Annandale Community Centre

Council is in the process of reopening its community centres and facilities to existing community hirers in line with NSW Health advice.

Due to restrictions, venues have a reduced capacity of four square metres for each person. NSW Government restrictions continue to apply to some activities.

Council staff will work directly with regular hirers to reconfirm or amend bookings which were temporarily on hold. Hirers will need to provide a COVID-19 safety plan for their activity for Council's approval, and sign an amended booking agreement before activities can resume.

For bookings enquiries, email or phone Ilce Kostrevski, Acting Community Facilities Coordinator, on 9392 5775.

Once the former Annandale Council Chambers and Town Hall, Annandale Community Centre is a landmark civic building originally constructed in 1899. With its spacious interiors and heritage features, Annandale Community Centre brings old school character and charm to any event.
