Runaway Bay Youth Centre
The Runaway Bay Youth Centre is a dynamic urban hub that invites local residents of all ages to take advantage of what's on offer.
The Centre features a music rehearsal room and recording studio for bands, and a small meeting room. The large multipurpose hall can be used for just about anything! Currently it's used by regular fitness classes, bands, a youth group and as a large workshop and conference space.
- Rooms can be hired 7 days per week between 7am and 11pm, with the exception of Christmas Day, Good Friday and ANZAC Day when bookings are available from 1.30pm.
- If you're attending a class or event outside of normal business hours, access is only available to the relevant room.
