Commitment to Rotary

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.


As a Rotarian, I will:

1. Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life

2. Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect

3. Use my professional skills through Rotary to mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve people’s quality of life in my community and in the world

4. Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians

Our Club

We are Local Channel People working for you in celebration of what can be done in our community!

Rotary at work

The Rotary Club of D’Entrecasteaux Channel is one of 47 Rotary clubs across Tasmania.  It serves the Kingborough Municipality south of and including Margate, a town some 27km south of Hobart.  The club was chartered in 1983 as the Rotary Club of Margate, but the charter was amended in 1998 to reflect the broader community served by the club, namely the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

Fortnightly meetings are held on a Tuesday, 6.30 for 7pm, at the picturesque Oyster Cove Inn at Kettering. New members are welcome to attend any of our meetings and our other fundraising functions.

Our Club supports Australian Rotary Health Research, The Menzies Centre, Guide Dogs Australia, Riding for the Disabled Kingborough, Snug Village and our local primary and high schools to name a few. We build bus stops, chop wood, bbq, mentor, bake,

Our club also supports young people within the Channel area. We have supported the National Youth Science Forum, the Windward Bound project and to assist students to undertake travel for international aid, health and well-being programs.
