Rotary… serving the local, national and international community.

Upper Blue Mountains Sunrise is a group of like-minded men and women, all volunteers, who have a passion for making a difference here in the Mountains and around the world. We are ordinary people who love helping others, with a focus on families and communities.

Each week our members are inspired by excellent speakers and community leaders who inform us about interesting issues or challenge us to be better people. We enjoy the friendship of our fellow Rotarians and have plenty of fun along the way.

We meet every Tuesday morning at 7:15am at the Mountain Heritage Hotel in Katoomba.

Come along and see for yourself.



Upper Blue Mountains Rotary is organizing a fundraising concert to raise money for these two dehabilitating neurological diseases. The funds are desperately needed to help the sufferers of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and Huntington’s Disease (HD) and their families cope with what are very difficult and ultimately fatal diseases.

Friday 2nd September at St Marys Rugby League Club (Saints) from 7:00pm.

All funds raised will be donated to Motor Neurone (NSW) and Huntington’s (NSW) on a 50/50 basis. We might add Terry Rae and his group are all donating their services free for this fundraiser. Also Saints are donating the venue and resources to help the cause.

About the Concert

We have enticed the renowned Terry Rae and his Big Swing Band featuring the legendary Ed Wilson on trombone. The Big Swing Band is made up of 18 musicians, three vocalists and three dancers. It will be a mixture of swing, jazz and pop. It is a top show, plenty of entertainment and pizzazz for all ages. EdWilsonBobMontgomeryTerryRae_r0_0_5184_3456_w1200_h678_fmax

He has over 40 years in the Australian music scene, with over twenty albums and numerous industry Awards to his credit. In January he was awarded the 2016 Lifetime achievement ‘Songmaker Award’ in Tamworth.

 This concert is a prelude to local Rotarian Bob Montgomery’s next bicycle ride from Darwin to Perth next year. Many of you will recall Bob’s finish at Leura last year.

There will be auctions on the night with great prizes. We will have representatives from the two organisations present on the night. It is a fun night but with a serious purpose.

Tickets are $50pp, this cost kept down by the generous support of the entertainers and the Club. We have also arranged a comfortable bus with convenient pick ups and set downs between Blackheath and Glenbrook at $5.
