Family and Community Place (Yarrabilba)

Opening in October 2018, the Family and Community Place, located at 3 Darnell Street – next to Yarrabilba State School, is a brand-new hub that has been purpose built to support the growth and development of the thriving Yarrabilba and Logan Rivers region communities through:

  • providing a welcoming place where children and families feel comfortable, accepted and appreciated
  • providing a community space, where cohesive relationships and togetherness will be nurtured and strong community relationships developed
  • offering fun and flexible health, educational and social activities which support the growth and development of children and families
  • providing a free service and space for children and families to engage with at will.

Though the Family and Community Place is a cross-agency initiative involving government, non-government and private stakeholders, Children’s Health Queensland will lead the hub for the first year by delivering health and educational programs designed to meet the needs of the community.

Programs on offer (over time) include:

When will the hub be opening?

The building is due for practical completion in September 2018 and we are planning to open the doors to the community in October 2018.

Do I have to pay to join in the programs and services?

All programs and services are free to all and no bookings are required.

If I don’t have children can I still come and use the hub?

The Family and Community Place is a space for the whole community, not just those with kids, though a lot of our initial programs will be targeted to children and families in early developmental stages. However, the book exchange may be of interest to older adults or you may just want to drop by for a cuppa and say hello.

What are the opening hours?

We are in the process of finalising the opening times of the hub and will keep you updated via this page.

Is the hub available at night times and over the weekend?

Initially the hub will not be open after hours or on weekends however we plan to revise this in the future.

Is there free wifi internet access in the hub?

There will be no wifi internet available after the hub opens, however work is in progress for it to be available in the near future.
