We are an active and friendly club located in Adelaide's eastern suburbs. For forty years, our passionate members have been voluntarily dedicating their time and effort to delivering hands-on projects and services for our local community and for people in need abroad. We also raise funds for important social and health-related causes.  To achieve this, we have a strong working relationship with local organisations, schools, and the Campbelltown City Council, supported by our incredible local business community. 
 
If you have visited our kiosk at Thorndon Park Reserve, enjoyed one of our famous sausage sizzles, or purchased timber products from our team at the Athelstone Community Workshop, you have helped us to deliver meaningful change for those in need. Thank you!
Beginnings
The provisional Club of Morialta was formed on 30 May 1984, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Campbelltown. The charter was issued on 17 September 1984 to a Club membership of 28, and the Charter night was held on 3 November 1984 at the Dom Polski Centre in Adelaide, where Charter President Trevor Stirling was inducted. The first meeting of the Rotary Club of Morialta was held on 6 June 1984.
 
Current activities and projects
 
PNG Midwifery Project. 
 

Community Workshop Athelstone. This initiative brings together groups of people to share skills in woodworking and other crafts. We design and build specific products to raise funds whilst providing an excellent social and friendship environment.

 

Youth Projects. Each year we pay a scholarship for an indigenous nurse to complete their medical studies, improve driver awareness and road safety for young people, expose young scientists to a variety of forums to further their career options, and facilitate youth exchange and leadership opportunities. 

 

Thorndon Park Kiosk. We manage and operate this facility on behalf of Campbelltown City Council. Club members and friends voluntarily contribute to this very successful fundraiser. It provides us with significant funds each year to direct towards our projects.
 
BBQ Fundraising. Our specialty is cooking gourmet sausages and steak sandwiches with our modern mobile BBQ catering trailer. We cook at major functions such as Australia Day at Elder Park, many local events at Thorndon Park and our very successful annual fundraiser Breakfast in the Park, raising funds for local and overseas projects. We also provide a BBQ service at community events such as Star Disco for people with disabilities and Greening Australia tree planting events.
 
 
Our achievements
International Infancy, Midwifery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology (IMOG) Aid Program in East Timor. This project was fully developed by our club to save lives and improve the health of mothers and children. IMOG works as a health partner with the Government of Timor-Leste. We provided a variety of services including mobile mid-wife visit, ambulance operations and saved lives in this remote area of the world.
 
Other projects we have delivered, include:
  • Development work and improvements to the Morialta Conservation Park and Picnic Ground.
  • Training programs for long-term unemployed, with emphasis on youth literacy.
  • Catering for Annual Christmas Party for young people with cancer.
  • Multicultural Dance and Music Festival in Thorndon Park Reserve, February 2023
 
Friendship Club
Since 1995, we have enjoyed a friendship association with The Rotary Club of Usa in Japan. Our clubs visit each-other on a two-year rotating basis. This is a unique opportunity to share culture, knowledge, and friendship.
