District 201Q3, Queensland, Australia



Historically, some women have participated as Lioness. Lioness Clubs are projects of Lions Clubs and have provided the opportunity for women to participate in community service without becoming full Lions members.

Whilst the primary aim of Lionesses is to help others, it is not just about raising funds and providing community service. Being a Lioness member opens up new doors to a network of friends. In Australia, Lionesses participate in local, district, state and national seminars, forums and conventions. They share fellowship with a large circle of fellow members. ‘Break-away’ weekends are organised by many districts and states for fun and fellowship.

In Australia and Papua New Guinea there are about 102 Lioness Clubs with 2000 members who enjoy helping people in their community who are less fortunate than themselves. At the same time the Lioness enjoy a bond of friendship that extends not only within Australia but throughout the world.

The Lioness Club of Golden Valley Keperra meets at the Club Den on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
