Built in 1905 to house a local Working Men’s Club, the building was the home of the Wadestown Library from 1932 until 1985 when the current library was built.

It has been run as a small community centre ever since, formerly hosting a community crèche (now closed) for 30 years, and the Wadestown Toy library (ongoing) during school terms, as well as other activities and classes.


The Wadestown Community Centre is located at 46 Pitt Street, Wadestown (up the hill off Lennel Road).


Limited parking is available as it is a residential area.


There is a ramp leading to the centre, but building access is not easy. No disability toilet.
