The Rotary Club of Kingston welcomes you.

Kingston Tasmania, 7050

 Meeting at the Kingborough Bowls Club on Mondays 6:30 pm for 7 pm start.




Club and district meetings

In the near term, Rotary International recommends that districts and Rotary and Rotaract clubs meet virtually, cancel or postpone meetings or events following the advice of national and local health officials. Please continue to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization and your national, regional, or local health authorities to protect your health and safety. If feasible, conduct meetings online or by phone.

Closely examine your personal circumstances, including any health issues, when you consider travel and participation in events.

We cannot know quite yet what path this virus will take. We know we can play a role to help “flatten the curve,” reducing the number of cases in the short term to allow our health systems to address this issue. If the collective global effort helps bring the situation under control, then we hope to re-embrace our core values at the May Club meetings.  the Kingston Beach fun run and Walk will not occur this May in following directive to cancel gatherings of 500 or more.

In the meantime, this is an opportunity for us to demonstrate that Rotary Connects the World in innovative ways. We should be closely following the advice of the WHO and local health authorities. Again, this includes canceling Rotary club events and meetings in the short term to reduce unnecessary interactions that could cause infections. We can put a greater emphasis on the work we do in our communities by helping our less fortunate neighbors cope with the effects of isolation and fear, or by supporting our health authorities to address this situation.

We are dealing with this situation in real time. Please visit our COVID-19 response page at for ongoing updates.

This is an unprecedented challenge for nearly all of us. But it is also an opportunity for Rotary members to find new, meaningful ways to lead individuals and communities to connect and do good in the world.

We welcome input via email to our club and through our Rotary Club of Kingston facebook Page   

we continue to work to support our Community and action of Global and Australia wide care.

It's easy to feel that there's not much we, as individuals, can do to help.

But every dollar that can be put toward helping others can help in significant ways.

Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) Bushfire appeals is taking donations and the funds raised will go directly where they're needed most.

You can donate here

Donations to RAWCS are Tax Deductible and funds will be utilised in the Community by Rotary Clubs where needed.

A Rotary Tasmania Callout

A Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (Managed by the Rotary Australia World Community Service) has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration and has been listed as a Charitable Fund so we can accept tax deductible donations from individuals or organisations.

RAWCS has established an appeal which commenced accepting donations from 1 October 2018 on the RAWCS website home page. These funds will go directly to the eight Rotary District drought relief project registered with RAWCS. These projects cover the whole of the drought declared area west of the Great Dividing Range, from Far North Queensland to Victoria. Two of the Rotary District drought projects have been operating since 2014 in Central Queensland and Southern Queensland. The six new drought projects have been modeled on the success of these two projects. The emphasis is on mental health, particularly the factors associated with the high suicide rate in drought impacted areas. “Wellbeing rather than Welfare” is the driver in these eight Rotary projects, by direct contact and financial support, and involvement together through a range of community activities of those affected.

Tasmania Rotary Clubs are asked to consider donating to the new RAWCS appeal, or direct to one of the eight RAWCS drought projects. Full details are available on RAWCS homepage.
