Service Above Self... Rotary Club of Bellingen is more than just a service club -– we are a community. Our club is made up of leaders from all walks of life who are committed to making a difference in the world. For over seven decades, we have been serving our local community, building relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime. Our members are dedicated to living the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self," and we welcome anyone who shares that same passion.

Our Club was formed on December 29, 1953, primarily to raise funds through community work for local, national, and international good causes.  Through the shared skills of members, councillors, and other community leaders including special "Friends of Rotary," the aim was and still is to improve the lives of people within the valley and the seaboard, whilst also forging long lasting relationships in our communites and beyond. Several of our  signature projects meet the top two priorities of local residents, as discovered by Bellingen Shire Council's community consultation survey to define our "Spirit of Place" – Those priorities are to support our unique natural environment and to support education.


...Through friendship, fellowship, service & fundraising we seek to improve

our local and international communities, and to enhance the lives of others.
