Founded in 1938, the Rotary Club of Bairnsdale has been actively supporting worthy local, national and international causes for 80 years.  


The club was at the forefront of moves to establish the first kindergarten and baby health centre in Bairnsdale, back in the 1940s. In the decades since we have been involved in a host of community projects including the installation of gazebos at Bairnsdale Cemetery and the provision of a much-used kiosk in Nicholson Street Mall.

We help fund the provision of specialist equipment for Bairnsdale Hospital and provide ongoing financial and administrative assistance to Rotary Centenary House. This is a cancer patient and family support facility in Traralgon benefiting East Gippsland residents.

We have provided fundraising and hands-on support for Flood & Bushfire relief and have been actively involved in a number of overseas initiatives. The Rotary Club of Bairnsdale also assists schools and students in relation to awards, scholarships and leadership camps.
