The Rotary Club of Woy Woy is proud to celebrate 70 years of service to our local community and those in need across the nation and around the globe. 


The Rotary Club of Woy Woy was chartered on 7 June 1950 and is the third oldest Rotary club on the Central Coast. 
Some of our earlier projects included building the Girls Guides, Scouts and Sea Scouts Halls, Staples and Mt Ettymalong Lookouts, our local surf clubs, the swimming pool and a rock pool at South Umina, Anderson Memorial Park on the waterfront at Woy Woy, Koolewong Foreshore Reserve.

Fundraisers over time included 1st day covers for major event, a running event, an annual Melbourne Cup Trifecta which continues to this day and a Variety-style Bash - 'Woy Woy Rotary Romp’. The first ‘Romp’ in 1990 set off with 25 cars and 73 people to the Gulf of Carpentaria raising $28,000 for Central Coast Lifeline. The ‘Romp’ for Life Education raised $50,000. We’ve auctioned BBQ aprons signed by famous Australians and we still sell Christmas trees each year and hand out candles on Anzac Day. 
Our Club has raised significant funds for charity through our annual Opera in the Arboretum event which sadly was cancelled in 2020, due to the pandemic. We’ve supported regional towns who needed help following bushfires or during drought including Orange, Blackheath, Gloucester, Mudgee, Bundanoon and Canowindra. Our volunteers have participated in Rotary projects in Russia, Papua New Guinea, Cambodia, Vanuatu and Uganda where we currently support a women’s empowerment project.
Rotary Woy Woy has a membership ratio of 42% female, 58% male. Our members enjoy having fun while improving their lives and the lives of those they serve. Many life-long friendships have been forged while volunteering and doing good. We welcome new members to join us and put their service ideas into action.

Acts of service ...

“We believe that our acts of service, big and small, create opportunities for people who need our help. Rotary creates leadership opportunities and gives members the chance to travel the world to put their service ideas into action and make lifelong connections. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.” 

Rotary International President Holger Knaack
