Townsville Rotary Markets coordinates some of Townsville’s favourite markets including the Strand Night Markets, Rotary Mega Market and the Willows Sunday morning market. The money raised by these markets goes straight back into supporting the local Townsville community via the 10 Rotary clubs.
WE ARE DEDICATED TO OUR COMMUNITY…
The profits from our local markets go directly back into the local Townsville community. In 2019-20, we donated over $291,000 to the local and international community. Unfortunately due to COVID our donations were significantly affected compared to previous years, but it still brought us to a recent milestone – over $1.1 million have gone into the community since 2017!
The various clubs in Townsville have made contributions to a huge number of organisations including; sporting clubs and associations, schools and youth services, domestic violence services, Meals on Wheels, Food Relief NQ, Mission to Seafarers, Guide Dogs Australia, nursing homes, bush fire and disaster appeals, palliative care, Gluyas Lodge, Ronald McDonald house, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul society, Polio Plus and RAWCS.
Rotary International is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million members who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are over 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Our clubs are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Rotary’s main creed is service – to the community, in the workplace and around the world.
The Willows Rotary Markets is a bustling farmer’s and general market. You’ll find a fantastic selection of fresh, local fruit and vegetables along with handmade preserves and food. Explore our local stalls for gorgeous gifts and souvenirs, clothes, art, jewellery and more!
The perfect way to unwind after a busy week, The Strand Night Markets is a great family-friendly night out. Pick up dinner from one of our many local food vans, and browse our shops for a selection of gifts, souvenirs, candles, soaps, arts, plants and more.
