Rotary in Australi

In Australia there are some  30,000 Rotarians belonging to one of the 1100 Clubs nationally. Each Club is  led by a Club President and supported internally by a number of Club office holders. The position of President is rotated every July, providing ample opportunities for Rotarians to step up and gain leadership experience. Clubs operate independently, but often come together to work on joint projects and celebrate big events.

Each Club belongs to one of 21 Rotary Districts in Australia with the Districts being  geographically defined and sometimes cross state and even international borders. The head of the Rotary District is the District Governor.  


Internationally there are 34 Zones covering designated countries and Districts. Australia's is in Zone 8, which includes the Oceanic nations of Australia, New Zealand, East Timor and Papua New Guinea.

And of course every one of the 1.2 million Rotarians is  dedicated to making the world a better place through promotion of peace, cultural understanding and service to the community alongside other like-minded community and business leaders.

Rotary International is led by the Rotary International President.
