The Rotary Club of Sydney was the first Rotary Club in New South Wales, chartered on 7 May 1921. Our Club was established, along with the Rotary Club of Melbourne, following a visit by representatives from North America who came to Australia with the purpose of establishing Rotary in Australia. There are now 1,164 Clubs established in Australia each of which can link its origins to either the Rotary Club of Melbourne or the Rotary Club of Sydney.
We meet every Tuesday at 12.30 pm for lunch, fellowship, networking and to listen to a stellar line-up of guest speakers.
In its 90 years the Rotary Club of Sydney has raised millions of dollars for local charities and has established what are now prominent enterprises.
In particular, the Rotary Club of Sydney founded the New South Wales Society for Crippled Children which is now known as the Northcott Society, established the Police & Citizens Boys' Clubs in New South Wales, established the Mt Eliza Executive School of Business now within the business school of the University of Melbourne and also established International House, a residential college for university students.

Visitors are most welcome to attend a weekly luncheon meeting.
