News and information frm Districts 9450 ,9460 and 9470




The Rotary Club of Heirisson is part of Rotary District 9450,
the largest (in area) Rotary district in the world.
The Club's name comes from the small, sandy island in the middle of the Swan River
that bisects Perth city.
Heirisson Island was named after Midshipman Francois Heirisson
who rowed a longboat up the Swan River to where modern Perth now stands.
Heirisson was on the French ship "Le Naturaliste"
which was part of the Nicholas Baudin scientific expedition (1801-1804)
Today Heirisson Island supports the Causeway Bridge that carries
vehicle traffic into and out of the city each day.
