Neighbourhood services

At Ultimo Community Centre

Ultimo Community Centre offers services for locals and visitors of all ages.

If you would like to learn a new skill, develop your cultural and creative interests or perhaps just want to meet new people, Ultimo Community Centre has a range of adult education programs hosted in a friendly environment.

Kids can take part in an exciting array of after-school and school holiday programs, while younger children can be cared for by our professional and experienced team. Older residents can also enjoy many programs as part of the City’s services.

The centre has several community groups that regularly run programs and services at the centre. These groups are not-for-profit and independently run with the support of the City through various grants and sponsorships


The groups are open to anyone and most activities are free, however some may charge a small fee to cover costs.

Ultimo Community Centre also encourages community groups to use the centre to run their services or programs and can help put your group in the right direction to receive sponsorships and grants from the City.
