Community centres play an important role in providing opportunities for residents to engage in social, cultural, recreational and educational activities within their communities. The Gold Coast has over 40 venues across the city from Ormeau in the north to Kirra Hill in the south and west to Springbrook. These facilities receive over one million visitations a year.
Venues vary from small community halls to dynamic community hubs integrated with other facilities such as aquatic centres, branch libraries and parks. A number of the more recent additions include specialist spaces such as music recording studios, arts workshops, performance spaces and dance studios.
From yoga to Zumba™, weddings to conferences, band rehearsals to theatre performances, and training courses to community meetings - you name it, and there is a fair chance it is on at one of our community centres. To find out what activities are happening check out the 'what's on' guide for each venue in the brochures and fact sheets section at the foot of each City-managed community centre's page or contact the manager.
If you’re looking for activities after school or during school holidays visit our Community Centres Youth Program page.
Most centres include function and meeting rooms, auditoriums or main halls, and kitchen facilities, making them ideal for community and private functions. The majority of centres are available for hire between 7am and 11pm daily.
