Hervey Bay Community Centre


The Hervey Bay Community Centre is managed by the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre.

What is the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre - HBNC?

The Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre is a place where members of our community can meet for friendship, information, support, action on a community issue, self-development, community involvement, or to access visiting or resident services.

The Neighbourhood Centre is more than bricks and mortar. It is a building, but it is also the combination of the efforts of many people, paid & unpaid, who have energy, enthusiasm, interest, a sense of caring, perseverance, a willingness to change,  the capacity to stay in touch with local people, awareness of the needs of our community and a conviction that the Centre is an important tool in achieving people‚Äôs control over their own lives.
