There are a number of different community buildings available around Greater Bendigo for public and community group hire, with halls and meeting rooms in a range of shapes and sizes, providing multifunctional spaces in heritage to modern facilities. They are used for both regular and occasional meetings of community organisations as well as private events.
Each facility is managed by volunteer committees of management. These committees oversee the day-to-day operations of the buildings, and seek to maintain them as fit for purpose on the City's behalf.
Though many of the hirers of these buildings have their own public liability insurances, the City can provide public liability insurance at no cost of up to $20,000,000 for hirers who do not have their own cover. Details of this cover may be provided by a committee of management.
Contact details for the committee of management for each community building is listed below.
