the Activities page for the full list. Some activities need to be pre-booked, so make sure you get in quick!
This is a fantastic way to finish the year with a fun-packed weekend of activities, socialising and meeting new and old friends.
