We are a city-based club with a dynamic and interesting cross-section of busy, focused women, committed to the service and advocacy goals of Zonta International. Our members come from a wide range of professions including accountancy, law, engineering, consulting and more. In 2020 we formally changed our name from the Zonta Club of Brisbane Metro Breakfast Inc to the Zonta Club of Brisbane Sunrise Inc.
