Community houses

The Surf Coast Shire has five Community Houses that provide meeting places and hubs of learning for groups and individuals across the municipality. These houses are as diverse as the townships throughout the Shire and welcome all members of the community.

The Community Houses are funded for 25 hours per week and welcome any new volunteers, there's always a lot happening and it's a great place to meet new people or catch up with old friends.

Advocacy and referral services are also offered and more information can be obtained by calling in or contacting the Coordinators on the numbers listed below. You can also ask for a copy of their latest course guide listing each House's events and activities.
