The Apex Club of Bairnsdale is dedicated to serving our community to improve the health and wellbeing of the community of East Gippsland.

Recently, we have been committed to the following service projects;

  • Apex Playground on Bullumwaal Road in Wy Yung
    • The playground offers a series of equipment to be enjoyed by a variety of age groups. It boasts a sandpit, large and small playground structures, basketball ring, picnic tables, water fountain, a large shady area, and public toilet. The club sees this playground as a conduit for positive family relationships and the wellbeing of parents and children of all ages.
  • The Mother’s Day Classic funrun/ walk
    • The Club has been running the funrun/ walk in Bairnsdale for the last 12 years. It is a major fundraising event supported by many businesses and other community groups in the area. All proceeds of the day go towards the National breat cancer research fund. The club sees this event as a vehicle to promote health and wellbeing within the community and an opportunity for families to spend quality time together on Mother’s Day morning.

  • Lifeline National project 2020.
    • The club is excited to support Lifeline in 2020. Mental health and wellbeing is a significant focus for the National and state governments, and also local communities. In rural areas of Australia, in which many of our clubs are located, lifeline is considered a key player supporting mental health across the country.

      Lifeline indicates that “people who call the 24-hour crisis support line do so for a range of reasons including but not limited to; family and relationship concerns, crisis support, suicide prevention, matters relating to abuse and violence, support and information about drug and alcohol use and loneliness”. The online Crisis Support Chat Service is also significantly utilised by young Australians where “84% of online crisis chat contacts are between the ages of 25 and 44, with the main group being 25-34 years of age (25%) and more than 40% of online crisis chat contacts are from rural and remote locations.” The youth represented in these statistics aligns with our membership base and stakeholders from Apex and our regional communities.

      As a club we are excited to promote mental health awareness and support Lifeline which supports our Gippsland community. For more information on Lifeline go to;
