Since 1968 - over 42 years Community Service in the Derwent Valley
New Norfolk is located 37 km north west of Hobart, Tasmania. It is a fascinating historic town full of interesting and unusual attractions. The richness and variety of their historic buildings, the superb Salmon Ponds, the old Oast Houses and the gentle undulations of the countryside on either side of the Derwent River make this one of the most attractive areas in the whole of southern Tasmania.
The Lions Club of New Norfolk Inc was chartered in November 1968 with 22 members. It has been very active throughout its life and has developed a mutually beneficial partnership with the Derwent Valley Council.
All Lions, Leos & Lioness (and Partners) are welcome. It would be appreciated if you could contact our Lion Tamer or Secretary so that the appropriate catering can be organized. Our club has now reverted to a full dinner meeting ($12.00), this comprises main course and desert.
The clubrooms are fully licensed for our meetings and has a well stocked bar.
We are the Lions
We are part of an organization of 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries and geographic areas, who meet the needs of our local communities and the world. Lions members conduct vision and health screenings, build parks, support eye hospitals, award scholarships, assist youth, provide help in time of disaster and much more.
New Norfolk LEOs

Becoming a Lion
Lions club members are men and women who strive to make a difference in their local community as well as in communities worldwide. Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.
