The Rotary Club of Doncaster was formed from territory ceded by The Rotary Club of Melbourne on 31 May 1972.

The club commenced with 35 Charter members with only one former Rotarian (David East); the other 34 members were new to the world of Rotary. The rest is history as we embarked on our journey of unbroken service to the community ever since ....
