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.

Now in its 22nd year 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.
