The Eastern Shore Rover crew first formed early in 2001 with the amalgamation of the Clarence District and Lindisfarne Rover crews. In the early inception the crew averaged 30 recorded members each year, with such a large crew neither original dens of the amalgamated crews could house the entire crew, therefore early meetings were held in the Bellerive yacht club. Since 2001 the crew has continued to have a strong presence within the scouting community of the eastern shore and southern Tasmanian, running and participating in many scouting and rover events while maintaining strong numbers of both knighted and squired rovers. Some highlights within the crews young history are; winning the Rover long distance rowing 8 out of the 16 since the crews inception and taking a crew and race vehicle to the annual Mudbash event in Victoria in 2016.
The Eastern Shore Rover Crew was formed in the early months of 2001. It is now the only rover crew in the Clarence District as Lindisfarne Rovers merged with the crew during its inception.
