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

An appreciative letter from a student we sent to the National Youth Science Forum in January 2014. We had Adam Dimsey attend the 2016 Forum and a student selected for 2017..
I’m writing to inform the Rotary Club of Howrah that I’ve been selected as a Tuckwell Scholar at the Australian National University for 2015.This is a unique scholarship providing opportunities for leadership and giving back to Australia, and has a monetary value of $104,500 over 5 years.
I’d like to thank Rotary again for providing the opportunity to attend the National Youth Science Forum where I first heard about the scholarship and where I learned the skills and values for which I was selected.
Without Rotary I would not have been placed on my current path, and would not be receiving such opportunities to achieve, and give back to the community. Thank you for your support of me and of the NYSF.
