One Centenary Hub for Everyone

Fun and healthy interaction with members of the community helps people in the Centenary suburbs to better appreciate life in this part of Brisbane. That is what the Centenary Community Hub is all about.

The Hub is a product of the community’s fight to have a community centre of its own. For more than two decades, residents around the Centenary area have pushed for such a hub.

Their plea was granted in November 2011, when the Centenary Community Hub was opened at 171 Dandenong Rd, Mt Ommaney.

The club is managed by the Centenary Community Connections (CCC), a non-profit volunteer organisation working to improve interaction and connection among members of the Centenary community.

Hub for All Ages

Since its inauguration, the Hub has become a main venue for different kinds of activities that bring together people from all walks of life.

Every day of every week, people young or old get to enjoy fun activities, learn new skills, or do something good for themselves or for the community. Activities cover a broad range, from music to dance to martial arts and even cross-stitching and knitting.
