Yeronga Community Centre

Yeronga Community Centre

The Yeronga Community Centre has been providing a helping hand to the local community since we opened our doors in September 2012.

Grown from the efforts of the Yeronga Flood Recovery Centre – a local community initiative that responded locally to the Brisbane Floods of 2011.

Now we continue that tradition by providing a friendly space for people to meet, use our facilities, create connections, learn new things and access support.

We offer a range of programs to create strong and active communities including:

  • Information and referral services
  • Art and craft activities
  • Seniors program
  • Computer and printing assistance
  • Community breakfasts
  • Social events

Yeronga Community Centre has a wide range of activities and events we run together with the local community.

Bread Basket
Free bread is available each day thanks to Brumby’s Moorooka and Le Campagne bakery at Greenslopes. Donations are gratefully appreciated and allow this program to be self-funded.

Seniors Morning
In 2015 we began a pilot program to increase and enhance socialisation and interaction in our senior community. The program includes a cooking program for our seniors who may not be eating as well as they should. Indoor bowls, trivia and games, old time music, games and dance to improve and enhance non strenuous physical activity, promote cognitive stimulation and having fun. This program enables seniors to interact with others in their community in a welcoming engaging environment at low cost. It is a weekly gathering for morning tea, conversation and activities from 10:00am-12:00pm.

Craft Morning
Every Thursday morning from 9:30am-11:30am a craft activity is held. Past activities that the craft group members engaged in included running the craft stall at Yeronga State School Fete and participating in the 5000 Poppy Project for the ANZAC Day 100 Year anniversary.  All levels of ability are welcomed and instruction is provided. There is no cost and morning tea is included.

Community information, support, referral and advocacy
Including telephone access, community newsletter, information and referral to assistance and support with social and community needs. Laptops and internet access is available to community members. Please note: Some restrictions apply regarding time and access.

Join us as we countdown to the brand-new Yeronga Community Centre. 

The centre will be open before the end of this year for community members to connect, share, learn and support one another. We’ll send out regular updates so we can count down together!

Bec Langdon’s (Community Plus+ President) thoughts on the new community centre  

The Villa Street site is a wonderful reflection of community and we are so excited to have a permanent home in the area after 12 years.  With the new Community Centre in the Heart of the site, we will build a thriving connected hub for all ages, abilities and members of our community.  I am particularly excited to be collaborating with our co-locators Annerley Stephens History Group and All Gauge Model Railway Group and every organisation joining us in the precinct for an inclusive and thriving precinct!

How did this new community centre come about? 

The Yeronga Community Centre has been working with the local community since September 2012. Grown from the efforts of the Yeronga Flood Recovery Centre – a community initiative that responded locally to the Brisbane Floods of 2011.  Since that time, the Yeronga Community Centre has operated from seven locations in Yeronga, with the Community Plus+ Management Committee investing a significate amount of time advocating for a permanent location.  A 2017 state government election commitment found a permanent location in the Yeronga Community Centre in the Yeronga Priority Development Area, now called Parkside Yeronga. Community Plus+ thanks Mark Bailey MP, Graham Perrett MP and Cr Nicole Johnston for their commitment to this new centre. Community Plus+ will continue to run all current activities and services in the new Yeronga Community Centre. Because we’ve been a key contributor to the design, there’s even a commercial kitchen for all the amazing meals Yeronga volunteers make from donated ingredients.

Where is the new centre? 

Parkside Yeronga is next to Yeronga State High School.  It’s a 10-minute walk from the current Yeronga Community Centre, as shown in the Google Map below.


Timeline and Construction Update 

Community Plus+ plans to have the new Yeronga Community Centre open in early December, with a more formal opening in the new year. We’re excited that the building is really starting to take shape, with the roof installed recently.  The next issue of the Yeronga Community Centre Countdown is planned for late September.
