Making our communities a better place to live, work and grow
Lions Australia is Australia’s largest service club with more than 1200 clubs in Australia and Papua New Guinea. Lions are friends, family and neighbours who share a core belief: community is what we make it.
At the Lions Club of Manly, we aim to empower volunteers to serve our community, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding.

We are friends, family and neighbours working together for our community.
What’s going on?
Last year may have slowed us down, but it hasn’t dampened our spirits or our continued efforts in the community.
Right now we are busy speaking with sponsors and supporters for our annual circus, Circus Quirkus. This is a great event that enables disadvantaged children to get a long for a day of laughter, magic and acrobatics.
Keep an eye out for us back at our monthly markets at the Manly Village Public School, and at local supermarkets doing food drives for the less fortunate. We’re also actively collecting aluminium cans and bottle caps that go towards our Hart Walker Project.
We’d also love to hear from you if you have any Community Projects you think we should be supporting at, or we could be the catalyst to start.

In addition to giving back, our members benefit from meeting new people and extending their networks with lasting friendships, learning new skills and experiencing personal development, and much more.
From supporting the leaders of tomorrow through our youth programs, to rallying together in times of natural disaster, Manly Lions (and our sausage sizzles) are making a huge difference in our communities.
We want you!
