The Rotary Club of Gold Coast was formed on 1 July 2011 by the merger of the Rotary Clubs of Surfers Paradise Central (1977) and Gold Coast Central (1985), two clubs with a proud history of service in the local area.  On this page you can find out more about where we are located, where we meet and our current club leadership.
 
Our club offers opportunities for our members — and those interested in making a difference — to get involved.  Through meetings, social events, and volunteer projects, our members learn about the issues facing our community and communities all over the world, partnering with local, national, and global experts to exchange ideas about potential solutions and to draw up action plans to respond.
 
Along with these opportunities to serve, members also are able to regularly network, resulting in lifelong friendships and business connections.  We are community and business leaders representing different professions, experiences, and perspectives but with a shared desire to connect with others to address the challenges facing our community and communities around the world.
 
Our club is a proud part of this community and of Rotary International. Rotary is a global network of more than 1.2 million members who believe that great things happen when dedicated minds come together.
