Our Club

The Rotary Club of Queenscliffe was chartered on 29 June 2005 and is a member of District 9780.  Our membership footprint covers the seaside towns of Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale in Victoria, Australia.

We are a small club comprised of active and retired men and women representing many vocations and with a variety of interests and a passion for serving others.

A majority of our financial support comes from fund-raising activities such as our annual Queenscliffe Bricks LEGO event and market BBQs. Over our 12 years, we have raised more than $130,000. These funds, and the time of members are used to support a range of local, national and international projects. 

Projects

Local projects supported on an ongoing basis include: books for newborns, RYDA (Rotary Youth Driver Awareness) road safety program, primary schools literacy competition, Point Lonsdale Christmas Tree lighting and community celebration of Christmas, visitor information rotunda at Queenscliff Harbour, Diversitat's refugee settlement support program, Rotary Bowelscan and Barwon Health's free patient transfer service.

Internationally we support End Polio Now - Rotary's international campaign to eradicate polio, Rotary Foundation, Wheelchair Foundation, Shelter Box, Interplast and a scholarship program for students from Udalo school in the Philippines.

Other projects we have supported in the past include Riding for the Disabled, Disabled Surfers Association, nursing chairs for Geelong Hospital's Special Care Nursery, CFA response vehicle, picnic tables for local primary schools, drug awareness forum, surfing for refugees, Queenscliff Lodge supported accommodation, Rotary exchange student, youth challenge course at Camp Wyuna, Mirabel Foundation, Indigenous Nursing Scholarships and Vietnam Autism Project.
