City of Sydney community centres opening information

We’re excited to welcome you back to our community centres

The safety of our communities, customers and employees is our top priority.

To protect visitors and our employees and safely manage physical distancing and hygiene requirements, we are slowly increasing our services.

Please book before you attend any of our centres

Some activities will have a time limit, but there isn’t a time limit for general centre access.

Making a booking ensures that we can manage our venue capacity and won’t need to turn you away at the door.

If you are unable to make it, please let us know so we can accommodate others. Check the schedule and opening days below.

To book, call the community centre directly or email below.

Services available

Our community centres are available for computer access, to talk with a staff member, or to connect with others during this time. Centres are starting to gradually introduce some activities and our free community programs will still be available online for now.

There will be no tea or coffee available. Please bring any refreshments you may require. Unfortunately we are unable to provide community transport.

When you arrive for your booking scan the QR code at the entry and enter your name and phone number or email address. You must do this each time you attend. If you don’t have a phone that can do this, ask a staff member to assist you. This is a NSW Health requirement and will be used for contact tracing purposes only if necessary.

  • notify staff if you start to feel unwell
  • maintain 1.5m physical distance from all people including staff
  • wash or sanitise your hands on entry and regularly after that
  • wipe down equipment that you use or touch with the sanitising wipes supplied.
