About our Club

Brisbane High-Rise is an active and vibrant club, currently with 41 members who represent a wide range of business and industry professionals working in the CBD or inner city. We pride ourselves on attracting a diverse membership with a balance of male and female members, across a wide age range of both young or seasoned professionals.  Meetings are always engaging, informative and fun, with notable guest speakers each week.  For business people on a tight schedule meetings run strictly to time and finish at 8.30.

As a Breakfast Club, we offer a convenient and friendly 'make-up' opportunity for any Rotarians or guests visiting Brisbane. We regularly welcome visiting Rotarians from other parts of Queensland, interstate and overseas.

A little bit of High-Rise history

The Rotary Club of Brisbane High-Rise was chartered on 4 June 1993 with 27 members sponsored by Brisbane Mid-City.  The club expanded quickly and maintains its numbers at between 40 and 50 members. Of the foundation members many are still active in the club and many others remain in contact.  For 22 years meetings were held at Brisbane's Polo Club, also in the CBD, but when that club closed in June 2015 we were welcomed by the Marriott Hotel. Since chartering High-Rise has supported many local community projects. 

We are an active club and you can find out about our projects by visiting Club Projects.
