The Lions Club of Forrest & District was formed in 1983 and is an integral contributor to the community of Forrest & surrounding district including Barwon Downs, Gerangamete, Yeodene and Barramunga. The Club supports all sectors of the community – children, youth, families, the ill, the elderly, sports clubs, community groups and public halls. Wherever there is a need the Lions are there.

Lions Clubs International, now 100 years old, is the largest service organization in the world with over 1.4 million members in over 200 countries, in more than 46,000 Clubs just like ours.

Our signature and major activity is the Forrest SoupFest, held each year on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. SoupFest attracts a significant number of locals and visitors from as far afield as Melbourne who enjoy the delicious soups, live music and festive atmosphere.
