Welcome to the Lions Club of Figtree Inc.
Ordinary people doing extraordinary things - supporting people with a disability, community greening, fundraising for worthwhile causes. During 2018-19, one of our major donations, assisted by the Australian Lions Foundation, was the new Hansa sailing boat for Sailability Illawarra shown below.
Be a part of the change at Figtree.
Figtree is a suburb of Wollongong, just west of the Wollongong Central Business District approximately 80km south of Sydney. The F6 freeway bounds the eastern edge of the suburb which is accessed from a freeway off-ramp. The nearest railway stations are Coniston to the east and Unanderra to the west.
