Welcome to Yarrunga

Welcome to Yarrunga Community Centre.


Yarrunga means beneath tall trees and evokes images of people gathering to embrace the spirit of community through sharing and learning from each other.

If you’re a  person who values community, wants to learn or try new things or wants to be involved, you will find Yarrunga a place where a sense of belonging and connection occurs naturally in a friendly, safe and inclusive environment.

Yarrunga is a registered charity that offers health and wellbeing programs, social groups, and community information and education.

We’re also a member of Learn Local – a network of over 300 not-for-profit organisations across Victoria offering adult community education and training to people from all walks of life.

Please come and join our Yarrunga family and embrace all that we have to offer.

We're back!

We'll be re-opening on Thursday 18 February - woohoo!

But there are some important mask guidelines:

Masks must be worn unless you are actively exercising.

This means you must wear a mask when you are:

moving around the Centre -  for example from the foyer to your room

setting up or packing up your equipment

cleaning your equipment

chatting with your friends

Only people who provide a medical exemption certificate are exempt -

so ...  no mask, no entry, no exceptions.

We have seen how quickly and drastically things can change and we don't want to go down that road again - so let's all do our bit to keep everyone safe and well and businesses open.

See you back at the Centre soon

(Oh, it feels good to be able to say that!)
