Hello there and welcome to our wonderful and vibrant Rotary Club.
We are to the south east of Melbourne, Victoria, about 18km from the city, meeting each Wednesday morning, currently on Zoom, details here.
We number 37 active members and our main Club activity and fundraiser is the running of the Bentleigh Sunday Market.
We are very proud of the contribution we make to our local communities of Glen Eira and Kingston, and to the wider world, either directly or because we are part of the wonderful worldwide organisation of Rotary.
If you are at all interested in giving a little back to your community and making new friends and being part of Rotary, please contact us or join us at one of our weekly meetings. You will be made to feel very welcome.

The Supurunda Water Supply Project in Papua New Guinea has been a successful example of how Rotary is advancing peace and providing clean water and sanitation.
by Rotary Down Under
In 2018, eight villages inhabited by five cultural groups agreed to put aside past conflicts so they could enjoy the benefits of a safe, clean water supply. The resulting water system is now a common and enduring thread that, no matter what else happens, will unite them and will be protected by them for everyone to enjoy into the future.
