Established in 1973
Initiated by a small group of passionate people in 1973, the Centre has played a vital role in community life.
During the neighbourhood house boom of the 1970's - a result of great upheaval and social change - people sought out new knowledge, social fulfillment, and purpose. Neighbourhood houses provided this, and became an important sanctuary for the local community.
Today, the Centre offers a still growing number of courses and events to choose from, provides a meeting place for a variety of different social groups, and helps to better the community through projects and partnerships.
Our Vision, Our Purpose
With the help of our programs and activities, we aim to boost community growth through personal growth, and add to the positive contributions each of us can make to the community.
We offer opportunities for the mind, heart and health, and encourage development and personal growth by responding to the social, recreational and educational needs of the community.
It is important to us that we deliver accessible activities that reduce social isolation, improve well-being, and add value to the community.
We wish to provide a space for members of the local community to share their knowledge, skills, and experience with others.
What we value most is maintaining a harmonious, diverse, and flexible learning environment, and treating others with the utmost respect and integrity.
Moving forward, we would love to expand our programs, services and activities to meet community needs, develop and improve our facilities, and participate in more partnerships and networking to ensure we continue to provide the best service we can.
Shared Kitchen Space
Kitchen facilities for all to enjoy! Make yourself a cuppa, throw your lunch in the microwave, or grab a sneaky cookie to nibble on.
Courtyard and Garden
Gorgeous outdoor spaces to explore, from our hand-made mosaic and courtyard area, to the flourishing gardens. Soak up the sun surrounded by nature!
Rooms for Hire
Small and large functional rooms for hire. Have a community group meeting but no place to hold it? We've got you covered.
We are grateful to work and live on the lands of the Wurundjeri & Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
