We are a small and motivated breakfast club with members drawn from a wide range of vocations. Our goal is to serve our local community with a strong focus on youth. Our two primary activities are the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) which is an event for high school students held annually at the Museum of Australian Democracy and DreamCricket, which provides opportunities for primary school children with disabilities to play cricket. We enjoy the friendship and fellowship associated with Rotary service.

The Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise was successful in gaining an Australian Government Grant of $20,000 as part of the Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program.  Rotary is committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment.
On Friday 31 March, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, and Her Excellency Mrs Hurley joined members of the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise in planting 96 native trees and shrubs along the Molonglo River in Denman Prospect.  Also attending, were Mr David Smith MP, Federal Member for Bean, and school children and teachers from the Evelyn Scott School in Denman Prospect.  The Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise put out a call for community-minded lovers of nature, who were keen to “green” Denman Prospect along the Molonglo River.  A small army of Rotary Club members and community volunteers from across Canberra were assembled to assist with the tree planting the next day on 1 April, when a further 180 trees were planted.
The Denman Prospect school students were extraordinarily enthusiastic.  Some 30 students from Years 5 and 6 with their teachers greatly assisted with the planting of trees and shrubs. 
The Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise is grateful to the ACT Parks and Conservation Service for their immeasurable assistance with this activity, together with the Contractor, Regenerative Landscapes Australia, who will finalise the project.  Shortly, a total of 400 trees and shrubs will have been achieved in the Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program.
 Please advise visitor attendance or member non-attendance to Peter McDermott before 12.00 noon Tuesday every week
