We are the oldest established Rotary Club in the South Burnett Region of Queensland. 

We are constantly wanting to make positive changes in the lives of our communities and those further afield.
Our club members are dedicated individuals who share a common passion for community service and fellowship.
Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group of people who all share a common urge to give back to others, those things we would want for ourselves yourself.
 
So, why don't you come along and help make a difference to others?
 
 

 
 
 
 
Our movie night this year features the funny and factual movie The Lost King
And once again all the funds raised through these social events will be donated to the Rotary Foundation so as to be able to continue doing good in the world

When the youth of our community come together to do good in the world, we feel a sense of hope for and admiration knowing that the future is looking brighter.
Every day we read, see and hear about nothing but the news of pain and suffering in the world at large. Now days good news seems to be a rare and precious commodity indeed.
But then we hear of people wanting to help others. Young people, saying to the word "we can help. We will help".
They are the youth that come together and form an INTERACT club in order to help others.
 
 
 
The fundamental fund raiser for Rotary Clubs around the world must be the humble barbeque.
 
In so many places around the nation, so many people gather around the barbeque plate and enjoy the fruits of their labours while still enjoying the fellowship that flows naturally from this simple event. 
And so it was, at a recent event here in Kingaroy. Catering to hungry motor cyclists at a special educational event
 

Every Year at this time, RYPEN is run for school students who have shown a willingness to expand their life experiences and make new friends.

This year was no different
 

RYPEN is a residential weekend long program delivering leadership training for 14 - 16 years olds. Over the course of the program we focus on building Resilience, Communication, Teamwork, Responsibility of Self, Habit Formation, Community Advocacy, Trust and Mindfulness Skills

RYPEN is an incredibly valuable and unique experience for the participants which allows them to engage with like-minded people, discover their values and grow their communication and leadership skills, all whilst having fun!

The Sausage sizzles, lets do the right thing.
 
 
There wouldn’t be a Australian Rotarian alive today that hasn’t been introduced to the art of the Sausage sizzle. It’s as synonymous with the Rotary brand as the golden gearwheel. The the aroma of onions and sausages frying wafting  on the breeze attracts people from far and wide. It simply cannot be ignored!
 
Every Weekend, all over this wonderful nation of ours, miles of sausages and truck loads of onions are brought together at the altars of the humble barbecue and are prepared and cooked to just the right degree of delicious perfection and offered up to our customers. To them we offered multiple choices of tomato, barbecue, mustered or Sweet Chilli sauces. Singularly or collectively to be added to the master piece that is the barbecued sausage on fresh bread smothered in caramelised onions
