Need a venue? Why not use one of our community centres or halls.

Community Spaces

We offer a variety of community facilities for hire. These facilities can be used for children's birthday parties, christenings, family reunions and various sporting and exercise groups.

COVID-19 update

Due to the recent changes in State Government restrictions, our community facilities are slowly reopening for both casual and regular hirers.

There are changes to the permitted capacity of our facilities, which is dependent on which method of attendance record keeping you use for your event. If paper based recording is being used there is a limit of one person per 4 metre square, or if electronic/QR code registration of attendees is being used then a limit of one person per 2 metre squared is permitted.
