Celebrating the Rotary Club of Newcastle's 100 years of service to our City

In collaboration with the Rotary Club of Newcastle, we're installing a memorial to celebrate the Rotary Club's 100 years of service to our City. The memorial will be revitalised and relocated from Civic Park to another park in Newcastle.

The proposed works include:

  • the installation of a new granite boulder to display the existing plaques in one location
  • a garden bed surrounding the memorial, which includes a Queensland Fire Wheel tree

These plaques honour the visitation of Rotary International Presidents to Newcastle. The Queensland Fire Wheel tree is the original species that was planted in Civic Park in 1973 by William Carter, the Governor of Rotary International.

Where will the memorial be installed?

We're seeking feedback from the community on the most appropriate location for the memorial. Proposed locations include:

  • Centennial Park, Cooks Hill
  • Nesca Park, Bar Beach
  • Rotary Park, Hamilton

Thanks for having your say!
