Walking Trails: One of the key Community Projects in recent years has been the establishment and mainenance of two walking trails in the Brownhill Creek area. The first is the Max Holbrook walking trail (named in honour of past member Max) which takes the walker from the Carrick Hill car park to the top of Brownhill (see photo at left). The second is the Peter Nelson Walking trail, named in memory of the husband of past state Governor, Marjorie Jackson-Nelson. This trail takes walkers from near the Brownhill Creek caravan park to the car park at McGelligots Quarry.
Project activities include clearing the trail, building fence “overpasses” and constructing steps at steeper sections. Both trails are extensively used by all sections of the community.
ShelterBox Australia is a project of the Rotary Club of Endeavour Hills (Vic) and the accredited international affiliate of the ShelterBox Trust UK and administers ShelterBox in Australia, raising funds to provide shelter and clean water to victims of disasters.
ShelterBox was one of the first aid organizations to reach cyclone victims in Myanmar, delivering a shipment of 644 boxes within a few days and another 1,050 within two weeks of the disaster. It has also distributed 800 boxes to China as at 30th May 08), providing assistance to the hundreds of thousands left homeless after the May earthquake.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary’s leadership training program for young people. RYLA participants can be ages 14-30, but most clubs and districts choose to focus on a narrower age range, such as 14-18 or 19-30. Our young RYLA students spend a week at camp participation.
RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to;
- Demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth
- Provide training experience for selected youth & potential leaders
- Encourage leadership of youth by youth
- Recognise young people who are rendering service to their communities.
