The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville  is an active and enthusiastic Club which was formed from the amalgamation of the Rotary Clubs of Baulkham Hills, Kellyville (2009) and Winston Hills (2015).

Our Club is involved in many activities at both a local and international level covering aspects such as community service, international service, vocational service and youth. 

 Some of our current and recent projects are The Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Jazz at the Pines , Christmas Tree Sales, Writing Competition for local schools, Australia Day ceremony,  sponsorship of the Bourke Public School breakfast programme,   Youth Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership, numerous partnership projects in India and Sri Lanka and supporting local causes such as North West Disability Services and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

To give you some idea of what Rotary is involved in have a look at a video of some of our activities on this link

Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

  If you would like to give something back to the community and enjoy fellowship and fun with like minded individuals you are always welcome at one of our meetings.

 The Hills are Alive... with award winning gardens


The Sydney Garden Competition is on again in 2023. Steeped in history and intricately linked to the Hills Shire, the first competition ran in 1959 as the brain child of Councillor Eric Mobbs. It became the forerunner of the Orange Blossom Festival, so has a significant place in the cultural history of "The Garden Shire"

Hills residents, businesses and institutions are encouraged to register their gardens by 5pm on Friday 8th September 2023 for spring judging during the Orange Blossom Festival.

This is a call out to all gardeners …. register your gardens and get ready for the judging late September. Entry forms are available at or Council’s website.

The Garden Competition is run each year by The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville and has a variety of categories for gardeners from small Town Houses to residential gardens, to gardens of industrial, commercial and retirement complexes. The competition covers a diverse range of categories for all types of gardeners – even young gardeners in the Schools category. New categories this year include ‘Small Lot Gardens’ and for ‘Environmentally Friendly Gardens.’ The garden competition is open to gardens located in the Hills Shire and adjoining parts of the suburbs of North Rocks, Carlingford, Northmead, Winston Hills, Baulkham Hills, West Pennant Hills, Cherrybrook, Glenhaven, Dural, Arcadia, Galston and Glenorie.

 Gardens are judged by professional and experienced horticulturists and landscapers. In the past judges have included local gardening gurus Judy Horton, Ross Miller, the late Bruce Pike as well as Horticulturalist Lucia Fowler. “There are so many beautiful gardens since the weather challenges of the last few years. We’re so lucky to have so many garden proud residents who are able to enjoy their surrounds in the Hills district. More than ever, this is a time to celebrate the fine gardens of the area this spring” said Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville President, Ian Pascoe.

Entries close on Friday 8th September and judging will take place between 11th and 15th September. The judges will need to visit your garden and during this time and you will be advised of the date and estimated time of their visit the previous weekend.

An Awards Night will be held on Friday 22nd September where award winning gardens and their gardeners will be honored and receive prizes. This event will be at the Harvey Lowe Pavilion, Castle Hill Showground from 7:30PM. Photos of all gardens will be shown from 7:00 PM and at the conclusion of the award presentation a light supper will be served. If the Award Night is unable to be held the  winners will have their prizes delivered to them and all entrants will be advised of the results.

For more information about entering or sponsorship opportunities visit, your local garden centre or Keith Stapley on 0412 079 014

The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville has had a long association with gardeners in The Hills, having run the Garden Competition since early 2000’s and the Hills Open Gardens. The Club proudly opened a Community Garden in March 2021 to mark the 100th year of Rotary in Australia. The Rotary Club of the Hills-Kellyville established and built this garden for the community in conjunction with the Hills Shire Council. Other works of the Club include local community events and the raising of funds for numerous programs far and wide, from the Hills area to outback Australia to overseas communities with specific needs. To be part of an inspired group that is making a difference, contact the club though our website or Facebook page.
