Welcome to the Gisborne & District Bowling Club. We are a friendly and sociable lawn bowling club located in the Macedon Ranges at Gisborne, just a short 40 minute drive from the Melbourne CBD.

We have both a grass and carpet green that have proven to be perfect for competitive, social, and barefoot bowling.

Our clubhouse is an ideal venue to relax after a game of bowls and we also welcome enquiries about hiring of the venue and other opportunities that can be tailored to fit the requirements of your next social or business function.

New members and visitors are always welcome at our club.
