ROTARIANS went wild during a visit to Australia Zoo with club presidents from across the South Pacific.
The men from Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Nauru joined some Australian counterparts for a VIP tour of the Beerwah tourist attraction before taking part in a Rotary district conference at Twin Waters Resort, Mudjimba.
The conference started on Friday and ends today.
The district governor of the Rotary Club of Glasshouse Mountains, Trevor Taylor, said it was special to have club presidents from the South Pacific visit the Sunshine Coast.
"The idea is to get them to mix with our members in Queensland so we can get to know one another," he said.
"We would ultimately like to encourage more projects in those countries."
Yesterday, the conference heard from Fr Charlie Burrows, of the Oblate Mission in Indonesia, who spoke on working with Muslim communities in the villages of South Java.
