The Wimmera.  Everything you need.


Joining a club or group is a very common way that people in the Wimmera make friends and socialise. If you would like to join a club, do not be afraid to call the contact person or just go along to one meeting to see if you like it.
Each year the Wimmera Information Network publishes the Community Directory, which contains a full list of clubs and groups.


Oasis is a new support group for professional people who have moved to the Wimmera from overseas. The Skilled Migration Program staff have more information.

Lions Clubs

Lions Clubs are part of community life, in the cities and in the country. Clubs are easily identified by their distinctive Logo, the trademark of the Association, and the 'We Serve'; motto seen on road signs throughout the country. Clubs may either provide service or raise Money for their community. Most of the Money raised goes back into the community, either directly or indirectly through National and International Projects.


Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business, professional and community leaders. Clubs are non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races and creeds.

Rotary Clubs meet weekly.
