Welcome to Nelson West Rotary

– the friendly club!

Join the fun and help the Nelson community at the same time

The members of Rotary Club of Nelson West enjoy contributing to our community together with being part of the worldwide network of clubs.

We meet on Wednesday evenings to hear speakers, plan projects and enjoy each other’s company as we watch the sun set over Tasman Bay. Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings as a guest by simply calling or emailing us.

Our club organises the Boulder Bank Walk each year, and through our fundraising efforts we support the Nelson Food Bank, Coastguard, Nelson Hospice and other local organisations. We also contribute to international projects, including ShelterBox and Polio Plus, Rotary International’s flagship programme that is “this close” to eradicating polio from the earth.


Boulder Bank Walk

Sunday March 10th 2024

Principal Sponsor

Every year in March we run the Boulder Bank Walk enabling people of all ages to explore this Nelson icon.

We transport participants by bus to the start of the walk and bring them back from the Cut by boat.

A lot of families join us and help to pick up rubbish that builds along the coast.
The old lighthouse is open for the day and you can learn the history and climb to the top for a stunning view.
Funds raised on the day go to local organisations and the Rotary Foundation.

See Boulder Bank Walk on this site
/menu for more details.

Getting from the car park to the reception area at Nelson Hospital can be a daunting task if you are elderly or have a disabilitiy.

So our Rotary Club came up with the idea of having a buggy to help those people in need.

The latest model cost just over $25,000 of which $5,000 was funded by Nelson West Rotary Club.

A team of rostered volunteers is on duty everyday.
