About the project

The Youth Hub has been jointly funded by Council ($706,000), the Victorian Government ($300,000), and the Local Roads and Infrastructure Program ($155,000).

As part of this project, Nillumbik will be redeveloping its community facility located at 32-34 Elizabeth St, Diamond Creek, into a dedicated, stand-alone youth hub to provide centralised support for young people 12-25 years old.

The refurbished building will feature a new kitchen and flooring, a large multi-purpose room and two smaller program rooms, an office space, two consulting rooms, and a new outdoor covered area with an amphitheatre, yarning circle, seating and landscaping.
