Welcome to the Rotary Club of Morialta

We are a welcoming, supportive, inclusive, and fun-loving club, involved in a wide range of projects both locally and internationally - including our landmark midwifery training project in Papua New Guinea. We are an extremely active club - on a weekly basis, you will find our members building connections at our community workshop in Athelstone, operating the kiosk with a smile at the popular Thorndon Park Reserve, serving snags at community events, delivering community projects such as our Dementia Cafe, working with local schools to provide training and scholarships - and LOTS more besides.

 

We meet weekly in Magill and gather regularly for fellowship. Our club welcomes volunteers and new members who want to get involved in community and have some fun along the way.

Morialta is located in Adelaide's eastern suburbs, at the foot of the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The word 'Morialta' comes from the Kaurna word Mariyartala with Mari meaning 'east' and yertala meaning 'flowing water'.
 
Our club acknowledges that we meet on the traditional lands of the Kaurna People, and we pay respect to the culture, heritage, and continuing connection that the Kaurna people feel to their lands.
Each year of the project, 6 Australian midwives will volunteer their time to work with their colleagues in PNG. The buddy pairs will be expected to form a long-term relationship and to mentor others entering the program over the coming years.
