Now open 7 days a week!
We are excited to announce that we will be opening on weekends as of Saturday, 17 July 2021.
We have received funding from the ACT government for an initial 12-month trial of weekend opening from 9am to 1pm.
The Saturday and Sunday opening will include access to all the Community Hub services and facilities such as computers, phone and showers. We will also be providing morning tea for guests.
