Robert Van Wegan

Past President

Rob has been a member of Rotary since 1996 and President of our club in 2003/2004. After migrating from Holland at age 4 together with parents and 5 siblings, Rob initially lived in the migrant camp at Bonegilla, Victoria before settling in Gippsland. Rob's father had a number of bakeries in Victoria and NSW. Following in his father's footsteps, Rob became a baker at age 13. Married to Marilyn in 1970 they started their own business the same year.

Rob and Marilyn have two sons, Dane and Ben. Dane is a 3rd generation baker having established his own business in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Ben is a Town Planner. Rob and Marilyn have 4 wonderful grandchildren.

Now, happily retired in 1994 from baking at his last business in Hastings Street, Noosa Heads, Rob has more time to engage his passions as a classic car enthusiast. Rob is acclaimed as founder of the Noosa Beach Classic Car Club and participates regularly in the annual Historic Noosa Hill Climb. Rob lovingly maintains several classic cars and enters car rallies throughout Australia including Tasmania's Targa and at Leyburn, Queensland.
