A valued part of The Smith Family

Gympie VIEW Club


Gympie VIEW Club was formed in 1995.

Currently, the Club sponsors three Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.

GYMPIE VIEW CLUB has over 60 members and covers a large area from Cooroy and Pomona in the south, from Kilkivan and Goomeri in the west, from Curra and Glenwood in the north and from Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach in the east to Gympie in the centre of the region.

We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what it's all about.

Besides regular interesting speakers at our monthly meeting we have many social activities during the month. Our active program officers organise activities such as craft days, a cruise and coffee mornings, which are always very popular with members.  These activities assist us in raising money to support our Smith Family Learning for Life students, who we have facilitated over many years, as well as enjoying ourselves.

2018 Zone Conference

The VIEW Club Zone Conference was held in  Maryborough in September.  The Conference was a great success with club members from Gympie, Fraser Coast and Hervey Bay attending. 

Zone Councillor, Jean Jennings did a wonderful job of organising the conference and the guest speakers were the Deputy Mayor of Maryborough and the head of the committee to create the WW1 War Memorial.  Attendees were treated to a guided tour of the memorial which was truly fantastic, the attention to detail was amazing.

The photo was taken at the new world class  WW1 memorial, which should be a must see for anyone visiting Maryborough.
