 Rotary Club of Howrah is an active Club supporting all Areas of Rotary Service. In participating in these activities we encourage those offering whole Club Fellowship.

Hobart with a population of 150,000 is the capital city of Tasmania, Australia’s smallest, island state.

Howrah is a residential suburb of Hobart situated across the river from the city centre on the Eastern Shore. It is in the Clarence Municipality. Our members are drawn primarily from the Eastern Shore of Hobart.

During the 40 years of this club the Rotary Club of Howrah has developed a number of local projects.  Amongst them a Barbecue at Cremorne, a shelter for the Orana Girl Guide Camp, parks and pathways at Howrah   and a Barbecue Rotunda at Wentworth Park.

Some of  our newer projects are the reconstruction of the foreshore_walkway at Tranmere , the Rotuma Playground at Tranmere and an ANZAC grave restoration at Rokeby.

The Rotary Club of Howrah sees support for young people as an important aspect of our community service.
