Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views
About Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly

The Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly has served the local community for more than 65 years and continues to be very active in the bayside area. Members of our club aspire to the Rotary International ideal  of ‘service above self’ and enjoy friendship and fellowship in this shared endeavour.

Our club is a happy and welcoming group with a growing membership of men and women who want to make a difference in their community. Our members range in age from their mid-20s onwards, and come from all backgrounds.

Some of our recent local projects include:

  • Replacement sail for Sailability Bayside program, also donated a boat 20 years ago
  • Family Fun Day (domestic violence awareness)
  • Completion of ANZAC memorial gardens in 17 local schools
  • Installation of a mobility hoist at the Clem Jones Centre

We also partner locally to support:

  • Australia Day big breakfast
  • ANZAC Day dawn breakfast for the Manly-Lota RSL Sub-branch
  • Rosies Friends on the Street – purchased and installed a kitchen
  • Meals on Wheels
  • International Women’s Day Breakfast

Our national programs include:

  • District Drought Relief Fund for communities in SW QLD. More recently this has also included assistance to flood affected communities in SE QLD
  • Shelter Boxes to provide emergency shelter and equipment
  • Australian youth and young adult programs include:
    • Rotary Youth Exchange Program
    • Rotary Youth Driver Awareness
    • Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
    • National Youth Science Forum and Experience

Internationally, our club supports and provides direct assistance to:

  • Polio Plus – polio eradication
  • Donations in kind – provision of medical, dental and educational supplies to neighbouring Pacific countries
  • Days for Girls – menstrual health equity for women and girls

Even COVID couldn’t put a dampener on us! While we could not meet at our regular location due to lockdowns, we bought take away each week to support and give free advertising for our local restaurants. We also put together some health and wellbeing kits for the many local businesses that we knew were doing it tough.

We rely entirely on our own efforts to raise funds to support programs and activities. Aside from BBQs and one-off fundraising activities, we host:

  • Fashion Night
  • Trivia Night
  • Santa installations in Wynnum and Manly CBDs

We are always looking for new ways we can support our local community. This year some examples are the  Wynnum Fringe Festival, food donations to support the homeless and the Moreton Bay Shellfish Reef Restoration project.

We also have many social events annually where members and their friends and family get together.

In short, we love to have fun while getting work done.

We welcome new members and you are invited to attend our Rotary Club meeting. We meet on Wednesday evenings at 6.00pm for dinner. If you are interested in making a difference in our local, national and global community while having fun, then please come and join us.

Meeting: Wednesday 6 for 6.30pm at 1 Bridge St, Wynnum 4178
