About Us

Rotary Club of Mosman

Our club has been a leading service organisation on the North Shore of Sydney since it was formed over 60 years ago. We are completing sixty years on 1st January 2021.

Members contribute their time, energy and passion to sustainable, long term projects both within Australia and across the globe. Each project has its own specific humanitarian aims but common to all is a desire to make the world a better place. Examples include disease prevention and treatment, disaster relief, water and sanitation, etc.
