Community centres and neighbourhood houses

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Council services are changing.

Information about Council's response to Coronavirus and the effect on services can be found here.


There are 11 community centres and neighbourhood houses in Hobsons Bay, providing affordable programs and activities suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds. Programs include:

  • adult education
  • vocational training
  • computer classes
  • health and fitness programs
  • art and craft sessions
  • personal development
  • social activities
  • self-help groups
  • discussion groups

Meeting rooms are also available to hire and occasional childcare is available at some of the centres.

The staff at community centres and neighbourhood houses have an excellent knowledge of other local services.
