The Bundaberg & District Neighbourhood Centre is located in the Historical Kenalwyn House at 111 Targo Street, Bundaberg

We are funded by Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to provide services and support to the community of Bundaberg.

The Centre is a well established community organisation incorporated in 1992 and is an information referral service with strong interagency connections within the community and offers a variety of community support programs.

We also have an extensive range of community support services information available.

We are currently holding a Bundaberg Snapshot survey
- could we ask you to please complete it online here (or fill in a hard copy at the Centre)?  Thank you.
