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.

The extension of the lockdown and a planned Austnet power outage means that, at this stage, Yarrunga Community Centre will continue to operate online and won't return on-site until Thursday 29 July.

Our programs will revert to Zoom and links will be sent to participants.

Please stay safe and well during this period, and remember to stay in contact and connected to friends, family and community through phone and social media.
