Welcome to the Rotary Club of Cronulla

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world? Our club members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back.


Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.


We work with groups and organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.


Discover and celebrate diverse perspectives with a global organization.

Phil and Cheryl Whyte, Kiara Laws (their granddaughter), and Mark Ellis, attended Ronald McDonald House on 29 November to present a donation of goods valued at approximately $500 on behalf of the Rotary Club of Cronulla.
The donated goods included toys, food and other items for the pantry (e.g. glad wrap). Particular thanks are extended to Cheryl Whyte for making the purchases and to Kiara for providing expert advice in relation to toy selection.
All gifts were gratefully received.
On Saturday December 1, members and guests enjoyed a delightful lunchtime cruise on the waters of Port Hacking as we celebrated the coming festive season. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed good food served by attentive staff.
Well done Carol for organising a great afternoon.
Our meeting on Tuesday October 23 was our Pride of Workmanship presentation night, where we acknowledged a person who has displayed outstanding qualities in terms of approach, attitude, dedication and commitment to their job. The recipient was Mario Pierro, owner of Mario’s Haircraft at Cronulla for 30 years. He was nominated by Neil Newbould who has been a long-time client of Mario’s. Mario was delighted to receive the award and expressed his appreciation to the club. Congratulations Mario, we love being able to show our appreciation to those who go above and beyond in our community.
On October 20th 60 Rotarians and guests gathered at Cronulla RSL for a High Tea to raise funds to continue our work in Fiji.
 What a wonderful day everyone had. The atmosphere in the room was great and all present gave generously to support our fundraising efforts.
 Thank you to Carol Denison who led our International team on this fundraiser. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes but it all came together beautifully.
We are already planning our next trip to Fiji, and plan to freight a dentist chair kindly donated, updates to come in 2019.
A visit from the District Governor is always a great meeting and last week was not an exception. DG Sue Hayward and Mike were our guests and the night was fast paced with a little fun thrown in. Sue reminded us of several District projects but emphasized the many ways we can help out our country cousins during this prolonged drought.
The focus of our meeting on Tuesday June 26 was the changeover of President from Neil Newbould to Carmen Stein. Neil gave us a summary of our achievements during his year, and Carmen outlined where her main focus will be this year, and introduced her Board. A highlight of the evening was the presentation of a 2 sapphire PHF to Hal Niemeyer recognising his outstanding service to the club. It was fitting the award was made on the day that Hal & Sigrid celebrated their joint birthday.
On a beautiful sunny day last Saturday, the District 9675 Changeover was held at St George Motor Boat Club where outgoing DG Stephen Britten handed over the reins to DGE Sue Hayward. Our club was well represented with 9 representatives attending. It was a great day of fellowship and award presentations and the highlight for Cronulla Rotary was receiving from Stephen Britten the award for the Best International Project.

Another very successful golf day was held on Monday 19 February 2018. 

The event raises money for Motor Neurone Disease research. Motor neurone disorders (MND) are one of the most rapidly-progressive age-related diseases known to man. There is no known cure and no effective treatment for MND. Each day two Australian people die from MND. 

The golf day event helps us sponsor PHD scholarships. Dr. Dharmadasa is a Neurologist who recently completed her Advanced Training in Neurology through the Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Alfred Hospital, Victoria.  Through this time she cultivated a particular interest in motor neurone disease, and is now commencing a PhD in this area under Professor Matthew Kiernan, University of Sydney, Co-funded by The Rotary Club of Cronulla.

Numbers were up again this year at the annual Pre-WWll Vintage Car and Bike Show. In the 8 hours of the show it is estimated 25,000 people came through the mall to see Pre-WWII machines, many of which were well over 100 years old.
The event raises much needed funds for the Sylvanvale Kids Club. The Kids Club is vital to the Sutherland Shire and surrounding communities. Sylvanvale Kids Club ensures that school aged children with disabilities are cared for after school, during school holidays and on weekends. The event would not be a success if it was not for support from the Sutherland Shire Council, the Sylvanvale Foundation and Cronulla Rotary members.
Ralf Zuke, president of the Rotary Club of Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA, will complete Ralph’s Rickshaw Ride for Polio from St. Louis, Missouri, USA to the Rotary International Convention in Toronto, Canada. This ride will last 22 days with the goal to raise $22,000. Each day is in honor of one of the preventable cases of polio in 2017.
