We acknowledge the Wadawurrung Traditional Custodians of the land on which our offices stand and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. We acknowledge the sorrow of the Stolen Generations and the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We also recognise the resilience, strength and pride of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Our History

The Grovedale Community Centre was constructed and officially opened in 1986 within the Shire of South Barwon. Funding was made available through the State Government. The Grovedale Senior Citizens Club became one of the several tenants, along with a branch of the municipal library. The Grovedale Senior Citizens Club was successful in gaining a grant through the State Government that enabled a contribution of $180,000 to the construction of the Centre. You can read more here.
