Whilst the primary aim of Lionesses is to help others, it is not just about raising funds and providing community service. Being a Lioness member opens up new doors to a network of friends. In Australia, Lionesses participate in local, district, state and national seminars, forums and conventions. They share fellowship with a large circle of fellow members. ‘Break-away’ weekends are organised by many districts and states for fun and fellowship.
Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917, while the first Lioness Club was formed in 1975 in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina USA. The first Lioness Club in Australia commenced in 1976.
In Australia and Papua New Guinea there are about 102 Lioness Clubs with 2000 members who enjoy helping people in their community who are less fortunate than themselves. At the same time the Lioness enjoy a bond of friendship that extends not only within Australia but throughout the world.

Lioness and Lions work together in a variety of activities. Seeing the need in the local community they donated a mobile shower to Maroochydore Neighbourhood Centre.
