Mackay Sunrise Rotary Club
We are situated in Mackay – Central Queensland (Just South of the incredible Whitsunday Islands and East of the enchanting Pioneer Valley and Eungella National Park)
A vibrant region of Australia, where coal, sugar and tourism are the regions major industries.
Chartered in 1992 we meet every Friday for breakfast, at the beautiful Ocean International Hotel.
We think it’s the best club in Mackay if you are a busy person that wants to get involved with Rotary and don’t have time to attend lunch or evening meetings, and wants to give back to the local community
Our biggest fundraiser was the annual Mayor’s Charity Ball held in May. It’s raised over $600,000 since it was first held in 2004 and was the premier event for Mackay. It’s been so successful that other towns have copied for example, Whitsundays, Moranbah and Gladstone. Which is a great thing for your club.
In 2019 we gave that fundraiser to Mackay Regional Council.
In 2021 we raised money via our Mummas Day Event, plus we held several Bunnings Sausage Sizzle events and we worked with Mackay Show Society on their successful XMAS Mega Markets
We belong to Rotary District 9560 which is located in Northern Australia and Timor-Leste compasses Maryborough in the South to Bamaga in the North and Darwin in the West, covering some 2.1 million square kilometres.
Consists of 84 clubs and approximately 1400 members
Visiting Rotarians are always welcome – check out the visitors info here
Our club has raised over $1 Million in it’s first 25 years and we are proud to say that the vast majority of the funds raised have been spent in Mackay helping needy individuals, organisations and projects.
In that time we have had a lot of fun and developed warm honest and sincere relationships amongst club members and our local community.
The club is now looking for new enthusiastic members for the next 25 years of our journey.
Come along and enjoy a meeting on us, come to a few social events as well and see what really happens in Rotary.
We’d love to meet you and will enjoy becoming friends with you as we have fun raising money for people that are less fortunate than us.
Email us today and we’ll be only too glad to organise a meeting for you to attend.
