The Rotary Club of Cairns is the original Rotary Club in Cairns, established in February 1930.

Our club is comprised of men and women of all ages from varied business/professional backgrounds who share a passion for serving our community.

While you are here, you will see that we have many opportunities to get involved in our community projects, with the added benefit of networking and forming friendships with club members.

Whilst we embrace the traditional values of Rotary, we are also are an innovative club. Rotary is a bit like joining a gym – it’s your choice as to how much you want to be involved. But be warned, it’s easy to get hooked on helping others and having fun at the same time!
