In 1987, a number of members of the Rotary Club of Caulfield wished to establish a club that met in the evenings rather than lunchtime. The Rotary Club of Caulfield-Rosstown was born and chartered on 10th November 1987.
Since 1987, the Club’s membership has grown to include male and female professional business people, dedicated to serve the local and international community on a voluntary basis and the intention, also, of sharing fellowship with a network of friend and colleagues within and outside the City of Glen Eira.

Under the management of 30 presidents and a variety of officers and directors, the Club has become recognised within Rotary District 9800 for its many achievements, commitment to international goodwill and youth, and its major events.

The Club has committed itself locally to actively address community needs, including assisting the sick, the aged and young people; internationally to help provide school equipment to East Timor, computers to Brazil, medical supplies to Peru, and ShelterBoxes to disaster-recovery efforts.

We have hosted many youth exchange students from across the globe, and been actively involved with Group Study Exchange for young professionals, and Ambassadorial and Peace Scholars. Our club members have served with distinction at District level.

In 1995 with the amalgamation of local councils in Victoria, the Club changed its name to the Rotary Club of Glen Eira to reflect the area of our club. Also in the 1990s, our Club formed a Sister Club agreement with the Rotary Club of Ogaki-West in Japan. Ogaki was sister city to the City of Caulfield. 

In 2007 and 2008, members from both clubs visited each other to celebrate their respective 40th and 21st anniversaries. We hosted four year old Failyne from Vanuatu as she undertook life saving facial and brain surgery at Monash Medical Centre through ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children).

In August 2015, our Club changed its meeting venue from the London Tavern in Caulfield South then to the Caulfield Glasshouse at Caulfield Racecourse and the Tivoli German Club in Windsor.

Today, the Club is now located at the Rosstown Hotel, 1084 Dandenong Road, Carnegie  and continues to be actively involved within the City of Glen Eira.
