Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise Rotary

Message from our President 

I am continually amazed at the reach of the Rotary clubs in supporting local, regional, countrywide and international aid programs. Everything from supporting the homeless in the Blue Mountains, to setting up computer systems in classrooms in Vanuatu and eliminating polio throughout the world.

The interesting thing about Rotary is that each club is self-governing and part of a national and international group.  Each club has a different focus, one thing we all have in common is we are a leadership organisation, made up of local citizens and businesses. We, at Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise, meet regularly for breakfast, both online and face to face, get to know each other and through that, we are able to get things done in our community, region and internationally.

As a member, you are welcomed at any Rotary club throughout the world. You will have the opportunity to be involved with our community, working on local projects and networking with our club members and other Rotarians.  Members play a crucial role in how our club achieves our community goals. Whilst we hold weekly meetings, your attendance is valued and discretionary. We support the Rotary Foundation which is our charity that enables us to “do good in the world” and provide funds in the form of grants for our community projects.

As I enter my second term as President of this Club, we can be very proud - we are flexible, sociable and respectful - that is how we get things done. We all have skills and talent and acquire more skills as we develop through Rotary. I can confidently say to our community that we will be there for them in 2021.

Youth Programs

Every year, thousands of talented and dedicated young people, ages 12-30, have an incredible experience in a Youth Services program. From leadership and experiential learning, these programs can change a young persons life.

Most community programs need not only our time and attention but they need funds. Our Club like most Rotary clubs are out there fundraising for a specific purpose or cause. Click here to find out more about some of our fundraisers.


The members and friends of Upper Blue Rotary are a committed group of men and women who manage and implement a range of projects benefiting our community, both locally and overseas. These projects often start with an idea from an individual.

Our Club has made a longterm commitment to helping the homeless in the Blue Mountains. We have several events planned over the next year or so. One coming up on 26th September is our online Helping the Homeless Trivia Night.  We hope you will join us for this event. Heaps of fun, using ZOOM and Kahoot but with a serious purpose. The cost is $20pp although feel free to donate more if you wish. Get a team going, in the comfort of your home, and invite your friends and family to participate.

2019-20 Bushfires Appeal

We have all seen the disastrous fires that have erupted, taking lives as well as destroying hundreds of homes, properties and the environment across Australia.

Rotary is once again taking the lead and looking to provide support for families in need. To this end several Rotary Districts and Clubs have established projects which are ready and able to accept donations from you. All of those projects can apply for funds from this appeal.

You can be assured any donation to this Appeal will be used for Rotary based projects for fire fighting and recovery efforts. Our Club is pleased to be associated with this Appeal.
